At temperature above 87 degrees F (after a full day in open parking lot under sun) as indicated on the car's dashboard, the seat belt sensor of the car malfunctioned. Even though I had my seat belt firmly clasped but the car kept on beeping seatbelt warning for about 5-10 minutes until the temperature inside the car dropped to less than 87 degrees F. the seatbelt warning went away after I opened the window and let the car cool down or switched on ac in the car. This is a repeatable problem and can be reproduced if my car is kept in direct summer sun for an afternoon and has occurred a number of times in the past. Since airbag sensors interact with the faulty seatbelt sensors so it has potentially serious safety consequences and need to be addressed by BMW as soon as possible.

2011 BMW 328I. Consumer states problem with the rail on which the front seats are mounted the consumer stated each seat has two rails attached to the floor. The rails, attach to the seats move to allow adjustment. When the drivers seat is properly adjusted, the top rails mounted on the seats, project several inches into foot well of the rear passenger compartment. The rails are bare metal and have sharp edges on the end and they project 2 1/2 inches and are not flushed to the floor. The consumer believed there was ample space for his feet to pass beneath the sharp rails. He believed it posed a safety hazard while entering and exiting the vehicle.
