BMW has recently announced that it will recall 150,000 vehicles due to a potential airbag defect. According to BMW sources, the defect may prevent the front passenger airbag to operate during a collision. Specifically, the problem has been found in the front passenger airbag seat sensor mat that was installed in a variety of BMW’s 2004 through 2006 models in the U.S. and Canadian markets.
A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that the airbags might not deploy “even if a sufficiently severe accident would occur.”
The BMW vehicles involved in the recall include the 2006 3-Series, the 2004-2006 5-Series, and the 2004-2006 X3 Series. BMW reports that it will be sending out letters to its customers beginning in September.
