German automaker BMW intends to recall around 1.6 million cars worldwide to replace passenger-side front airbags due to potential problems involving rupturing inflators, BMW said in a statement on Wednesday. The recall affects 3-Series vehicles produced between May 1999 and August 2006. Problems with similar airbag systems from the same supplier used by BMW occurred in rare cases, although there have been no known problems involving BMW vehicles, the company said in a statement on its website.
