2015 BMW M5, M6 Recalled Over Driveshaft Failures

BMW is calling back two of its performance models, the 2015 M5 and M6, over an issue with the driveshaft. 

In the affected models, which includes the M6 Gran Coupe and Convertible, a weld on the driveshaft can fracture, leading to driveshaft failure. BMW received two reports of driveshaft failure about one year ago, while a third more recent failure prompted an investigation.

BMW engineers concluded that the failures likely occurred between 35 mph to 50 mph, specifically when the car shifts from second to third.

BMW technicians will inspect the driveshaft and replace it if a faulty weld is found.
