Recall Alert : BMW 2016-2017 MINI Clubman

RECALL Subject : Side Air Bag may Deploy Improperly/FMVSS 226

Report Receipt Date: JUL 25, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V553000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,810


Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC

SUMMARY:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 MINI Clubman vehicles manufactured August 19, 2015, through July 14, 2016. The side curtain air bags for the front seat occupants may deploy in the intended positions in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 226, "Ejection Mitigation."
CONSEQUENCE:
If a side curtain air bag does not inflate as intended in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of injury to the front seat occupants.
REMEDY:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will modify the driver and passenger side curtain air bag covers, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 12, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at [email protected].
