BMW recalling a grand total of three X3s over instrument panel defect

Filed under: Recalls, Safety, Crossover, BMW, Luxury



We've seen big recalls and we've seen small ones. Some involve millions of vehicles, and some - like the Infiniti Q50 recall on which we reported just the other day - involve just a couple dozen. But this has to be the smallest recall we've seen yet.

"Due to a production process error" in the BMW X3, states the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the notice below, "the tear seam on the instrument panel was not manufactured correctly." Big friggin' whoop, you say? Well, NHTSA points out that it could hinder the deployment of the airbag and send fractures flying everywhere.

The problem was discovered in a select few examples of the 2013 BMW X3 - both xDrive 28i and 35i models - manufactured in the later part of February this year.
