BMW Recalling Some 3 Series Sedans – Car Pro News

BMW-Recalling-Some-3-Series-Sedans

BMW is recalling 7,600 of its 3 Series sedans for front-seat head restraints that can move downward more than the law allows when they are adjusted to the highest position.

Federal regs limit potential downward movement to 25 mm (just shy of an inch).

The recall covers 2012-model 3 Series cars built from last Oct. 19 through March 18 this year (your car’s build date is on the plate on the driver’s door opening).

If the head restraint is fully extended, it “may unexpectedly move down slightly” in a crash, increasing risk of injury, according to documents on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Owners will be notified this month. Dealers will put a clamp on the restraint to restrain its range of adjustment
