BMW of North America is recalling 17,008 model year 2018 BMW X3 xDrive30i and X3 M40i vehicles. The rear spoiler may not have been properly attached during assembly, or may be missing screws, possibly causing the spoiler to detach while the vehicle is being driven.

If the spoiler detaches while the vehicle is being driven, it can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the spoiler, correcting its attachment as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 1, 2018.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
