12 If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause
130 injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying BMW of North America, LLC.

safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.
