Approximately 32,800 model-year 2015-19 BMW X6 SUVs are being recalled because the lower rear-seat anchor bars at the seat crease used to secure a child seat may become damaged over time when used with ISOFIX-type rigid connectors. Damaged lower anchor bars increase a child’s risk of injury in the event of a crash.
BMW will begin notifying owners on Jan. 17. Owners can call BMW at 800-525-7417 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will weld a reinforcing bracket to the lower anchor bars and vehicle body.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
