BMW of North America is recalling 138 model year 2018-2019 X3 sDrive30i, X3 xDrive30i, X3 M40i and model year 2019 X4 xDrive30 and X4 M40i vehicles.
The front passenger seat occupant classification system may have been improperly assembled, which could result in the misclassification of the seat as unoccupied, and deactivate the front airbag.
A deactivated front airbag will not deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Dealers will replace the seat foam, which includes the occupant classification system, free of charge.
Owners notification letters are expected to be mailed August 30, 2021.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
