There are 7,485 BMW 7 Series
sedans involved in a recall over a software glitch that can cause the sedan's doors to open unintentionally "due to road or driving conditions or occupant contact with the door." The issue was discovered in Japan in 2007, covering cars from the 2005 to 2007 model years, and it led to a recall there that same year.
Just after the Japanese recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
asked about the matter in the U.S., to which BMW
responded that it would issue a service bulletin and that during a general software update for the car, the code dealing with the door issue would also be rectified. Four years on, in 2011, when NHTSA asked about the matter again, BMW said that up to 80 percent of the cars had got the new software. After meeting with the German company earlier this year over the door matter and others, a recall is being made official.
