2015 BMW M6 recall

BMW Recall : Inadequately Welded Driveshaft May Fracture

2015 BMW M6

Due to the improper weld, the driveshaft may fracture and fail, causing loss of drive to the rear wheels and a loss of propulsion. Additionally, if the car is turned off and exited without the parking brake applied, the car may roll. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
