problem #1

128 6-cyl

My car warning message stated fault in passenger side airbag/belt tensioner, service asap, continue to wear safety belt (or something similar). Took vehicle to dealer, diagnosed with passenger seat mat occupancy sensor failure. Quoted $2600 for repair. This has been in the past and currently a recall problem that has affected over 200,000 vehicles due to a faulty/poorly designed part. Dealer and BMW of na state that my vehicle has not yet been included in recall. This is an extreme safety issue, it should not take multiple complaints, injuries, or deaths before cars having this issue are placed on the recall list! in addition a repair to a safety component should not be put someone nearly $3000 in debt! NHTSA please encourage BMW to enforce the recall/extended warranty to all vehicles having this same issue, there a hundreds of threads on the internet regarding bmws of all makes and models having the same problem with the sensors failing. Please do not wait for people to be injured or killed because of a faulty part not allowing the airbag to deploy!
