Manufacturer BMW of North America, LLC


Potential Number of Units Affected 50,404



BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2013-2018 328d, 328d xDrive, 2014-2018 328d Sports Wagon, 328d xDrive Sports Wagon, 2014-2016 535d, 535d xDrive, 2015 740Ld xDrive, 2015-2017 X3 xDrive28d SAV, and 2014-2017 X5 xDrive35d SAV diesel vehicles equipped with an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) module with an integrated cooler.

Dealers will replace the EGR cooler and inspect the intake manifold, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. This recall includes all vehicles previously recalled under 18V-755. Vehicles previously recalled under 18V-755 will need to have the new remedy performed for this recall. An interim owner notification letter was mailed on January 18, 2022. The remedy is expected to be available in June 2022. Owner notification letters were mailed on July 6, 2022. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

Chronology :

Please refer to BMW’s October 25, 2018 Part 573 report to which assigned Recall ID 18V-755.

After the implementation of 18V-755, the field continued to be monitored for any further actions, if warranted.

After the implementation of 18V-755, foreign recall 20F-080 was implemented. However, substantially similar vehicles in the US had the improved EGR module which appeared to be effective and, therefore, no US efforts were warranted.]

After continuous field monitoring, and a comprehensive review of field data, it was indicated that the EGR cooler may not be sufficiently robust over the vehicle’s lifetime. The field data indicated that there was a limited thermal event on a 4-cylinder and a 6-cylinder vehicle which occurred after these vehicles had the 18V-755 recall performed. Therefore, it was decided to readdress this issue and replace the EGR module on all potentially affected vehicles with an improved cooler designed and produced by a new EGR cooler supplier.

BMW vehicle assembly records were reviewed to determine the number and production range of potentially affected vehicles.

On November 12, 2021, in an abundance of caution, BMW decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

BMW has not received any reports, nor is BMW otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.
