Recall: 2014 BMW X5 Soft Close Automatic Door Feature

Certain 2014 BMW X5 crossovers are being recalled for an issue with the Soft Close Automatic (SCA) feature.

The Problem: In certain 2014 BMW X5 models equipped with the optional SCA feature, the rear side door lock mechanisms may have not been built to proper tolerances. If that happens, the child safety lock might disengage and the door could open on the second pull of the inside door handle while the vehicle is in motion, which could increase the risk of injury.
The Fix: BMW will notify owners of potentially affected vehicles to bring their vehicle to a dealer to be inspected and have affected door locks replaced for free. Concerned owners can contact the automaker at 1-800-525-7417.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Potentially affected vehicles include 2014 BMW X5 models built from December 12, 2013 through March 10, 2014. The automaker didn’t specify the number of vehicles included in the recall.
