The Car Went Into The Shop For A Broken Water Pump. The Shop Noticed That The Subframe And Floor Pan Were Broken And The Subframe Was Completely Ripped From The Car. The Repair Estimate Is $5,300. bmw Na Has Been Terrible To Deal With And Told Us “we Are On Our Own” And That Our Vin # Was Not Part Of The Recall. After 5 Weeks Of Escalating The Matter Within bmw Na, They Have Offered Us $2,000 Towards The Cost Of Repair. Given That This Car Has Never Been Driven Hard Nor In An Accident, It Is Clear That It Is A Recurring Mechanical Defect That bmw Is Aware Of But Not Willing To Shoulder Any Responsibility For. The Worst Part Is, Had The Water Pump Not Failed, We Were Unaware Of The Critical Damage That Could Have Resulted In Our Serious Bodily Injury Had We Continued To Drive The Car.
