BMW Recalling 200,000 airbags

http://money.cnn.com/2008/08/13/news...ex.htm?cnn=yes

WASHINGTON (AP) -- BMW AG is recalling 200,000 vehicles over concerns that the front passenger air bag may not deploy in a crash.

The German automaker says the recall involves the 2006 3 Series, the 2004-2006 5 Series, and the 2004-2006 X3 compact sport utility vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its Web site Wednesday that small cracks could develop in a seat detection mat and lead to the front passenger air bags to be deactivated.

It would also turn on the passenger air bag "on-off" light. NHTSA says the head protection system would not be affected.

The company said last month there had been no injuries or accidents tied to the problem.
