Thousands of innocent consumers die and millions are injured every year in the United States due to various defective and dangerous products. These products have design and/or manufacturing defects or inadequate warning labels that can cause victims to suffer short or long-term injuries.
Did you hear that BMW is recalling approximately 45,000 3 Series sedans in the United States and Canada because their passenger air bags may not inflate properly?
The recall affects vehicles from the 2002 and 2003 model years. Reports indicate that the front passenger-side air bag can deploy with excessive pressure, leading to a possible rupture. If this occurs, metal fragments could strike the occupant.
As of now, BMW has had no reports of injuries. They will contact owners and replace the air bags free of charge.
