BMW, Rolls-Royce, and Mini vehicles are in danger of experiencing rear seat belt issues, news reports claim.
According to the reports, the BMW Group recalled over 15,000 vehicles. The units come with rear seat belts that are faulty and that may not retract correctly. In this case, the automaker said, the vehicles could expose occupants to injuries in the event of an accident.
Impacted cars include the 2016 BMW 5-Series, 2016 and 2017 BMW X1, 2016 and 2017 Mini Cooper and Cooper S, and the 2017 Rolls-Royce Ghost.
BMW learned of this issue in 2016 when the company launched the first recall. Now, BMW says that the faulty parts come from a third-party supplier. The firm is yet unsure of how it will go about fixing the issue.
The company did not offer any further information on when it will be contacting owners. However, if you are worried for your safety and the safety of your loved ones, you should not wait to contact BMW, Mini, or Rolls-Royce for more information.
