Report Date:
August 12, 2019
Campaign Number:

Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2020 BMW 745e xDrive vehicles.

Consequence Summary:
Without an audible warning, the driver may forget to buckle the seat belt, increasing their risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Corrective Summary:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will update the ECU software, free of charge. The recall began October 11, 2019. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
