More than 800 examples of the BMW X1 have been recalled in Australia, after it was found the SUV’s outer-rear seatbelts could become inoperational.

BMW Australia has recalled 833 examples of its 2022 BMW X1, following the discovery of a fault with the small SUV’s rear seatbelts due to a manufacturing fault.

The recall affects the current ‘U11’-generation X1, which arrived in BMW’s Australian showrooms from October 2022.

The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “The outer seat belts in the second row may become jammed at the bottom of the trim panels. As a result, the seat belts may not operate as intended.

“In the event of an accident if the seat belts do not operate as intended, the occupant of that seat may not receive the full protection of the seatbelt system and this could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants.”
