BMW North America is recalling 72 model year 2016 BMW M2 Coupe vehicles, 2015-2017 M3 Sedan vehicles, and 2015-2016 M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible vehicles.

During servicing of the rear differential for a prior service action, the rear sub-frame bolts may have been reused instead of being replaced. Reuse of the existing bolts may cause the bolts to loosen.

Loose rear sub-frame bolts may adversely affect vehicle handling and control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin October 24, 2016.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear sub-frame bolts with new bolts, free of charge.
