Wait! Your Kids May Not Be Safe in the BMW X5!

Recall

Faulty child lock causing country-wide recall.

BMW has concerns over the child safety locks in the 2014 X5, and is thus recalling 6,400 units built between December 12, 2013 and March 10, 2014. Apparently there’s a chance that if set, the child safety lock will deactivate without warning on models with the automatic soft-closing option. According to the press release, “The rear side door lock mechanisms may not have been manufactured to correct tolerances and when the inside door handle is pulled, the previously engaged child safety lock can disengage.”

At that point, two tugs of the door handle from the inside will open the door – whether the car is moving or otherwise. BMW is in the midst of notifying owners of affected vehicles and will naturally foot the bill for any necessary repairs.
