Si siente una vibración inusual en el volante o si tiene dificultades para controlar el vehículo, es posible que tenga ese problema. Si esto ocurre, aléjese con cuidado del tránsito y deténgase en un lugar seguro lo antes posible. Todos los ocupantes deben salir del vehículo con cuidado y trasladarse a un lugar seguro lejos del tránsito. No siga conduciendo el vehículo. Comuníquese de inmediato con BMW Roadside Assistance (Asistencia en la carretera de BMW) llamando al 1-800-332-4269 para que le lleven el vehículo al centro autorizado de BMW más cercano.

Si usted no es la única persona que conduce ese vehículo, comparta esta importante información con todos los demás conductores y pasajeros.

 

¿Qué hará BMW?

Se revisará la barra de acoplamiento del mecanismo de dirección y, si es necesario, se la reemplazará sin cargo, lo que podría llevar aproximadamente dos horas.

 

¿Qué ocurre si no soy el propietario actual de este vehículo?

Puede actualizar la información de la titularidad del vehículo o su información de contacto completando la tarjeta con respuesta postal paga adjunta o registrándose en https://www.bmwusa.com/myBMW. Si usted es arrendador del vehículo, las reglamentaciones federales exigen que reenvíe este aviso a su arrendatario en un plazo de diez días. 

 

¿Qué debo hacer si tengo alguna pregunta o algún problema?

Para ver las últimas actualizaciones de esta retirada, visite www.bmwusa.com/recall. Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre esta retirada, comuníquese con el centro autorizado de BMW. Si necesita asistencia adicional, comuníquese con el BMW Customer Relations and Services (Servicio de Atención al Cliente de BMW) llamando al 1-800-525-7417 o por correo electrónico a CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

Si el centro de BMW no puede resolver el defecto sin cargo o en un plazo razonable, puede notificar al administrador de la National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (Administración Nacional de Seguridad de Tránsito en Carreteras), 1200 New Jersey Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20590, llamar a la Vehicle Safety Hotline (Línea gratuita directa de seguridad vehicular) al 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153) o visitar https://www.safercar.gov.
