2014 BMW X5 Recalled for Faulty Child Locks
The 2014 BMW X5 is being recalled for an issue with its child safety locks.
According to NHTSA documents, a total of 6,400 X5 SUVs are being recalled because the child safety locks could disengage. In vehicles affected by the recall, the inside door handle might still open the door despite the child lock being engaged because the lock mechanism might not have been manufactured to the correct tolerance.
