Editor's Overview

The 2018 BMW M4 is the alter ego of the standard 4 Series, a high-performance version of the German luxury brand's luxury coupe and hardtop convertible. Formerly known as the 2-door derivatives of the M3 sedan, the M4 remains the benchmark for rivals like the Mercedes-Benz C63, Cadillac ATS-V and Lexus RC F.

The only thing I don't like is that it only comes in an automatic transmission. Otherwise I love everything else about the car.

It is an excellent vehicle, minus the monthly insurance payments which are very costly and I don't want to pay them

Seat Belts > Front Aug 15, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 15, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V507000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2018 430i, 430i xDrive, 440i, 440i xDrive, and M4 convertible vehicles. The Emergency Locking Retractors (ELR) within the front seat belt assemblies may have been produced with incompatible vehicle-sensitive locking mechanism housings.
Consequence:
If the vehicle has an incompatible vehicle-sensitive locking mechanism, the seat belt may not restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary replace, the front seat belt assemblies, free of charge. The recall began October 13, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
