PhotoBMW of North America is recalling 43 model year 2018 BMW X5 xDrive35i, X5 xDrive50i, X5 xDrive35d, and X6 sDrive35i vehicles.

The pivot bolt on the front lower-left control arm may not have been properly hardened, which may cause the control arm to break.

If the lower control arm breaks, vehicle handling and control can be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the lower-left control arms and replace if necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin August 20, 2018.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
