There are too many open auto recalls out there, that’s undeniable. Unfortunately, many of the automakers behind these recalls are still looking for fixes, leaving consumers at risk. BMW just joined the list of automakers issuing recalls recently. According to the firm, some of the 2019 X3 and X4 vehicles may experience instrument panel issues. In that case the panels may cover the air bag, which will then fail to work properly in the case of a crash. According to the firm, a supplier mistake during the lamination process added adhesive material that could prevent the air bag from working correctly.
Because this issue is serious and may put lives in danger, it is important that car owners respond to this recall properly.
BMW Issued The Recall After The Supplier Reported The Risk
The supplier told BMW that there could be an issue with the vehicles listed previously. That shows the company was honest, doing the right thing to keep BMW drivers from experiencing injuries.
After the firm told BMW, the automaker worked to identify which vehicles could have the defective instrument panels, issuing the recall. So far, BMW told regulators, the automaker does not know of any accidents or injuries associated with the problem.
Once impacted vehicle owners get the recall alert, dealers will swap out the faulty instrument panel with parts that come with the correct bond. This will protect occupants from suffering injuries in the event of a crash.
While officials are already reporting this recall, the company will begin notifying impacted vehicle owners in early June. Until then, you should contact BMW if you’re concerned your vehicle has the problem. You should also ask the firm more about the problem and how to avoid potential risks until dealers can fix the issue.
