The front passenger seat sensor in my 2006 BMW is defective whether the car is in motion or stationary but only when the car is on. Making the passenger airbags turned off during the event of a crash, many other 2006 bmws like mine are affected with this issue. A recall has been done for bmws for models 2007 and newer but not for the 2006 model year. A recall needs to be done for this year make to insure the safety of people and passengers riding in this car.

BMW continues to drag its feet on fixing recall. I have not been able to drive my vehicle for over 6 months now. Called dealer in charlotte nc (hendrick BMW on E. independence boulevard) multiple times and each time they either do not have the part or need to order it.

Takata recall- my airbag in the steering wheel has been replaced. The passenger seat mat sensor has had to be replaced 2X(1X under warranty) 1X I had to pay out of pocket and now a 3rd time (out of pocket) it has broken again. I believe this is a faulty part and should be covered under warranty. The vehicle was stationary each time this has broken.

Getting a hard warning for "passenger restraint system malfunction". apparently this has something to do with a sensor in the passenger seat going bad. This can cause injury or fatality as the passenger airbag will not deploy correctly. There has been a recall for this but my VIN was not included.

Restraint malfunction for front passenger code 93C3. My VIN is not a part of the recall but the particular model has recall for the same issue. The code is for the airbag which would not deploy in the case of an accident if a passenger is sitting in the front seat or not.

The id light came on for passenger air. It said that passenger air bag was off. We took to BMW of roanoke to repair and state inspect the vehicle. They had to replace the passenger air bag mat at a cost of $ $1,433.87 on invoice no. Bmcs56560. My concern is that if we were involved in accident the passenger air bag would have not worked and my wife could have been hurt or killed. I have the old part and could send it to you. The BMW only has 105,747 miles and was delivered per BMW of roanoke 12/24/2009. It is not no recall but maybe it should have been

I took my BMW for an airbag recall to classic BMW on 6800 North dallas pkwy, plano, rx. They did not discuss any charges and supposedly they changed my airbag on the driver side for free. This was completed on June,5,2017. On June,13, 2017 my airbag sign started coming up. Has never had issues with my car in the past regarding air bag sign. Now classic BMW wants me to pay 180 dollars just to diagnose something they worked on. Now they are giving me on the text message a laundry list of items related to air bag. Whatever has happened is what they have damaged. I tried to work it with them and talk and explain. It seems they don't want to discuss it at all. My car was working very clean and properly.

I am lodging a complaint against BMW usa. I have been calling and writing BMW for the past 2 years pleading for them to repkace my recalled airbag. BMW first sent me a notice regarding my recalled takata airbag 2 1/2 years ago. BMW has still not replaced my airbag, stating lack or available parts as the reason they will not replace my airbag. This is a potentially life threatening defect. They ha be had 2 1/2 years to remedy this problem on my car, and still refuse to do so. Please help before someone dies or is seriously injured.
