BMWs are some of the most popular cars on the market. They are known for being highly luxurious and extremely responsive on the roads.

While millions of people drive these cars around the world, not all of them are up to par. According to reports, a new recall has just been issued that is impacting loads of BMW drivers.

"BMW has issued a recall for 50 examples of certain variants of the 2019 X3 and 2019 X4. Only 36 X3 variants are involved, covering the sDrive30i, xDrive30i, and M40i, carrying production dates of March 19 and 20, 2019. The remaining 14 vehicles were X4 M40i variants built in the same two-day span," reported CNET.

The recall is in regards to the instrument panel in the cars. The analysis says that a supplier error during a lamination process resulted in panels containing adhesive not specified for the intended purpose. This creates the possibility that the cover over the passenger front airbag might not work as intended in a crash, potentially hindering airbag deployment and increasing the risk of injury.

BMW has been very open and forthcoming about the incident. They say they can quickly and easily fix the problem, but they do need help from the owners. Customers are urged to bring their cars into local dealers so they can be fixed.

"As with all recalls, the job will be performed free of charge, and since the new-vehicle warranty is in effect for all recalled vehicles, there won't be a reimbursement program in place, as nobody should have paid for a repair in the first place. Owners should expect to receive recall notifications in the mail in early June," according to reports.
