RECALL Subject : Bent Left Rear Seat Inboard Anchor/FMVSS 225

Report Receipt Date: OCT 30, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V718000
Component(s): CHILD SEAT , SEATS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,162


Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC


SUMMARY:

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 528i, 528i xDrive, 535i, 535i xDrive, 535d xDrive, M5, 550i, 550i xDrive, and 535d sedans. The affected vehicles have an inboard lower anchor for child restraints on the left rear seat that may have been bent downwards, preventing the child seat from fully engaging both lower anchors. As such, these vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the child seat is not properly attached to the lower anchors, it can increase the child's risk of injury in the event of a crash.
REMEDY:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair the inboard lower anchor on the left rear seat, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 24, 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
