2006 BMW X5 Owner Comments

problem #2

X5 8-cyl

  • 106,999 miles


Passenger airbag is de-activated. Passenger seat occupancy sensor is not working. BMW states that my production date is not inclusive of the recall# 13V564000. The recall starts mfg date 12/1/2005 forward for BMW X5 models. BMW customer service stated my date of mfg was 10/25/2005 and they will not cover. I need intervention with this matter. It is more than coincidence that I am having the identical issue as cars mfg less than 35 days after my mfg date. Thank you.
