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.

Driver door will not unlock or open. According to dozens of forum posts, it's a known issue. Very dangerous if this fails in an accident and can't get out of the car. Only way to get in and out is through window or passenger door. It is possible for all locks to fail and only way to get out would be from the windows. Even door handle can't open door.

I was driving at highway speeds when I hit a small bump in the road which caused my scalding hot coffee to get ejected from the hop holder onto my leg. The cup holders in this car are dangerous because they are spring loaded from underneath. When you have a drink in the holder it (cup holder) exerts upward force on the cup. When the cup is light enough or you hit a bump hard enough it will eject whatever beverage in the holder onto the driver and / or passenger. I had a can of soda come out one and land on the drivers side floor. It wedged under the back of the brake pedal and I almost had an accident. This problem is widespread as I have spoken with other 3 series owners and they have had the same problem.
