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.

Drivers side front airbag seat mat sensor. Fault for driver side seat mat sensor. The passenger side seat mat sensor has been replaced under recall for the vehicle. However, the drivers side still has the error and I would like to know why the driver side seat mat sensor is not also covered under the recall for the passenger side seat mat sensor.

Just had to paid over $900 dollars to have my fronts passenger air bag seat occupancy sensor mat replaced. I see that there was a recalled issued for these item on November 2013 recall campaign number 13V-564. I was told by BMW of dallas that my VIN number was not part of the recall. I find it a an odd coincident that my vehicle air bag light was on and BMW technicians diagnose the problem as a faulty sensor mat but I'm told that my vehicle manufacture date does not fall within the dates the faulty mat was used. I think BMW should look into the possibility that more VIN numbers might have been affected by a faulty mat and more VIN numbers should be part of the recall.

At home cranked car to leave and airbag and seat belt warning lights came on. Called dealership and was told it is the front seat occupant protection mat, but no recall for this model. They are well aware of this problem. Afraid to drive a car that cost so much and BMW wont stand behind their product is ridiculous.

BMW has a recall on the air bag for this year and model but they refuse to honor the recall saying that only certain VIN# were covered. How can that be when mine has failed, should I not be covered since I have a sensor that failed.

Air bag occupancy sensor mat fault illuminated upon initial start of the vehicle in the morning. Took it to the dealer the next day and was diagnosed as having a defective passenger occupancy mat. However, the current recall does not cover it even though its a 2007 because the build date was Feb 2007 and the recall covers build dates of 2005 to Sept. 2006. This should be covered under the same recall.

My passenger air bags are inoperable in my vehicle. It was this way when I bought the car. It was reported to me the vehicle was under recall for the situation but when I had the car taken to the dealership, they informed me my particular vehicle wasn't under recall. My question is why is my car isn't one of the vehicles under recall. I had the car checked out by a certified BMW mechanic and he stated it's in the passenger occupancy detector.
