The first recall issued on the BMW 7 Series this week affects 2,087 units from 2004 to 2008 that are equipped with the Comfort Access option. If the driver depresses the start-stop button multiple times in rapid succession, the transmission could shift to Neutral (N) instead of Park (P). If the driver leaves the vehicle without engaging the parking brake, a sufficient slope could cause the vehicle to roll away, possibly leading to damage or injuries.
The second recall on the BMW 7 Series affects 416 units from 2004 to 2007 that are equipped with the Comfort Access option. The doors may not latch correctly and could open while the car is underway.
In both cases, BMW Canada dealers will reprogram the Central Gateway Control Module with updated software. Source: Transports Canada
