Defective Brake System Leads to BMW Recall

BMW of North America, LLC is recalling certain 2019-2021 vehicles due to a potential defective brake-boost and anti-lock braking system (ABS).

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) Part 573 Safety Recall Report 21V-062, “During supplier production, a component (rotor and shaft) within the system may not have been welded to specifications. During a hard (emergency) braking maneuver, the rotor and shaft could separate, which could lead to a reduction in braking assistance (brake boost), and the Antilock Brake System (ABS) function would no longer be available.”
