In Re: Takata Airbag Products Liability Litigation BMW Settlement
No. 15-MD-2599-FAM
United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida

Case Summary

The lawsuit alleges BMW manufactured, distributed, or sold certain vehicles containing allegedly defective inflators manufactured by Takata Corporation and TK Holdings, Inc. that allegedly could, upon deployment, rupture and expel debris or shrapnel into the occupant compartment and/or otherwise affect the airbag’s deployment, and that the Plaintiffs sustained economic losses as a result. The lawsuit pursues claims for violations of various state consumer protection statutes, among other claims. BMW denies that it has violated any law, denies liability, and denies that it engaged in any wrongdoing with respect to the manufacture, distribution, or sale of the Subject Vehicles.

    When will rebates be paid?

    ADMIN – Hi Jackie,

    Are you talking about reimbursements for expenses associated to the airbag replacement? Or are you talking residuals?

    I am a BMW loyalist and I received the paperwork I cant tell you how long ago that two of my vehicles qualified for this suit. I would say it has been WELL over 2 years since I was notified and I happen to run across this posting and it brings back the memories of when I laughed out-loud hysterically……BMW will be in court I am sure for a long while playing the role of defendant. So don’t quit your day job people.

    Any plans for a Mercedes Takata airbag Class Action? Mine has been parked for 3 months, Mercedes refuses to address the issue (told me “maybe” I’ll get it replaced by March 2019!!) no loaners, nothing. They have the lowest response to the airbag issue of all the involved manufacturers. My GLK is a 2013 and I live in South Florida. The NHTS instructed the manufacturers to replace older units in hot/humid locations first yet my friends much newer vehicle was done and I still wait losing money every day.

    ADMIN – Hi Lara,

    Consider reaching out to a class action attorney.
