BMW announced a recall involving 106,182 vehicles over a possible injury concern. According to the company, the vehicles can expose occupants to injuries as the occupant’s head may contact the B-pillar in the event of a crash. Because the pillar may fail to absorb the impact as it should, injuries could be severe.
The firm stated that the B-pillar in the vehicles, which are part of the SUV frame where locks latch to the doors, sits between the rear seats and the front passengers. While the issue that prompted this recall remains unsolved, as BMW works on developing a fix, the company is reporting the recall.
So far, the firm did not register any reports of accidents and injuries associated with this issue. Still, the automaker wants drivers to know that this problem could lead to major injuries. As the firm tests potential fixes, BMW is urging drivers to to keep an eye out for a letter from the firm, which will come once a fix is available.

Don’t Ignore Open Recalls
Many car owners ignore recalls because they believe they can avoid accidents by just being safe drivers. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
Unless you’re a serious car owner who keeps up with his or her car’s maintenance schedule, you are putting your life and the lives of others in danger. That includes responding to recalls.
