BMW has issued a recall for 11 of its 2019-2020 models over a manufacturing fault in the brake booster unit, leading to possible ABS failure under hard braking.

It says the brake force distribution system will still operate as per usual, but the loss of ABS and brake power assistance could result in an overall loss of braking performance.

Despite several models being affected, only 49 units are on the recall list, with the cars being sold between July 27, 2019, and November 23, 2020.

The models under recall are:

  • BMW F92 M8 Coupe
  • BMW F93 M8 Sedan
  • BMW F95 X5 M Wagon
  • BMW G05 X5 Wagon
  • BMW G06 X6 Sedan
  • BMW G07 X7 Wagon
  • BMW G11 7 Series Sedan
  • BMW G14 8 Series Convertible
  • BMW G15 8 Series Coupe
  • BMW G80 M3 Sedan
  • BMW G82 M4 Coupe 

BMW is currently contacting affected owners and encouraging anyone who believes their vehicle may be affected to contact the BMW Group Customer Interaction Centre on 1800 813 299 or their nearest dealer.

Owners can check to see whether their vehicle is under recall through BMW or on a list on VINs here.
