BMW has recalled 7,600 of its 3 Series sedans for front-seat head restraints that can move downward more than the law allows when they are adjusted to the highest position. Federal regulations limit potential downward movement to 25 mm (which is slightly less than an inch). The recall covers 2012-model 3 Series cars built from last Oct. 19 through March 18th of this year. The car’s build date is on the plate on the driver’s door opening. If the head restraint is fully extended, it “may unexpectedly move down slightly” in a crash, increasing risk of injury, according to documents on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. Owners were notified of the recall last month. Dealers will put a clamp on the restraint to restrain its range of adjustment.
