BMW Recalls 1 Series for Fire Concerns


BMW has halted deliveries and placed a recall on all 2008-2011 model year 1 Series models due to the risk of a fire in an accident. The issue is related to insufficient space between the seat belt tensioners in the B-pillar and the insulation surrounding those parts. BMW is worried that in the case of a crash, the insulation could overheat and a fire could occur.

As a result, dealers have been ordered not to deliver an 1 Series models built from January to May of this year, and a recall is set to go into effect.

Owners will be notified and will be asked to bring their cars in for service to fix the issue. Those with questions can contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.

That would be one nasty fender bender. Walk out to exchange insurance info and realize that your shirt is on fire as if your car.
