Nanuet, NY

i brought my vehicle in to have a problem fixed with the sun roof and mentioned that i had a problem with steering the vehicle during braking at slow speeds. when i got the repair list back from the dealer i noticed that they had replaced a major portion of the braking and steering system. the service seemed rather familiar with the problem and didn't hesitate to replace all of the componets which leads me to believe that they are aware of a signifigant problem with these vehicles and have not reported it. i have been checking the bmw websites on the 3 series and have found that a large number of these cars have the same defect in their vehicles. the manufacturer is paying for the full replacement of the defective systems, but, only if you ask about the problem. they are not currently notifying individual owners of this problem to have this condition corrected prior to the complaint.

Bmw 528i 1999

Safety incident date:
June 22, 2000
Location:
Little Rock, AR

my car was hit (broad-sided at a perpendicular angle) by a 16 yo in an 1989 camaro. my bmw vehicle sustained major structural damage, including bending of the car-frame, blow-out of the driver's window (that landed on the passenger, lacerating his leg), and separation and rupture of the body side door panel assembly and door shell. i sustained blunt left shoulder injuries and bruising from impacting the pillar, and also back/leg injuries. despite the severity of the impact (that made both left-side doors inoperable), neither the side nor the head restraint airbag systems deployed, and the emergency central unlocking system did not activate. i have contacted bmw america, who after weeks of unhelpful suggestions, had the car inspected. the engineers' report (which to date, has not been shared with me despite my repeated requests), states that the impact "was not severe enough to activate the deployment" of the airbags. have there been any other such instances of failure reported to nhtsa? in the bmw advertisement of the passive reastraint system, the side (and head) airbags are clearly claimed to be deployed during side impacts of lesser severity than the one i experienced. all bmw and mercedes sales people and mechanics who have seen the damage to the car were of the opinion that the bags should have deployed. i have documented the damage with photos. can you please advise? thank you very much.

bmw 325 ci: i have experienced so many problems with my 325ci bmw, i bought the car in november, the car is not even 1 year old and i have taken to service four times already. my car is a 2002 and at this moment it has 10,660 miles. the car has a major computer problem. my abs seems to be malfunctioning as well as my emergency brake, and to make matters worse the transmission has been reprogramed and pieces are coming off in the inside. i have taken the car to service the past three weeks for the the computer and the body. lucky bmw does have great service and i havent had to pay for a single repair. but i would really like to file a lemon law on the car because i know the problems with the car will never stop.
