Vehicles Affected: Approximately 190,000 model-year 2011-17 BMW X3 sDrive28i, xDrive28i and xDrive35i SUVs, all manufactured between July 2, 2010, and April 14, 2016; model-year 2015-17 X3 xDrive28d SUVs manufactured between March 10, 2014, and March 31, 2016; and model-year 2015-17 X4 xDrive28i, xDrive35i and xDriveM40i SUVs, all manufactured between March 3, 2014 and April 15, 2016

The Problem: The affected vehicles have lower anchor bars for securing child-restraint seats that may become damaged when using the European ISOFIX-type, rigid-style connector child-restraint system, increasing the child’s risk of injury in a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will weld a reinforcing bracket to the lower anchor bars and the vehicle body for free.

What Owners Should Do: BMW will begin notifying owners on July 12. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
