Driver's Exterior Rear View Mirror Incorrect For Vehicle

Recall Details

An improper driver's side exterior rear view mirror may be equipped with the vehicle, magnifying to show objects closer than they appear to be. Dealers will replace the driver's side exterior rear view mirror free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The driver's side exterior rear view mirror may not be proper for United States vehicle requirements, as they may show objects or vehicles closer than they appear. This could increase risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your BMW must be performed by a BMW dealership. BMW began notifying known owners of affected vehicles in November, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local BMW dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
