BMW 3 SERIES Structure Frame And Members Underbody Shields problems : 2.
I Own A 2000 bmw 323ci With Just Over 80k On It And My Rear Subframe Mounts Have Ripped Through The Bottom Of The Car And The Whole Rear Of The Car Is About To Fall Off. After Some Searching I Found Around 200 Fellow 3 Series Owners Who Are In The Same Boat Almost All Of Which Are 99 And 2000 Models. bmwna Insist This Is Not A Defect But Do To Aggressive Driving Or Suspenion Modes None Of Which Apply To Me Or The Many Others Who Are Having The Same Problem. Its Not Just About The Estimated 3 To 7 Thousand Dollar Repair Bill It Needs To Be Addressed Mainly For The People On The Road Endangering Themselves And Everyone Else And The Don’t Even Have A Clue Because The Only Symptom Is S Slight Rattle One Which The Average Driver Wouldn’t Even Notice. *tr

The Left Rear Subframe Mount Torn Away From The Vehicle Unibody/frame Mounting Location. The Rear Body Metal Fatigue Was Caused From Loading And Unloading Of The Drive Train Due To An Engineering Design Defect. This Occurred Under Normal Driving Conditions And Is A Known Defect By bmw. A Class Action Law Suit Required bmw To Fix The Problem From 2009 To 2010, But There Are Still Many Vehicles On The Road That Have Not Been Repaired Or The Metal Fatigue Showed Up After The 2010 Deadline For Repair. This Is A Major Defect Making The Vehicle Unsafe To Drive Because The Rear Axle Can Separate From The Vehicle. This Should Be A Vehicle Recall And All bmw E46 3 Series Should Have The Rear Subframe Mounting Points Repaired And Reinforced By bmw At No Cost. *tr
