BMW recalls 220,000 3-series vehicles for airbag defect

BMW has announced it is recalling around 220,000 vehicles worldwide from model years 2002 and 2003, as part of a wider recall affecting airbags made by US-based supplier Takata Corp, Reuters has reported. The recall includes BMW's 3-series sedans, coupes, convertibles and station wagons. The Takata-made airbags for the front passenger seat may not inflate correctly because of a manufacturing defect in the propellant used in the airbag inflator. Takata last month said it learned of the problem from an automaker it did not identify in October 2011 after an airbag deployment in Japan.
