BMW is performing a recall on various E65 and E66 chassis 7-Series models, to include; 745i, 745Li, 750i, 750Li, 760i, 760Li for models years 2005 through 2007 with the Comfort Access and Soft Close options. Affected models were produced from 8/23/2004 through 9/3/2007. A potential problem in the software for these automatic door closing functions may cause the doors to appear to be properly closed, when in fact they may not be, and can open. The repair is to update the applicable software for these systems.
According to the recall:
“The door may unexpectedly open due to road or driving conditions or occupant contact with the door. The sudden opening may result in occupant ejection or increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.”
The recall is scheduled to begin during November 2012. Owners of affected vehicles are being notified by BMW. Further information can be obtained by contacting BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417.
