Additional information:

Among the nineteen (19) recalls the NHTSA has announced this February, comes news of the following:

Logo - BMWBMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”) has recalled an estimated 83,016 model year 2007-2013 X5 xDrive30i, X5 xDrive35i, X5 xDrive48i, X5 xDrive50i and X5 M vehicles, 2008-2014 X6 xDrive35i, X6 xDrive50i and X6 M vehicles, 2009-2013 X5 xDrive35d vehicles and 2010-2011 X6 ActiveHybrid vehicles.

These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

According to the NHTSA, an inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the passenger or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

BMW will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 4, 2019. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
