BMW X5 xDrive Recalls
The transmission of the vehicle may suddenly shift to neutral while driving because of a loose electrical ground cable. This could cause loss of vehicle control and an accident.
The fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank may have wire contacts not sufficiently crimped. This could result in a fuel leak and vehicle stalling condition. This could increase risk of a fire hazard and crash.
The driver's frontal air bag inflator may not be welded properly and may separate when the air bag deploys in an accident. This would cause metal to strike vehicle occupants, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The front drive shaft universal joint may not seal out water and debris properly, resulting in premature wear and damage to the joint. This could cause the joint to fail, resulting in the front wheels not be driven as needed. This could also damage other nearby components, as the joint detaches.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
The air bags that protect the heads of occupants during a collision may not inflate properly in an accident, increasing risk of occupant injury.
The left rear seat belt may not be attached securely to the body. This could cause the belt to not be effective securing an occupant in an accident.
The child safety door locks for the rear doors of the vehicle may not securely engage, resulting in the door being able to be opened from the inside when thought to be secure. This could result in occupant injury when a door opens unexpectedly.
The bolts that secure the housing for the internal engine timing components can loosen over time, possibly breaking. This can cause the engine to stall.
