Lock/latch Mechanism Sometimes Malfunctions, Such That You Cannot Unlock Passenger Side Door From The Inside Or Outside. When That Happens, At Least I Can Use The Manual Key To Open The Driver’s Side Door. But bmw Has The Foresight To Not Include A Key Opening On The Passenger Side. So A Few Times, I Had To Ask My Passenger To Crawl Over To Her Seat By Climbing Over The Driver’s Side. This Is More Than Inconvenient; It’s Embarrassing, Especially For Ladies In Dresses. *tr

We Have A Safety Issue With Our bmw 323i Year 2000. The Electric Door Locks Will Actuate And Then You Cannot Get Out Of The Car Through 3 Or 4 Doors. The Electric Locks Will Not Disengage And You Cannot Release Them With The Handle From The Inside Of The Vehicle. Passengers Are Basically Trapped Inside The Car And Have To Climb Over The Front Seat To Exit The Vehicle. Problem Has Been Recurring Frequently. After An Extended Period Of Time, We Are Usually Able To Get The Locks To Work. I Found 10 Complaints Filed On This Same Issue With One Death And 3 Injuries Resulting From This Malfunction. There Are Probably More Complaints But I Just Looked At 3 Vehicle Years. *tr

The Front Passenger Door On My bmw 323 Cic (model Year 2000) Regularly Fails To Unlock Preventing Passengers Entry Or Exit Through This Door. I Replaced The Actuator On The Passenger Door And The Door Still Fails To Unlock Regularly Using All Possible Means Available, I.e. Key Fob, Interior Unlock Button, Or Pulling Repeatedly On The Door Handle To Attempt To Open The Door. They All Fail Leaving The Passenger (front & Back Since I Own A Two Door) Trapped In The Car And Forced To Climb Out The Driver’s Door After All Other Passengers Have Left The Car. This Is A Safety Issue For Passengers In My Car Who Are Handicapped, Recovering From Surgery, Not In Good Physical Shape To Climb Over The Middle Console To Exit The Vehicle Or If There Is An Accident. This Also Is A Common Issue On This Model Which bmw Has Not Acknowledged And Initiated A Voluntary Recall To Fix. Given The Safety Issues That This Type Of Common Problem Presents, I Would Like The Nhtsa To Investigate And Determine If bmw Needs To Be Forced To Do A Recall To Address This. *tr
