BMW halts delivery of several M cars for rear differential problem

BMW issued a stop-delivery order on 202 cars this week. The affected vehicles include the M2, M3, M4, M5, and 5 and 6 Series models. They were produced between May 12 and July 4, 2016. According to a service bulletin by BMW, which was published on Bimmerpost, the affected vehicles will need a new rear differential. The bulletin doesn't state what's wrong with the rear differentials, and a BMW spokesman did not have immediate comment on the issue.

BMW will update the bulletin with more details on warranty information and repair instructions as they become available. Owners can contact BMW to find out if they're affected.

BMW has issued several recalls this year. Just last month, the automaker recalled more than 200,000 SUVs for lower child-seat anchor bars, as well as potential damage and failure to the universal join on the front driveshaft. In February, BMW recalled 840,000 vehicles to replace faulty Takata airbags, while 6,110 units of the 2016 7 Series were added to the same recall in April.
