According to news reports, there is a current recall for 230,000 BMW vehicles to replace potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators. These inflators can explode with too much force and spew shrapnel into drivers and passengers. At least 16 deaths and more than 180 injuries have been blamed on the problem.
This recall covers certain 3 series cars from 2000 to 2002, some 5 series cars from 2001 to 2002, and some X5 SUVs from 2001 to 2003. BMW says the vehicles may have had a driver’s air bag replaced with a Takata inflator after a crash or in a previous recall.
