BMW 1-Series sales halted due to fire risk
BMW has told its dealers to hold delivery on the 1-Series models produced between January 2010 and May 2010 because of a fire risk until a recall can be performed, according to a report from Consumer Reports.
The document that was obtained by Consumer Reports states that there is insufficient clearance between the B-pillar and the seat belt tensions, which in the event of a crash, could result in friction that might cause a fire.
In addition to the models recalled, certain 2008-2011 1-Series coupes could be affected as well. Owners can contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417 for more details and to see if they need to get their vehicle checked.
