    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 30, 2015
    • Vehicles Affected: 7,162

    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.

    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.
