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.

The front seat occupant protection mat in the 2007 BMW 328xi is displayed on my dash instrumentation for over a year.in the event of a crash the front passenger air bag could be deactivated resulting in personal injury. I looked up the recalls on this vehicle and it indicated that the model was recalled. I called BMW customer relations to inquire about the recall and the representative informed me that my vehicle VIN number was not part of the recall. I understand that numerous BMW owners have made a similar complaint about their vehicle and recalls are usually initiated in this manner. Regardless of the production time that my vehicle was made, my vehicle has the same defect as the other vehicles and should be replaced by BMW.

I have a 2007 BMW 328I and while driving down the interstate my air bag and restraint lights came on. I know there are recalls on them but when I add my VIN it is not one of them. I am a little worried that if I were to get into a accident the airbags will not deploy.

My car's airbag warning light began to illuminate intermittently over the summer indicating the passenger airbag was disabled, even when someone was sitting in the seat with their seat belt fastened. After awhile, the airbag warning light was on consistently, as well as the seat belt light. The car now has the passenger airbag permanently disabled. This car is unsafe for a front passenger as there is no way to enable the airbag manually. I was informed by BMW that there was a recall regarding the same year and model (2007 328I) for this exact problem, however my car does not qualify for either the recall, or the extended warranty as it is only models with a certain part number.

Same as this person passenger restraint malfunction. NHTSA campaign number 13V564000. My vehicle matches the criteria exactly. Sport seats. Yet BMW claims it is not applicable to VIN. A simple internet search shows a flood of people having the exact same issue yet they are all being denied by BMW even though their vehicles fit the exact profile of the recall.

The air bag and seat belt lights have been on for about a year now. There is a safety recall listing my vehicle make, model and year. I have contacted bmwusa and a local BMW dealership with both claiming my vehicle is not included in the recall. However, my vehicle make, model, year and vehicle production date is specifically listed in the recall notice listed on the NHTSA website. I don't understand why it is listed or why BMW is not assisting further.
