NHTSA investigation of 00-01 3er airbag problem

1385 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  RichNY
Just saw a brief bit on the R&T site about a current NHTSA investigation into 00-01 3ers regarding reports and insurance claims of front passenger side impact airbags deploying for no reason.

I've yet to hear of anyone on any of the forums having this issue, though.

Recall for '99 models with same symptom

Not sure if it was the same problem, but the symptom was the same...side airbags deploying when bumping curbs or even just hitting a big pothole. There was a recall for this a couple of years back. The issue was corrected through a software update.

This sounds new, though.
