BMW Recalling 7,600 2012 3-Series Vehicles

May 08, 2012

WASHINGTON – BMW of North America LLC is recalling 7,600 2012 model-year 3-Series vehicles in the U.S. because their front-seat head restraints exceed the downward movement limit of 25mm in the highest position. As a result, these head restraints fail to comply with all federal safety standards, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

Vehicles covered by the recall were all manufactured from Oct. 19, 2011 through March 18, 2012.

To remedy the problem, BMW dealers will attach a clamp to the front-seat head restraint posts. There will be no charge for this service.

The safety recall is set to begin this month. BMW can be reached at (800) 525-7417.
