BMW Recall: Let Us Check Your VIN Now

What is a VIN?


VIN stands for "Vehicle Identification Number" and is unique to your BMW. This mix of seventeen letters and numbers is specific to your vehicle and defines its engine size, body style, model year, transmission type, color, etc. All vehicles newer than 1980 have a VIN.

Where can I find my VIN?


You can find your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is on a small, metal plate that is attached to the driver's side of the dashboard towards the top. This small, metal tag is designed to remain visible through the windshield for easy viewing. Every car is required to have one of these located in that place and it is illegal to remove or change this plate. If the tag is missing, chances are the vehicle has been repaired, or more likely, stolen.
BMW Air Bag Recall FAQs

How do I know whether my car is affected by the recall?


There are several ways to check whether your specific car is affected. You'll need your vehicle identification number, VIN, found in the lower driver-side corner of the windshield (observable from outside the vehicle), as well as on your registration and insurance documents. Punch that number into NHTSA's online VIN-lookup tool. If your vehicle is affected, the site will tell you so. NHTSA also has a list of vehicles available for a quick review, and the manufacturers have ownership sections on their websites for such information. Or you can call any franchised dealer for your car brand.

How important is that I respond to the recall?


All recalls, by definition, are concerned with safety and should be treated seriously. As with all recalls, we recommend having the work performed as soon as parts are available and the service can be scheduled. 

I'm worried about driving, what should I do until the fix is made?


If you use the VIN-lookup tool and it says that the problem involves the driver's side, you should do what you can to minimize your risk. If possible, consider:
  • Minimizing your driving.
  • Carpooling with someone whose vehicle is not affected by the recall.
  • Utilizing public transportation.
  • Renting a car.
Renting a car until yours is repaired can prove expensive and ultimately might not be the ideal solution. Asking your dealer whether they will provide one, or a loaner vehicle might be worth a try if it accomplishes nothing else than putting some pressure on the manufacturer. If you do get a rental car, as with any new vehicle or rental, take some time to familiarize yourself with its operation before driving.

Should I expect to pay any money to get the recall fix?


Repairs conducted under the recall are free, but unrelated problems discovered during the service may not be.
