Update: BMW Driveshaft Recall

BMW is recalling the following vehicles which were manufactured with potentially defective driveshaft output shafts that may break during use:

  • 2020-2021 BMW 530i xDrive
  • 2020-2021 BMW 540i xDrive
  • 2021 BMW 740Li xDrive

“A broken output shaft can lead to a loss of drive power or a rollaway condition in a parked vehicle (if the parking brake is not engaged), increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said. BMW is notifying owners and dealers will replace the output shaft(s), free of charge. This recall began on March 29, 2021.

What’s the Problem?

BMW of North America, LLC, is recalling certain xDrive vehicles over a potential defect which could cause the airbag and seat belt pretensioners to deploy improperly during a crash, increasing the risk of severe injuries or death. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects the following vehicles from model year 2020:

  • BMW X3 xDrive30e
  • BMW X4 xDrive30i
  • BMW X4 M40i
  • BMW X4M
  • BMW 330i
  • BMW 330i xDrive
  • BMW M340i
  • BMW 840i Gran Coupe
  • BMW 840i xDrive Gran Coupe
  • BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe
  • BMW M8 Gran Coupe
  • BMW X3 sDrive30i
  • BMW X3 xDrive30i
  • BMW X3 M40i
  • BMW X3M
  • BMW 840i xDrive Convertible

The sensors in the front seat belt buckles on affected vehicles may inaccurately detect a belted occupant as unbelted, possibly causing the air bag and seat belt pretensioners to deploy improperly in the event of a crash, NHTSA said. If this occurs, there is an increased risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.

BMW is notifying owners and dealers will inspect and replace the front seat belt buckles, as necessary, free of charge. This recall began on May 11, 2020.

  • 2021 BMW 530i
  • 2021 BMW 530i xDrive
  • 2021 BMW 540i
  • 2021 BMW 540i xDrive
  • 2021 BMW 740Li

  • 2021 BMW X6 sDrive40i
  • 2021 BMW X6 xDrive40i
  • 2021 BMW X7 xDrive40i

“Increased electrical resistance can increase the risk of a fire,” NHTSA said.

BMW is notifying owners and dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the connection between the 48-Volt battery and the starter-generator assembly.

This recall began on February 1, 2021.

BMW xDrive Recalled for Axle Separation Problem

BMW is recalling the following xDrive vehicles which were manufactured with axle welds that may separate while driving:

  • 2020 BMW X5 sDrive40i
  • 2020 BMW xDrive40i
  • 2020 BMW X5 M50i
  • 2020 BMW X5M
  • 2020 BMW X7

  • 2020 BMW X7 M50i
  • 2020 BMW X6 xDrive40i
  • 2020 BMW X6 M50i
  • 2020 BMW X6M
  • 2021 BMW X5 xDrive45e v

“The weld between the front axle support and the right front control arm bearing bracket may separate,” NHTSA said. “If the weld between the front axle support and the right front control arm bearing bracket separates, vehicle handling and control may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.”

This recall began on December 18, 2020.

BMW Headlamp Recall

BMW is recalling 2020-2021 X5 sDrive40i, xDrive40i, xDrive50i, X5 M50i, X5M, X6 sDrive40i, xDrive40i, X6 M50i, X6M, X7 M50i and 2021 X5 xDrive45e vehicles. The headlamps on these vehicles may allow a blue light to illuminate, which makes them fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” Oncoming drivers may be confused by the blue light of approaching vehicles, which could potentially increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA said. This recall began on October 30, 2020.

BMW xDrive Airbag Recall

BMW of North America is recalling 2017 530i xDrive, 540i and 540i xDrive and 2017-2018 530e xDrive vehicles for potentially defective airbag inflators which may affect proper deployment of the head airbags. In the event of a crash of sufficient severity, deployment of the head airbag may be impaired and/or the igniter could separate from the inflator, increasing the risk of injury. This recall began on June 22, 2020.
