A luxury automaker is issuing a recall for cars with defective airbags.

BMW of North America is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom vehicles. The affected models have left and right side curtain airbags that may not been manufactured properly.

As a result of the improper manufacturing, the airbags may not position themselves as intended during deployment, increasing the risk of occupant injury in the event of a vehicle crash.

About 13 Rolls-Royce Phantoms are subject to this recall.

Rolls-Royce will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the side curtain airbags, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 11, 2016.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 367-6372.
