Westwood, NJ – July 23, 2022 – BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY) is recalling 6,930 vehicles whose display does not show critical safety information while being parked by a valet. This increases the risk of a crash.
The following vehicles are included in this recall:
- 2022 – 2023 BMW iX xDrive40
- 2022 – 2023 BMW iX xDrive50
- 2022 – 2023 BMW iX M60
- 2022 BMW i4 eDrive40
- 2022 BMW i4 M50
The affected vehicles are those equipped with a BMW hybrid electric powertrain and have a central information display (CID) that shows important safety information. The recalled vehicles’ CID may fail to show safety warnings when in valet parking mode due to a software error.
Valet parking mode is a setting that protects the main driver’s private information and can lock the tailgate when someone else is driving, such as when a valet is parking the vehicle.
If the driver cannot see warning lights or messages that should appear on the display, the risk of a crash increases.
