Mein Auto: '13 F10 535i (loaner)
I called NHTSA today (888 number) and actually got through to a supervisor. My comment was, what's the delay? Why did NHTSA's ODI vigorously pursue this for several years, and now there's no action...owner notification letters were supposed to go out in October...
NHTSA's response was that they can't comment on private communications between them and the manufacturer, but hinted that the scope of this recall may require the manufacturer to ramp up for necessary replacement parts, consequently the delay. They only suggested to contact BMW NA regarding the ETA of the notification letters. I complained to NHTSA that an updated status should be posted on their recall web site for this recall.
Has anyone done this; called BMW NA? What was BMW NA's response? Edit: I see the info in post #63..."letters soon."
