Among the seven (7) recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:

BMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”) has recalled certain 2000-2002 BMW 320i, 323i, 325i, 325xi, 330i, 330xi, 323Ci, 325Ci, 330Ci, M3, 323iT, 325iT and 325xiT vehicles, 2001-2002 525i, 530i, 540i, M5, 525iT and 540iT vehicles, and 2001-2003 X5 3.0i, X5 4.4i, and X5 4.6is vehicles.

These vehicles may have had a driver-side air bag module installed as replacement equipment such as after a vehicle crash necessitating replacement of the original air bag, or as a remedy part for a prior recall. These replacement modules contain an air bag Inflator that may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to lower absolute humidity, temperature and temperature cycling.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, the Inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
