 Description of the problemTakata recall i called 1 877 432 7841. After explaining that i lived hundreds of miles from the nearest bmw dealer, i was told by the phone rep that my case would be accelerated and that i would be hearing back by phone. I waited days, but no one ever called me. I then called 1-800-831-1117. I got bounced around and was finally connected with a bmw dealer in idaho falls, almost 500 miles from my home in rosebud, montana. The person who spoke to me was very young, had a poor attitude, and wanted to order me around. She ignored all my pleas. I am 65 years old and drive hundreds of miles per week for my usda job. I thus do not have the physical stamina or time to drive to idaho falls. Nevertheless she told me i had to drive to idaho falls for a saturday appointment. She informed me that any expenses i incurred (gasoline, lodging, etc.) had to come out of my own pocket and that i would not be reimbursed. I begged her to have the airbags sent to a mechanic or body shop near me in montana. She refused. I ended the conversation and sent an sos email to the dot. The dot has never answered my email.
