December 15, 2015

BMW is performing a recall on various M3 and M4 models from model year 2015 through 2016.  The driveshaft slip-joint may fail due to lack of grease

Affected models:

F83 M4 Convertibles manufactured May 29, 2015 through August 4, 2015

According to the recall:

“If the slip-joint fails, there would be a loss of power to the rear axle and therefore the vehicle would stop moving, increasing the risk of a crash. ”

BMW will inspect the driveshaft and replace if necessary.
