One of the world’s safest cars is being recalled

West Palm Beach, Florida ( – Headline News) –BMW has just announced that there is a slight defect in the passenger seat airbag deployment (specifically the passenger airbag seat sensor mat.) U.S. traffic safety regulators referred to 200,000 vehicles as having airbag problems, therefore the company is recalling 150,000 of its vehicles including the 2006 3-Series, 2004 through 2006 5-Series, and 2004 through 2006 X3 vehicles. A recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that the airbags my not deploy “even if a sufficiently severe accident would occur.” Fortunately, there have been no reported accidents or injuries due to this problem. Owners of these models are advised to immediately contact their local BMW dealership to obtain an airbag sensor replacement.
