Do not drive: 90,000 BMW automobiles with faulty Takata parts are subject to an airbag recall.

BMW is recalling 90,000 damaged cars and SUVs that include Takata airbags and is advising owners not to drive them until the faulty equipment has been replaced.

According to a statement on the automaker’s website, “recently, vehicles from 19 different automakers were recalled to replace driver and passenger airbags made by auto parts supplier Takata that may explode and cause serious injury or death,”

According to the automaker, vehicles from 2000 through 2015 of BMW may be impacted.

BMW reportedly issued a “Do Not Drive” warning on Thursday, according to the American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Do not operate any of these vehicles until this urgent, life-saving recall has been completed, the administration advised owners who still have open Takata air bag recalls, according to a statement on its website. The danger to the passengers of these 17 to 22-year-old vehicles is great.

“These are some of the oldest Takata air bags under recall and have an extremely high probability of failure during a crash,” the NHTSA noted. The metal particles thrown towards the driver’s face in the event of an inflator rupture “could kill or leave them with devastating, life-altering injuries.”
