German carmaker BMW has issued a stop-delivery order on a number of cars made by the M division along with the 5 and 6 Series cars so that the rear differential can be replaced.
The notice on the cars which include the M2, M3, M4 and M5 along with units of the 5 Series sedan and the 6 Series coupe. All the affected cars were produced between May 12 and July 4, 2016.
According to bimmerpost.com who put up the notice, when BMW first put up the notice, only 202 vehicles were affected but the site now claims that the number has since increased to 3,800 cars.
The notice does not state what is wrong with the affected rear differentials but it has stated that they are not repairable and thus will have to be replaced with brand new ones instead.
This is not the first recall order from BMW this year as the German carmaker has recalled over a million vehicles including over 800,000 vehicles which were recalled for an issue with their Takata supplied airbags and over 200,000 vehicles which were recalled for an issue with their ISOFIX child seat mounts.
