Driver's Restraint System Malfunction

05-09-2011, 07:17 PM
Purchased a pre-owned 2010 535i GT (former program car) two weeks ago with less than 7K miles. Alert message, Drivers Restraint System Malfunction, appeared two days ago. Appointment scheduled with the service center; stay tuned.

After having the vehicle two days, the SA (who didn't call us; we had to call him) says it is the driver's airbag and not the usual culprit, the seat sensor. He couldn't give an ETA on completing the repair! Hope this will not be an example of service responses!

Airbag in steering wheel replaced under warranty. Took 4 days to diagnose and repair. Driving home I noticed the windshield washer reservoir light was on. You'd think the service center would have noted it and refilled it!
