LONDON, June 23. /ITAR-TASS/. German car giant BMW intends to recall over 100,000 cars worldwide due to failure in the system of airbags produced by Japanese company Takata, Reuters news agency reports.

The issue has been found in all vehicles produced from 2002.

The company’s experts believe the system may inflate by itself, in particular, in countries with a humid climate, due to poorly protected contacts. At risk are all vehicles of the E46 3-series generation produced between 2002 and 2006.

Earlier this week, Honda and Toyota announced about the recall of nearly 3 million cars due failure of airbags produced by the same manufacturer.

The last time BMW recalled cars in autumn and winter of 2013. Thus, October 1, 2013, about 176,000 vehicles were recalled due to a break system failure. The case in hand was disrepair of the distribution shaft, which may lead to a partial failure of the brake booster.
