TAKATA RECALL I HAVE TWO VEHICLES IN RECALL. IT HAS BEEN SEVERAL YEARS SINCE DISCOVERED. BMW HAS DONE NOTHING. CALLS TO DEALER SAY "NO PARTS"' SO MY WIFE AND I MUST DRIVE THESE VEHICLES THAT MAY BE DANGEROUS WITH NO IDEA WHEN THE CONDITION WILL BE CORRECTED. OTHER COMPANIES MADE QUICK UPDATES. WHY NOT BMW?

THERE IS AN ACTIVE RECALL CAMPAIGN 08V-384 FOR DEFECTIVE FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAGS THAT WILL NOT DEPLOY AND PROTECT THE PASSENGER OCCUPANT IN THE EVENT OF A SEVERE ACCIDENT. THE ACTIVE RECALL CAMPAIGN WHICH IS EXTENDED FOR 10 YEARS ONLY COVERS MODEL YEARS 2004-2006 OF THE BMW X3 DESPITE THE FIRST GENERATION OF THE VEHICLE BEING PRODUCED FROM 2003 - 2010 AND VEHICLES FROM ALL OTHER YEARS EXHIBITING THE SAME SYMPTOMS. FOR INSTANCE MY OWN VEHICLE IS MODEL YEAR 2009 AND EXHIBITS ALL SYMPTOMS OF THE AIR BAG ISSUE AS DESCRIBED IN THE RECALL CAMPAIGN NOTICE HOWEVER I HAVE NO MATTER OF RECOURSE AND HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO PETITION THE DEALERSHIP OR BMW NORTH AMERICA LLC TO REMEDY THE ISSUE AS THEY HAVE REFUSED CITING THE RECALL CAMPAIGN MAKES THEM LIABLE ONLY FOR THOSE SPECIFIC MODEL YEARS WHICH IS RIDICULOUS SINCE THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND IS NOT RECEIVING AS MUCH ATTENTION DUE TO THE MASSIVE TAKATA RECALL. I WOULD LIKE TO PETITION THE NHTSA TO HAVE BMW EXPAND THE AIRBAG RECALL CAMPAIGN TO COVER ADDITIONAL MODEL YEARS OF THE SAME PRODUCTION GENERATION OF THE X3.
