BMW Recalling & Halting Sales of the US 1 Series

According to Consumer Reports and Cars.com BMW is recalling every 1 Series ever sold in the US due to a seat belt pretensioner that could ignite. Apparently the NHTSA has deemed that the pretensioner is too close to the sound insulation materials in the B-pillar and thus could lead to fire.

Because BMW doesn ‘t have a fix yet for this issue they have halted sales of the 1 Series in the US market. The fix should be coming very soon and rest assured engineers are working on it as we speak.

    As cmac stated there is and always was a fix for this involving trimming the insulation. It’s a pretty easy fix at that.
