The recall will affect about 5079 units of BMW model. NHTSA explained that the knee airbag might not have been folded correctly during assembling which would lead to them failing to inflate and increasing the risk of the passenger or driver.

Those affected will get their airbags replaced for free. Owners will start to get notified in the next few weeks with recalls expecting to start on the 2nd of July. The fix will, of course, be free.
