BMW is recalling 15,803 model-year 2022-2023 iX xDrive40, iX xDrive50, iX M60, and X1 xDrive28i vehicles due to an air bag issue. The front driver’s air bag may have been manufactured incorrectly and may not deploy as intended during a crash. A driver’s air bag that does not deploy as intended during a crash increases the risk of injury.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on April 7, 2023. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 800-525-7417 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the driver’s air bag.
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.
