Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 BMW 325 Owner Comments

problem #4

325 6-cyl

  • 95,000 miles


The idrive control panel is showing an alert that the passenger airbag has failed. I contacted BMW customer service and they say my VIN is not included in NHTSA campaign number 13V564000 (air bags) even though the description of the problem matches my problem exactly. I have a 2006 BMW 325xi with standard seats and according to 13V564000 I should be eligible for coverage under the extended warranty. BMW is telling me I am responsible for the repairs.

Front seat passenger seat occupancy sensor failed. Most 2006 BMW 3 series were recalled for this issue. Our car was not included in the recall but had the identical problem. I believe my car should have been included in the recall.
