BMW Recalls 1.6M 3-Series Cars For Air Bag Problem

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. The German automaker says it will recall 1.6 million 3-Series cars from model years 2000 to 2006 across the world, including 574,000 in the U.S. The company says it’s taking the precaution because other automakers using similar systems have reported problems. If the bags do not work properly, shards could fly out and cause injury.–finance.html


Hyundai Recalls Vehicles Post Software Glitch

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had asserted some pressure on the automaker to recall the vehicles.

The recall covers 2016 Tucson models with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions made from May 20, 2015 to May 31, 2016. Hyundai says it started getting reports in June that the engines would rev but the SUVs wouldn’t move after coming to a stop.

The problem was intermittent and often didn’t repeat itself, the company said in government documents. Engineers traced the problem to the transmission control computer that monitors driving to refine gear shifting.

If the gas pedal is repeatedly cycled, the Tucson’s may not accelerate, increasing the risk of a crash. Hyundai at first sent a service bulletin to dealers but decided to do a recall after meeting with the safety agency on August 10. The recall began September 7. Dealers will reprogram the transmission computer.

Drivers Forced To Wait For Airbag Recall Fix

DAYTON– This has been a record shattering year for defective vehicle part recalls. Many people are being forced to wait to get their vehicles serviced because of that.

“With so many recalled cars out there, it is something that some dealers are running into where the parts aren’t available, but… follow the dealer or manufacturer recommendations so that you’re making sure that you and your family are safe until that car can be fixed,” said Christopher Basso, Public Relations Manager for CARFAX.

U.S. safety regulators are warning owners of more than 4.7 million vehicles that have been recalled for air bag problems to get them repaired immediately.

The warning issued Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers vehicles from multiple manufacturers that date to 2002.

Inflators can rupture in air bags made by Takata Corp., causing metal fragments to fly out when the bags are inflated in crashes. So far, automakers have recalled about 12 million vehicles worldwide because of the problem.

We called several Dayton area dealerships to see whether they had the replacement parts in for the latest airbag recall.

Several Honda shops said they’re waiting to hear from Honda as to when the new airbags will be in but there’s no time table.

Other dealers, like BMW, are able to make the repairs, but it mainly depends on which manufacturer made your car.

In the meantime, drivers of any of the recalled vehicles are asked to warn anyone who sits in the front passenger seat about the potential danger.

Toyota has only issued the recall for extremely high humidity areas like Florida and island territories. The company is telling those customers to turn off the passenger airbag or not have anyone sit in the front seat.

The inflators have led to multiple recalls from Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, BMW and Mitsubishi.

“Not only are the driver and passenger of that car at risk, but also other people that are on the road around them,” said basso.

Safety advocates believe more than 20 million cars could have the faulty inflators just in the U.S. They say at least four people have died because of the problem.

Basso says you really need to do your homework before buying a used car.

“Put recalls at the top of your list! Make it an important piece of your used car search,” said Basso.

Basso goes on to say that it can create bigger problems when people do not get their vehicle in to have serious issues fixed.

“Not only are the driver and passenger of that car at risk, but also other people that are on the road around them,” said Basso.

Basso say cars and the roads are safer because of these recalls as long as people get them fixed.

“Recalls are a good thing. They help to maintain the safety, performance and resale value of a car, but when those recalls go unfixed it provides an opportunity for those defective parts to fail,” said Basso.
