Recall Alert: 2014-2017 BMW i3

2017 BMW i3


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 19,000 model-year 2014-17 BMW i3 REx hybrid hatchbacks

The Problem: The fuel-tank vent line may rub against the ribbed wire protection sleeve of the battery-positive cable, creating a hole in the vent line and causing a fuel vapor leak. In the presence of an ignition source, this can increase the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the fuel vent line and replace it, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: BMW will begin notifying owners on April 3. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
