BMW is recalling about 189,000 X3 and X4 models in the U.S. over an issue with the child seat anchors.
According to BMW, certain European-style child seats can damage the anchor bars meant to secure the seats. This is less of a risk in the U.S., as nearly all child seats sold here feature a flexible Latch connector, which negates the problem.
Still, dealers will weld a reinforcing bracket to the lower anchor bars to make sure that damage does not occur.
The problem affects the 2011-2017 BMW X3 and the 2015-2017 X4. BMW first discovered the issue when a European customer reported the damage back in March of 2016.
The recall is expected to begin in the U.S. on July 12.
