BMW is expanding a recall of its most popular models to fix a growing air-bag problem that is hitting much of the auto industry recently. The German automaker says it will recall 1.6 million 3-Series cars from model years 2000 to 2006 across the world.
BMW says it has no reports of problems in its vehicles, but they are instituting the recall as a precaution because other automaker using similar air-bag systems have reported problems. Air bag inflators made by Takata Corp can rupture and if that happens, the bags might not deploy properly, resulting in a more serious injury. BMW dealers will replace the air bag systems for free if your vehicle is on the recall list.
