New Visibility Recall Might Impact Your Shop

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a new recall. More than 250,000 BMW of North America (BMW) models are being recalled. The NHTSA states the issue may affect driver visibility and increase the risk for an accident.

According to the administration, select BMW’s back-up camera and display settings can be adjusted such that the rear view image is no longer visible and the system will retain that setting the next time the vehicle is placed in reverse.

“As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, ‘Rearview Mirrors,’” the administration noted.

Some of the recalled models include:

  • 2018 540d,
  • 2018-2020 530i,
  • 530i xDrive,
  • 530e xDrive,
  • X3 sDrive,
  • X3 xDrive,
  • 2019-2020 X4 xDrive,
  • X4 M40i,
  • X4 M,
  • X7 xDrive,
  • X7 M50i,
  • 740Li,
  • 740Li xDrive,
  • 750Li,
  • 2018-2019 640i xDrive Gran Turismo, and
  • 2020 Toyota Supra vehicles.

Glass shop representatives working on the recalled models can assure their customers that they will update the back-up camera software, free of charge. According to NHTSA, the recall is expected to begin November 19, 2019.
