New Takata Air Bag Recall for BMW Vehicles

uninsured motorists

This isn’t the first time BMW has had a recall for their Takata air bags. In fact, many customers may be upset to learn that many vehicles in the original recall are back on the list. When the original recall was issued, the proper air bags were not ready, so vehicles were given temporary air bags. Now, proper air bags are available. This means BMW owners will have to get these new air bags installed, even if they already had the interim repair performed.

If you are an owner of the affected cars (posted below,) you should get this repair right away. These Takata air bags can potentially explode, and seriously injure, or even kill vehicle occupants. It should be pointed out that this is no ordinary recall. The National Traffic Safety Administration has said the Takata air bag recall is the largest and most complex recall in U.S history. Over 41 million vehicles have been recalled due to these air bags, and 16 people have been killed by them in the U.S alone. Over 24 deaths and 300 injuries have been reported worldwide.
