BMW contacted me in September announcing a safety recall of the airbags in my vehicle, indicating they required replacement and BMW would contact me to schedule the service for the recall. Over six months have passed with no action by BMW to correct this urgent safety defect. This is simply unacceptable. BMW needs to take action to correct this defect.
