Takata air bag recall

1. Who has and who has not received notification of recall.
2. Who has and who has not had their recall completed.

I have not received any notification. In May, I had my car in to the dealer for the "Confidence Check" and no mention was made of the recall.

As far as I know they are still waiting on replacement airbags. I have gone to 3 different dealers and all have said the same

I received the first letter last year for my 2009. I received a letter last week that the parts are in and to schedule service at your nearest BMW service center. I plan on making an appointment today.

I received the original letter at least a year or so ago. The final letter came exactly a week ago. Called up my local dealer and luckily they had some in stock. They held one for me, I made an appointment and I went in this past Wednesday. Took all of 25-30 mintutes

Got a "post card" with a lovely picture of a brand new 3 series on the front. I opened it and read basically "we are waiting on parts. We will contact you when we are ready to give you the next step" Cool story bro! It's like a murder mystery......OOHHHH what's the next step??!!?1?! Should I get my footie pajamas on with a cold glass of milk??

OK, to re-cap above Canadian replies, only 1 person actually said that they had received a recall letter. Americans in the southern high humidity are starting to get their bags replaced but us up here, we are low on the priority list and no one has had their bag replaced. Still have to wonder why I did not receive any notification-will have to check with my dealer. Having a complementary test drive on a M3 on the 10 October.

I have heard there is a solid backlog for many BMW series on the recall. Not just for the 1ers.

I was lucky enough to buy my 135i right after it was traded in. And the dealers I believe cannot sell a car with open known safety recalls.

So same day I said I wanted the car they had me pickup end of day so they could do the airbag recall on it.

I recently purchased a 135i. How do I know whether the airbag recall has been performed or not?

Did you buy it from a dealer or independent garage? If from the dealer, yes, if from an independent, highly unlikely.

Call BMW Canada and find out.

Never did get a letter but I am scheduled to go in tomorrow for a recall on the Guibo and the SA confirmed that I am on the list for the airbag recall. But of course they are still waiting on parts. Gonna wear my closed face helmet until this is done.
