BMW has decided to recall close to 840,000 cars and Sports Activity Vehicles equipped with the Takata PSDI-5 driver side front airbags.

The car maker has added that these vehicles have Takata's PSDI-5 driver side airbag inflators and the parts could rupture in a crash. No injuries or deaths have been reported and none of these vehicles have been a part of the earlier Takata-related airbag recalls. Owners of these vehicles will be contacted to advise them of the recall and as soon as the replacement parts are available, they will receive further communication with instructions on how to proceed with the same. Alternatively, owners can also contact BMW customer service for information.

This recall comes close after earlier announcements in late January that automakers need to repair about five million vehicles. Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Ford, Mazda, and Honda have already announced recalls due to this.

The vehicles include:

1 Series Coupe (incl. 1M) built between 2008–2013

1 Series Convertible between 2008–2013

3 Series Sedan (incl. M3) between 2008–2013
