Recall Roundup: BMW Recalls Some Convertible Models
By Jeff Youngs,
Last week, BMW of North America (BMW) recalled a total of 2,067 model-year 2015 428i convertible, 428i xDrive convertible, 435i convertible, and 435i xDrive convertible vehicles manufactured October 22, 2014, to February 27, 2015. Due to a programming error, the driver's front air bag deployment timing may be incorrect. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208: Occupant Crash Protection.
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the air bag control module with the corrected software version free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417, and may refer to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign number 15V148000.
