BMW of North America is recalling 51 model year 2018-2019 BMW X3 xDrive30i, X3 sDrive30i, and X3 M40i vehicles with the "Active Lane Keeping Assistant" option.
The steering wheel may be incompatible with the lane keeping assistant function and may not detect if the driver's hands are off the wheel.
If the sensors do not properly detect the driver's hands are off the wheel, the driver may not be alerted by one or more warning signals, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering wheel, replacing it if necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin July 23, 2018.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
