BMW of North America is recalling seven model year 2019-2020 X5 sDrive40i, X5 xDrive40i & X5 xDrive50i vehicles, and model year 2020 X6M vehicles.
The steering column shaft bearing plate may not have been attached properly to the vehicle, allowing it to loosen.
A loose bearing plate can affect the vehicle's handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering column shaft bearing plate and properly attach or replace it -- as necessary -- free of charge.
A notification schedule has not yet been provided.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
