    Another Airbag Recall?

    Here we go again.....Just got an email for another recall regarding airbags. This time it's the inflator... how does Takata stay in business?

    Summary:

    PASSENGER'S FRONT AIR BAG: This recall is for vehicles which have already had the Takata PSPI passenger front air bag replaced as part of a previous recall. During air bag deployment in an accident, the passenger's front air bag module may produce excessive internal pressure that could cause the inflator to explode.

    the email:

    To:you Details
    U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Your vehicle MAY be involved in a safety recall and MAY create a safety risk for you or your passengers. If left unrepaired, a potential safety defect could lead to injury or even death. Safety defects must be repaired by a dealer at no cost to you.

    I bet they may not know....if you follow the link, NHTSA states:

    Recall Status: Recall Incomplete, remedy not yet available

    The BMW Store Cincinnati may do what they did with my driver side airbag and put me on a "list" of first come first serve callers and then give me a ring when the parts come in.

    Dang! Hope I receive this letter too.

    It sucks to have to do it, but parts of me appreciate going to dealership and get out of there for free! Especially as I have never bought a BMW from a BMW dealer.

    Thanks for the heads-up

    Interesting, as I never did get a letter. But, when I called South Bay BMW they had me in their system (I know the recall is more a corporate HQ thing).

    looks like the recall is for the inflators this time, not the airbags. Sounds like we all get to go to the dealer again.....
