BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
BMW is recalling 840,000 vehicles from 2006 through 2015 that weren’t part of the company’s previous recall for Takata airbags, which covered 765,000 vehicles. The latest models include:

• 2006–2011 3-series sedan and M3
• 2006–2012 3-series wagon
• 2007–2013 3-series and M3 coupe and convertible
• 2007–2010 X3
• 2007–2013 X5 and X5 M
• 2008–2013 1-series coupe and convertible
• 2008–2014 X6 and X6 M
• 2013–2015 X1


Text on Car & Driver's website:

UPDATE 2/10/2016, 11:30 a.m.: Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen are recalling some 1.7 million U.S.-market vehicles for potentially defective Takata-sourced driver’s-side airbags.

The Audi recall covers 170,000 vehicles from model years 2006 through 2013. The Audis involved are: 2006–2013 A3, 2006–2009 A4 cabriolet, 2009–2012 Q5, and 2010–2011 A5 cabriolet.

BMW is recalling 840,000 vehicles from 2006 through 2015; these vehicles weren’t among the roughly 765,000 that BMW had previously recalled for Takata airbags. The BMWs involved are: 2006–2011 3-series sedan and M3, 2006–2012 3-series wagon, 2007–2013 3-series and M3 coupe and convertible, 2007–2010 X3, 2007–2013 X5, 2008–2013 1-series coupe and convertible, 2008–2014 X6, and 2013–2015 X1.

The Volkswagen-branded vehicles, numbering 680,000, are from 2006 through 2014. The VWs involved are: 2009–2014 CC, 2010–2014 Jetta SportWagen and Golf, 2012–2014 Eos and U.S.-built Passat sedan, and 2006–2010 German-built Passat sedan and wagon.

Anyone hear if the recall is going north of the border as well? Presumably the same airbags were used for the models sold here.

Where is the VIN info, or is it all 2013-2015's ?

Thanks for that. At least at this point in time our 2014 X1 is not part of the recall.

I wouldn't say that any X1s are in the clear right now, as it only was announced yesterday and I can pretty much guarantee that BMW cannot update their website vin check that fast.....

So the included cars are from the following generation vehicles:

E90, E91, E92, E93 3/M3
E82, E88 1/1M
E84 X1
E83 X3
E70, E71 X5/X6/M

Not all vehicles of those types are necessarily a part of the recall, but if your car/truck is involved, it will have one of those chassis codes.

As a result, note that if you have any current generation BMW (Fxx) then your vehicle is *not* affected.

Surprising that it applies to all E9X generation except the E92/3 non-M. I wonder why?

Checked my VIN through Dealerspeed (BMW's internal website - as I work at a BMW dealer) and I've got nothing listed as of yet.

Usually when a recall is made - there is a compelling reason. I wonder in what way the airbag is defective.

IE: does it not deploy? Is it a intermittent issue where 1 out of 1000 doesn't deploy? Is it a delayed deploy, etc?

You'd get the new airbag internals, and maybe a new center cover (where the BMW emblem is), but that's it.

Why are Takata airbags being recalled?

The driver or passenger front airbag inflators of certain vehicles could produce too much pressure when the airbag opens. This may break the inflator and increase the risk of injury. Poorly inflated airbags don’t provide maximum protection, and broken inflators may propel sharp fragments towards the driver or passengers.

This defect is more likely to occur if your vehicle has been exposed to sustained high humidity and temperatures for long periods of time. Since these conditions typically do not exist in Canada, Transport Canada considers the risk to Canadians to be low.

when I hit a deer at 65mph and my bags deployed last time I got a new steering wheel, guess I got lucky they replaced the wheel too
