BMW Recall Lookup

In 2017, BMW has its biggest recall involving 1.4 million cars and SUVs due to a fire risk. The recall includes 504,000 vehicles sold in the United States (the largest ever recall for BMW in the United States). Even when vehicles are unattended, wiring for the heating and air conditioning system can overheat and cause connectors to melt. Car owners are advised to park their vehicles outdoors until they’re repaired.

BMW will notify owners of the affected vehicles to bring in their cars to have them fixed. Authorized dealers will replace the wiring and connectors for free. For further information, contact BMW Customer Relations at 1-800-831-1117 or email bmwgenius@bmwusa.com.
