BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just received my Takata airbag recall notice - my car is affected, they don't have parts in stock, and they will contact me when they do have parts in stock.

If its similar to the VANOS bolt recall, then it'll be 6 months before I get a call from the dealer.

Got mine today too. 335d, CPO/not original owner. The letter says the recall is for the driver side airbag module but I thought I'd read some threads that talked about a recall for the passenger seat. In fact, that's what I was expecting since the passenger airbag light near the dome light comes on and off randomly, but the letter didnt mention it. Anybody know the deal?

BMW is so far behind on this shit that many of us will be lucky to get the recall notice by next year.

They're going to hurt for this one- they're even being prohibited from selling cars because of it I'm understanding.

Keep up with the cost cutting model BMW- see how that goes for you.

I got my letter today too.

I heard some other companies (Acura) are paying for rental cars until they can fix it! They anticipate up to three months. Will BMW give us a rental since they cant fix the problem?

I like how the letter states the airbag may kill you, but they dont have the parts to fix it. Ridiculous.

Got mine today too. Hell I'm still waiting on parts for passenger airbag occupancy mat. I got that recall almost a year ago for both cars.

You can get off THAT horse!

Takata bags in Mercedes Benz, too. and VW, and Audi
Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Mistubishi, Toyota, Saab
GM, Ford, Chrysler

In spite of ramping up production, Takata cannot possible supply replacement airbags for all affected cars fast enough.
So some manufacturers have penned deals with other airbag manufacturers so as not to have to wait quite so long...they pay for these bags vs. Takata probably absorbing cost of replacements for their own defective units.

In Feb 2016 there was estimation that 90 MILLION more cars could be affected, bringing the total to 120 million, cars produced over the past 15 years.. Imagine how long THAT takes!

I blame them all, along with the airbag manufacturer. Greed, selfishness and a blatant disregard for human life took the wheel (pun intended), and R&D, sensibility and quality assurance took a backseat with all parties.

What is most outrageous is the fact that Honda and Takata have allegedly known about the faulty inflators since 2004, but failed to notify NHTSA in previous recall filings (which began in 2008) that the affected airbags had actually ruptured or were linked to injuries or deaths.

Choose your vendor wisely.

Go here to the NHTSA site to see the makes/models affected & to check by VIN#

My VIN is not in the recall according to searching the safercar site. Even though it is in the model/year range. Does this mean not all in the range are affected?

Apparently the range info is all encompassing - I would think the VIN would be the true tale

Got mine for both X5 and 335i today. No parts in stock at two different dealers. Amazingly enough I got another one for my kid's 2005 Honda CRV which was replaced last summer. The replacement bag is defective too!

Wow. So a design defect that only really effects cars exposed to environments of very high humidity levels makes almost every manufacturer in the industry selfish, greedy, people with complete disregard for human life? Really? Out of millions of vehicles less than 20 injuries have occurred and you call that a complete disregard for human life. How do you sleep at night Batman?

Ok ok ....maybe that was extreme. Surely there is a better way though.

The families who have lost loved ones over this though probably have worse sentiments to express.
