BMW recalls 1,650 cars in Russia because of problems with airbags


BMW Rusland Trading announced the recall of 1,652 BMW 3 Series cars sold from January of 1998 to December of 2000. The reason for the recall is that in some cars the driver’s airbag is equipped with a single-stage NADI type gas generator.

There are reasons to believe that a gas generator of this type may depressurize over time, the press service of Rosstandat reported. In cars, the serial number will be checked on the driver’s airbag gas generator. Depending on the results of the inspection, a decision will be made to replace it. All work will be free of charge for owners.

Recall that in December of the previous year; BMW Rusland Trading announced the recall of 19,087 BMW X6 and BMW X6M crossovers that were sold in September of 2017. The reason for the recall was that the use of child seats with Isofix mounts and additional struts on the underbody of the car could lead to destruction of Isofix holding brackets from fatigue. If the holding bracket is broken, the child seat mount is not possible any more. In vehicles, the intermediate insert must be welded to the Isofix retaining bracket.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in 2019, Russian BMW dealers sold 41,520 vehicles - 17% higher than a year before. Thus, for the second year in a row, Russia remains the No. 1 market for the BMW Group in terms of global sales growth. SUV models have more than 60% of sales.
