BMW has issued a recall for the 2010 550i Gran Turismo and 2009-2010 7 Series, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is due to a failure to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standard No. 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.” The tire pressure label on these vehicles incorrectly indicates the vehicle’s seating capacity as five passengers when its actual capacity is only four. The rest of the label’s information is correct.

For the 7 Series, this refers to a luxury package that adds the option of “rear comfort seats,” which adds power rear seats and reduces the seating capacity from three to two in the back. The Gran Turismo just recently went on sale.

BMW has not yet said what it will do to fix the labeling issue, so there is no schedule for when the recall will begin. Owners may contact BMW at 800-831-1117 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
