"takata recall" I was hit by a driver going approx 100mph on highway 50E from behind and after being severally hit my tekata airbag damaged my chest, hurt my face, burned my clothes, arms, and made it impossible to breathe. This wouldn't have happened if BMW had more availability to inform, replace and fix such a horrific event.

I recieved a notice about this recall about 2 years ago and had it checked at BMW santa maria (ca). Tyhey said they wo0uld order the parts and call when they came in. Hearing nothing for a period of time I was told BMW wasn't willing to do the replacement at that time. That the believed my car was not at risk. When I recieced a 2nd notice I called them again and was told the repairs had been made. I asked to show me proof of this and they have not. I do not know what to do next.

Takata recall - my air bag light is on. Evidence of moisture was discovered after further inspection by a certified BMW technician. This is inline will the current recall however I am being told that my VIN is not affected. I am extremely concerned about my safety in the event of an accident. What I am experiencing is exactly what is described in the recall and it should be repaired by BMW in accordance with the recall and the law. This is a major safety issue and needs to be resolved asap before something tragic happens. The recall needs to be expanded to include all vehicles that are affected by the faulty parts or installation of the air bags.

Received notification from BMW usa for recall campaign no. 14V-428 (defective front seat passenger air bag) last September 2014. As of today's date (March 11, 2015), BMW usa has not informed me when I can expect them to perform the work needed to rectify the defective front passenger air bag. Their suggestion that I operate the vehicle without a front seat passenger is ludicrous and virtually impractical.
