— BMW airbag problems have caused a recall of more than 800 model year 2023 BMW 230i, 230i XDrive, M240i and M240i xDrive vehicles.
BMW says the recall is necessary because the second-row seat backrest cover panels for the side airbags may break when the airbags deploy.
This can cause an increased chance of injuries to the second-row seat occupants.
BMW dealerships will replace the rear seat backrest side airbag cover panels.
