Recently, vehicles from 25 different vehicle manufacturers were recalled to replace driver and passenger airbags made by parts supplier Takata that may explode and cause serious injury or death. Your BMW may have a faulty Takata airbag. Certain BMW models from 1998—2017 are affected.
A faulty airbag could kill or seriously injure you and other people in your vehicle. You should immediately contact your preferred BMW dealer or BMW Australia to check if your vehicle is affected
As affected vehicles get older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can affect airbags with the fault. If you are involved in a collision, the airbag can go off with too much explosive force causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle. If your vehicle is affected by this recall, we encourage you to take immediate action to have your FREE repair completed at your local BMW dealership. BMW is committed to addressing the needs and concerns of our customers affected by this industry-wide issue.
Please take note that any replacement airbag installed in your vehicle following a collision or other incident may also be faulty. It is critical that you urgently contact a BMW dealer to arrange for the airbag to be checked and replaced, if faulty.
