Yes, my good slightly-used BMW is in the recall for the airbag. Dealer says there are 70 ahead of me in the line for the replacement. They have been getting shipments of 15 at a time – last deliver was 2 weeks ago. Even though the manufacturer is significantly increasing capacity, they can’t begin to meet the current backlog to replace the highest risk customers in Florida and Hawaii. Yes, I live in Florida where the risk of problems is greatest.

Now, Honda is jumping in to cover their butts – all vehicles regardless of risk are now in line for the replacement airbags. Oh great. Someone with near zero risk in Wisconsin or North Dakota will be getting their airbag replaced years before I will. Welcome to “it sucks to be you” land of opportunity.
