The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that all units of the 2011 1-Series ActiveE passenger vehicles have been discovered to have an issue with the sealing of the main drivetrain housing assembly.
An insufficient sealing of this component could, over time, damage the connection between the transmission and the electric motor due to a lack of grease lubrication. According to the federal agency, this issue could intensify with time of use and wear the component, increasing the risk of an accident. To prevent accidents and keep car owners and their passengers safe, BMW decided to issue this recall promptly with the help of the federal agency.
Affected consumers are being warned of the risks associated with these vehicles by the company. All defective vehicles will be fully inspected and repaired for free.
It’s important that consumers are aware that recalled vehicles could be dangerous to drivers and occupants. Stay on top of all recall announcements and avoid getting hurt by responding to any recall that affects you or your loved ones in a prompt manner.
