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.
