BMW is expanding a recall of its most popular models to fix an airbag problem that is hitting much of the global auto industry.
The German carmaker says it will recall 1.6m 3 Series cars from model years 2000 to 2006 across the world, including 574,000 in the US.
The company said on Wednesday that it is a precaution because other manufacturers using similar systems have reported problems.
