AIR BAGS

8/12/2017 - OAK RIDGE, NJ
TAKATA RECALL....STILL AWAITING UPDATE/NOTICE/REPAIR/ANYTHING FROM BMW NORTH AMERICA SINCE I WAS INITIALLY NOTIFIED IN MARCH 2016. IT IS NOW AUGUST 2017! I HAVE A CAR THAT I AM INSURING, SITTING UNUSED IN MY DRIVEWAY BECAUSE IT IS A SAFETY HAZARD. I CAN'T SELL IT, OR TRADE IT IN DUE TO DECREASED VALUE OF AIRBAG LIGHT ON, AND LACK OF REPAIR. IT IS COMING UP FOR STATE INSPECTION SOON, AND WON'T PASS BECAUSE AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON. THIS IS A VERY FRUSTRATING, UNFAIR AND WORSE, POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS OR FATAL SITUATION. I FIND IT INEXCUSABLE THAT IT HAS BEEN ALMOST A YEAR AND A HALF SINCE FIRST NOTIFICATION, AND A REMEDY HAS STILL NOT BEEN MADE. BMW NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO MAKE NECESSARY REPAIRS IN A MORE TIMELY AND REASONABLE MANNER. IT IS JUST UNACCEPTABLE THAT THIS IS TAKING SO LONG. IF REPAIRS CANNOT BE MADE, BMW SHOULD BUY THE VEHICLE BACK AND COMPENSATE THE OWNERS FOR LOSS OF USE PLUS FAIR MARKET VALUE.
