BMW recalls 16 i8s in the United States

BMW recalls 16 i8s in the United States

BMW has issued a recall for their i8 in the United States for a problem in the cars’ dynamic stability control.  

BMW of North America has added that they will recall a total of 16 units that could be affected. These i8s were built between May 29, 2015 and June 5, 2015. The car maker has claimed that the affected units have improperly drilled holes in the dynamic stability control hydraulic unit. As a result, this could restrict the movement of one or more of the component’s pistons which can impact the DSC’s control over the vehicle’s braking and increase the risk of a crash. 

While no injuries have been reported, BMW will inspect the DSC hydraulic unit of the affected i8s (beginning February 10, 2016) and replace the component if necessary, at no cost. BMW had previously recalled 223 units of the i8 that was built in 2014 for a possible fuel leak. Though no announcements have been made in India regarding this recall, you could check with the dealership if you own one.
