BMW Deflates with their latest Recall
BMW is recalling about 600k 3-series and M3 models from 2000 to 2006 due to an airbag defect in the passenger side that could produce internal pressure, causing the inflator to rupture on deployment. BMW reports that in the event of a crash, metal fragments could injure the passenger.

BMW will be notifying dealers and owners in August about the recall, and replacement will begin in October. Takata, the same airbag supplier responsible for Subaru's latest recall last week is responsible for this as well.
