December 7, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s):
     BMW / C600 SPORT MAXI-SCOOTER 2013
Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC Report Receipt Date: DEC 03, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V556000 NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: STRUCTURE:BODY
Potential Number of Units Affected: 266
Summary:
 BMW is recalling certain model year 2013 C600 Sport Maxi-Scooters manufactured August 7, 2012, through November 20, 2012. The fasteners on the front side trim panels may have insufficient strength to retain the panels at high speeds.
Consequence:
 If the panel separates it could interfere with riding and handling of the scooter and increase the risk of a crash. The panel could also become a hazard for other road users.
Remedy:
 BMW will notify owners, and dealers will reattach the left and right front side trim panels with stronger “snap-lock” fasteners. The recall is expected to begin in January 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
Notes:
 Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
