DELIVERY STOP & RECALL 17V-XXX: I3 FRONTAL IMPACT PERFORMANCE MODEL I01 (i3 BEV and REx) SITUATION BMW Group is conducting a Voluntary Non-Compliance Recall (effective November 16, 2017) on all Model Year 2014-2018 BMW i3 vehicles (including BEV and REx) produced from start-of-production through November 14, 2017. The issue involves a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard with respect to frontal impact performance. Recent testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicated that a limit for one of many criteria was marginally exceeded. Approximately 30,542 vehicles are affected by this delivery stop / recall, consisting of 1,159 in dealer inventory and 29,383 retailed. All vehicles in the pipeline are also on hold.A repair solution is under development. This bulletin will be updated with repair instructions and warranty information when it becomes available.
This is obviously the US voluntary recall notice. I'm not sure how or if this will be handled outside of the US.
