Editor's Overview

The 2016 BMW 5 Series luxury sports sedan continues as the industry’s standard-bearer. You can find similar levels of luxury in an Audi A6 or a Lexus GS, but neither can match what the 5 Series dishes up on the street. In short, the 5 Series is the sports sedan others desperately try to emulate, but seldom do.

Seats > Mid/rear Assembly Oct 29, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 29, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V718000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2016 528i, 528i xDrive, 535i, 535i xDrive, 535d xDrive, M5, 550i, 550i xDrive, and 535d sedans. The affected vehicles have an inboard lower anchor for child restraints on the left rear seat that may have been bent downwards, preventing the child seat from fully engaging both lower anchors. As such, these vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems."
Consequence:
If the child seat is not properly attached to the lower anchors, it can increase the child's risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair the inboard lower anchor on the left rear seat, free of charge. The recall began on December 28, 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
