"takata recall" BMW does not appear to take this recall serious. I called # on hugh glossy postcard, spent over 10 min --- no human. Called national # they said they could forward me to local # (back where I started.) got return call told her I needed 4 pm appoint. Oh now they only ha appoints til 1:30. This BMW location does not care about "urgent recall notice" talked to a guy (higher up). When I insisted I needed 4 pm appoint he hung up!

Just took my 2002 BMW in to replace defective airbags. BMW sterling, va wanted $1611.05 to replace airbag control unit/sid. Did not pay them... this should be looked into immediately... they are ripping people off. They replaced the airbags and you have a light on - so are they functional or not... they are ripping people off... james E. mendes 703-587-8599

Takata recall. We are under recall 17V047. For four months, we have been calling and doing on-line chats with BMW of mobile (mobile, Alabama). Every call or chat ends with them asking for our phone number and email address. They say they will contact us shortly with info on when or if the recall can be done. They have never once called or emailed us back. I can understand that it might take a while, but they could at least let us know what is going on while we are driving this dangerous car. Is there anything we can do about this, or do we wait and be ignored until something really bad happens" aren't they required to honor this recall"

Airbag light comes on when driving, and sometimes it does not. I have contacted the dealership jacksonville fl multiple times to get the recall fixed since the recall notice in the mail. They alway say they don't have the part and cannot do it. They will try to order it and if it comes in they will contact me. I never hear back from them.
