Defective Japenese Takata airbags recalled for BMW cars in China

This airbags recall will impact 273,000 models built by BMW’s joint venture with Chinese manufacturer Brilliance Automotive and 87,000 imported BMW cars.

Due to health safety concerns, with 20 people having died since 2013 in accidents linked to defects in Takata airbags, there has been a large global recall of approx 100 million cars from a diverse range of manufacturers.

Germany’s BMW has recalled 360,000 vehicles in China, models built between 2000-2018 each in the i, x and M series, as part of the global effort to eliminate faulty defective airbags made by Japanese supplier Takata, now defunct. The airbags will be replaced free.

Takatwa was founded in 1933, but went out of business in 2017 because of the airbag crisis.

The BMW announcement came as global carmakers gathered for the Shanghai Auto Show amid a rare sales slump in the world’s largest vehicle market.
