"Improperly drilled holes within the dynamic stability control hydraulic unit may restrict one or more pistons, impairing the DSC functions, including braking," NHTSA said in its recall summary." Impaired DSC functionality may negatively impact vehicle handling and braking, and increase the risk of a crash."
A BMW spokesman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the recall.
The affected i8s were built from May 29, 2015 to June 5, 2015.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their dealer. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
