Recall Alert : 2015 BMW M5 Sedans

RECALL Subject : Inadequately Welded Driveshaft may Fracture

Report Receipt Date: JUL 19, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V540000
Component(s): POWER TRAIN
Potential Number of Units Affected: 956


Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC

SUMMARY:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015 BMW M5 sedans manufactured September 4, 2014, through December 4, 2014, 2015 M6 coupes manufactured September 3, 2014, through December 3, 2014, 2015 M6 convertibles manufactured September 8, 2014, through December 4, 2014, and 2015 M6 Gran Coupe vehicles manufactured September3, 2014, through December 4, 2014. The affected vehicles have a driveshaft that may have been inadequately welded during manufacturing.
CONSEQUENCE:
Due to the improper weld, the driveshaft may fracture and fail, causing loss of drive to the rear wheels and a loss of propulsion. Additionally, if the car is turned off and exited without the parking brake applied, the car may roll. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the driveshaft, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on September 6, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
