While the 2022 BMW X1 has not been affected by any recalls, 2021 models were subject to one recall for a passenger seat belt that may malfunction. The 2020 X1 was also only subject to one recall - for airbags that may not deploy in a rollover crash. The 2019 model suffered from three recalls, so it seems the kinks have been ironed out, however, and reliability is supported by a 75 out of 100 ranking from J.D.
