Editor's Overview

The BMW 3 Series lineup rounds out this year with the introduction of the high-performance 2015 BMW M3. Add that model to the existing lineup of sedans, wagons, and hatchbacks, and you have the yardstick for the class. Engines range from a choice of 4-cylinders to a diesel, a hybrid, and two 6-cylinders, including the 425-horsepower M3.

Structure > Frame And Members Sep 8, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 8, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V653000
Summary:
BMW North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 BMW M2 Coupe vehicles, 2015-2017 M3 Sedan vehicles and 2015-2016 M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible vehicles. During servicing of the rear differential for a prior service action, the rear sub-frame bolts may have been reused instead of being replaced. Reuse of the existing bolts may cause the bolts to loosen.
Consequence:
Loose rear sub-frame bolts may adversely affect vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear sub-frame bolts with new bolts, free of charge. The recall began on November 3, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
Power Train > Driveline > Driveshaft Nov 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V782000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 M3 Sedan vehicles manufactured May 30, 2015, to September 2, 2015, 2016 M4 Coupe vehicles manufactured July 3, 2015, to September 11, 2015, and 2015-2016 M4 Convertible vehicles manufactured May 29, 2015, to August 4, 2015. The affected vehicles have a driveshaft with a slip-joint that may not have been filled with grease. As a result, the slip-joint may fail over time.
Consequence:
If the slip-joint fails, there would be a loss of power to the rear axle and therefore the vehicle would stop moving, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driveshaft, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on January 14, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
