5 Series recall by BMW for child seat anchor repairs

5 Series recall by BMW for child seat anchor repairs

BMW has issued a recall in North America for some of its 2016 5 Series models. The estimated number of units being recalled are in the region of 7,162 and the identified models are the 528i, 535d, 535i, 550i, and M5.

BMW’s decision was made soon after they learnt that the affected vehicles have a bent inboard lower anchor for child seats on the left rear side. This could prevent the child seat from fully engaging both anchors and hence failing to comply with the US motor safety requirements laid out by the FMVSS. BMW has taken the necessary measures and dealers have been directed to conduct an inspection from December 24th onwards to carry out repairs if needed, at no cost. 

Of the five models under consideration, only the BMW 530d and M5 are currently sold in India. However, there has been no official communication on BMW India’s part with regards to this recall. Owners of the 530d and the M5 can nonetheless check with their respective BMW dealers if their cars are affected in anyway and as a result would need to bring in their cars for any repairs.
