Editor's Overview

The BMW 7 Series has its first major redesign in seven years, and it promises improvements to the heralded Ultimate Driving Machine. The Active Hybrid has been dropped, but a fuel-sipping plug-in hybrid is coming later in 2016.

BMW are status symbols. They look nice, and are in style for 2 years.

Two hundred and fifty five horsepower. However, when you need to replace a part, you will hate it. You will have to replace a part, too. Beamers are made with cheap parts.

Report Receipt Date:
Mar 24, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V173000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 740Li, 750Li, and 750Lxi vehicles manufactured July 1, 2015, to December 11, 2015. The affected vehicles have an air bag control module that may randomly reset due to an electrical short circuit as a result of residual metallic particles from the manufacturing process.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash while the air bag module is resetting, the air bags may not deploy, increasing the risk of occupant injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the air bag control module, free of charge. The recall began on July 11, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
