BMW Australia has issued a recall of 1269 examples of (MY2018-19) F97 X3 M, F98 X4 M, G20 3 Series, and G29 Z4 models due to a potential steering rod failure.

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the steering track rods may be damaged when exposed to high temperatures and vibrational loads.

BMW says if the steering track rods are damaged or break, the vehicle will have limited steering ability and may not steer as expected.

Model Year (MY) 2018 and 2019 vehicles are affected, but these models could have been sold in the second-half of 2017. BMW Australia is contacting owners to organise inspection and repair of the defect.

BMW Australia has told CarAdvice no incidents have been reported locally.
