BMW Recalls Select M3 And M4 Models Due To Driveshaft Problem

A handful of 2015-2016 BMW M3, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible models are being recalled in the United States due to an issue with the driveshaft.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered in late November that a selection of M3s and M4s have a slip-joint in the driveshaft which hasn’t been filled with grease.

Over time, there’s a chance that the slip-joint could fail therefore resulting in a loss of power to the rear wheels, thus increasing the risk of a crash.

The models being recalled in the U.S. are M3s produced between May 30 2015 and September 2 2015, M4 Coupes manufactured July 3 2015 to September 11, 2015 and M4 Convertibles produced from May 29 2015 and August 4 2015. All told, 42 vehicles are being recalled.

The recall should start on January 8 next year with BMW replacing the driveshaft free of charge if necessary.
