In order to ensure BMW customer safety, Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC) made a public announcement to recall certain models for free technical upgrades.

In compliance with BMW's global commitment to road-user safety, Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the official local importer and distributor of BMW, decides to recall certain BMW models for "technical upgrades." 

These upgrades will be applicable to BMW year models from 1999 to 2016, due to possible problems with the airbags and ISOFIX systems. The models which are affected by the airbag issue are the 1999 to 2004 BMW 3 series, 2002 to 2003 BMW 5 series, and 2003 to 2004 BMW X5. For cases of the problem with ISOFIX systems, the recall includes the 2010 to 2016 BMW X3 and 2014 to 2016 BMW X4.

In terms of ISOFIX systems, there possibly is an issue with the rear seat fixing brackets of some models not having enough strength to sustain dynamic stress. The matter with the airbag involves gas generators that may propel metal fragments when the airbags in the front are deployed.

“Taking these preventive measures on the airbag and ISOFIX systems will enable older BMW models to be in-step with today’s premium automobile standards. Through this public announcement, we urge all owners of the possibly affected models to have certified BMW technicians inspect and expertly service their vehicles,” said ACC President Maricar Parco.
