BMW Recalls 1.6 Million 3-Series Cars for Air Bag Repair

BMW

 

(Bloomberg) – Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) is recalling 1.6 million cars globally for a front-passenger air-bag defect that has caused manufacturers including Honda Motor Co. (7267) and Toyota Motor Corp. (7201) to repair millions of vehicles.

BMW 3-Series models produced from May 1999 to August 2006 should be brought in to fix bag-inflation devices, the Munich-based company said today in a statement. The project is in addition to a 240,000-car recall for the flaw in vehicles built in 2001 through 2003 that was announced in mid-2013. Autos already brought in under that program don’t need to be repaired, BMW said.

The faulty inflaters, from Japanese supplier Takata Corp. (7312), prompted mass recalls at Toyota, Honda and Nissan Motor Co. of more than 5 million vehicles last month.
