Recall

Even Futuristic Cars Like The BMW i8 Get Recalled

At least it’s not too serious.

The futuristic BMW i8 not only looks like a gem, it also has the performance to give a purpose-built sports car a run for its money. From where we’re sitting the i8 has very few faults, but that doesn’t mean the gorgeous sports car is faultless. BMW has just issued a recall for 16 examples of the 2015 i8 with production dates between May 29, 2015 and June 5, 2015. So what's wrong with the sports car? The issue lies within the sports car’s dynamic stability control hydraulic unit, which could lead to an accident.

Apparently, the i8’s dynamic stability control hydraulic unit has improperly drilled holes that could restrict the movement of one of the part’s pistons. This could affect the DSC’s control over the car’s braking. So far, no injuries have been reported. BMW dealerships will check the vehicle’s DSC hydraulic unit and replace the component if necessary. The automaker plans to start the recall on February 10. This isn’t the first time BMW has recalled the i8, but this time the fix seems to be relatively simple.
