German carmaker BMW will issue a recall for over 1,56,992 cars in China over defective child seats. The carmaker will start the recall process from September 1, 2016, and will fix the child anchors for free of cost for the affected models.
The recall is over welding problems detected in the lower anchors of the child seats, that will prevent the child seats from being secured safely. This could also raise the possibility of passengers being injured in case of an accident.
Models that will be part of the recall include 1,34,000 units of the BMW X3, made between November 2010 to April 2016, and over 22,000 units of the BMW X4 models made between the year March 2014 and April 2016.
For now, there is no information about defective child seats on BMW X3 and X4 models sold in India. However, if you think your BMW model has this defect, do report the same to us. Also, stay tuned to DriveSpark as we keep a track of BMW's progress worldwide.
