The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with an air bag inflator that was not assembled correctly. This could cause failure of the the air bag to deploy properly in the event of an accident.
Improper deployment in the event of a crash could increase the risk of injury to the passengers and driver.
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger side air bag, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
