BMW of North America is recalling 6,785 model year 2012-2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i, X3 xDrive35i, and M6 Convertible vehicles and 2model year 013 M6 Coupe vehicles.
The vehicles have a driver's front airbag inflator that may have been improperly welded.
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's front air bag, the inflator housing could separate from the base plate and result in metal striking the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's front airbag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 9, 2017.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
