VIN (Vehicle identification number)

What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing fault in the hydraulic unit brake booster, panic braking could cause loss of brake power assistance and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) without prior warning. Although the electronic brake force distribution function is maintained, the loss of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) may result in reduced braking performance.

What are the hazards?

The reduction in breaking performance could increase the risk of an accident and injury to vehicle occupants or other road users. In the event of a serious accident, this may result in death.

What should consumers do?

BMW will contact all affected owners. Consumers can contact an authorised BMW Service partner, or call the BMW Group Customer Interaction Centre on 1800 813 299 to arrange inspection and repair.

Consumers can also contact BMW Group Australia via the BMW Group Australia website: https://www.bmw.com.au

For further information, consumers can go to the BMW Group Australia website, and using either their vehicle's VIN or chassis number, check to see if their vehicle has an outstanding Technical Action, or an outstanding safety recall.
