BMW Australia is recalling 245 examples of its all-electric iX SUV due to a software issue with the airbag control unit.
This recall affects iX models sold between 2021 and 2022, meaning all of them since the vehicle only hit the market last year.
“Due to a software issue with the airbag control unit, the airbag warning lamp and warning message may not be illuminated in the instrument cluster as intended,” says the company in its recall notice.
“If this occurs the vehicle occupants may not be alerted to the potential failure of these systems.”
If you own an affected vehicle, BMW will contact you to have your vehicle’s airbag control unit software updated free of charge.
If you have any further questions you can contact the BMW Australia Recall Hotline on 1800 243 675.
