bmw m3 and bmw m4


Η BMW ανακοίνωσε την ανάκληση μόλις 42 M3 και M4 (Coupe και Convertible) παραγωγής από Μάιο του 2015 έως και τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2015. Η ανάκληση αφορά τις συγκεκριμένες BMW που πουλήθηκαν στην αγορά της Βορείου Αμερικής, στις οποίες ο άξονας μετάδοσης δεν έχει λιπανθεί σωστά με γράσο, κάτι που ενδεχομένως θα οδηγήσει σε απώλεια δύναμης στον πίσω άξονα, αλλά και να αυξήσει τις πιθανότητες ενός ατυχήματος.

Details

Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC

SUMMARY: BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 M3 Sedan vehicles manufactured May 30, 2015, to September 2, 2015, 2016 M4 Coupe vehicles manufactured July 3, 2015, to September 11, 2015, and 2015-2016 M4 Convertible vehicles manufactured May 29, 2015, to August 4, 2015. The affected vehicles have a driveshaft with a slip-joint that may not have been filled with grease. As a result, the slip-joint may fail over time.

CONSEQUENCE: If the slip-joint fails, there would be a loss of power to the rear axle and therefore the vehicle would stop moving, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driveshaft, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 8, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
