Automaker BMW recently issued a recall of some 1.6 million older versions of 3 Series vehicles with airbags that may potentially harm passengers during deployment, Tech Times stated on July 21.
A probe conducted by BMW revealed that the airbags in the affected vehicles may burst and shoot off metal fragments due to faulty preparation in the airbag’s inflator case. Excessive force in the inflator can cause the airbags to burst during activation, which may injure the passenger in the front seat. BMW said there were no known injuries involving the affected vehicles before they issued the recall. BMW is just one of several automotive giants that have issued recalls due to concerns over faulty airbags manufactured by Takata.
