The bmw Car Was Parked, When Tried To Back Out The Reverse Gear Did Not Work. This Was A Safety Hazard As The Car Was Parked Down Hill And Close To A Fencing. Car Only Worked In The Forward Direction And It Was Dangerous To Move The Car In The Front Direction. Thus Causing Safety Concern. The Dealership Confirmed That The Transmission Needed Replacement. On Contacting Several bmw Service Centres, Few Of Them Indicated That The Reverse Gear Safety Problem Is Occuring In Several Other Same Model And Year Car. They Indicated This Was Due To A Faulty Design In The Transmission Of The 2000 323i bmw Cars.

I Have A bmw 323ci, Year 2000. It Has Around 42000 Miles On It. A Few Days Ago, I Was Parked In My Garage. I Put The Car Into Reverse And Hit The Accelerator, And The Car Went Nowhere. It Didn’t Shift Into Reverse At All. I Pushed The Car Out Of The Garage, And Put The Car In Drive Gear. It Went Forward Fine. I Drove It To The Shop And They Look At It And Said I Need A New Transmission. This Will Cost Thousands. On A bmw With Only 42,000 Miles On It! My Research Indicates That This Is A Problem That Is Happening To A Lot Of People With The Same Car And Model Year. It Is Clearly A Manufacturer’s Defect Which Ought To Be The Subject Of A Recall.*jb

I Currently Own A 2000 bmw 323i With 49,000 Miles And Was Just Told Today That My Transmission Needs To Be Replaced, To The Tune Of $5200. I Took My Car To The Dealership Because I Was Unable To Reverse. It Appears That This Is A Recurring Problem With Several Owners Of This Very Make And Model Based On Other Complaints Filed On Different Website. Naturally, My Warranty Ran Out Last Summer At 36,000 Miles So I Am Unable To Do Anything There. I Believe There Is Definitely A Manufacturing Problem Here When A Transmission Is Failing At Less Than 50,000 Miles. I Plan On Contacting bmw N.a. To Discuss The Outrageous Price That I Have Been Quoted To See If They Can Help Intervene Or Offer A Solution. *nm

We Bought A 2000 bmw 323i Which Currently Only Has About 66,000 Miles On It. The Car Will Shift Into Reverse, But Will Not Actually Move Backwards. It Just Sits There Revving. The Car Will Drive Forward, But Not Backwards. We Were Told That The Transmission And The Transmission Thermometer Needs To Be Replaced For A Cost Of $4500.00. We’ve Done All The Necessary Maintenance On This Vehicle. I’ve Searched The Web And Found Many Other Complaints About The Same Issue. I Filed A Complaint With bmw, But Of Course, They’re Not Taking Responsibility. These Cars Should Have Been Recalled To Replace The Transmission. I Was Stranded At Work When The Car Broke Down. Now, I’m Without My Car And Also Don’t Have The Extra Money To Put Towards A Repair Of $4500.00. For A High End Car, This Is Unacceptable. This Will Most Be My First And Last bmw Purchase. *jb

My 2000 bmw 323i Won’t Go In Reverse. The Problem Occurred With No Warning, As The Car Has Been Properly Maintained And Has Operated Perfectly Until Today. The Present Mileage Is A Little Over 60,000. An Online Search Of The Problem Has Revealed This Is A Very Common Problem That’s Specific To My Make/model/year, Yet bmw Disavows Any Responsibility. Estimated Repair Is $7,000, Which Has Me Feeling Totally Disgusted With bmw As A Company, Not To Mention Its Products, Which It Apparently No Longer Stands Behind. I Can Only Hope The Government Will Take Action Against bmw And Force A Recall. *nm

My 2000 323i (144k Miles) Reverse Doesn’t Work Anymore. I Started Noticing Problems A Few Years Ago But Each Time I Complained They (northwest bmw In Randallstown) Never Found A Problem. I Called The Dealership And I Was Quoted A Fee Of ~$4500 For Repair. This Is Insane, I Think I’ve Had This Problem All Along And No One Really Ever Took The Time At The Dealership To Investigate Properly. I Am Very Disheartened About The Whole Situation. The bmw Manufacturers Should Have Recalled This Vehicle Model Several Years Ago.

I Own A 2000 bmw 3.23i That I Bought Brand New In 2000. I Spent A Lot Of Money For That Car And Had Nothing But Problems With It. I Had To Replace The Window Regulators Many Times, And Had A Water Leak Problem. I Spend Thousands Of Dollars In Other Items That Was Just Crazy, Especially For A Car That Just Had 70,000 Miles. The Big Problem Which Caused Me Write This Complaint Was The Transmission Problem That A Lot Of People Were Having With Their Cars Not Wanting To Go In Reverse. The Car Just Out Of Nowhere Stopped Going In Reverse. This Was Just Abnormal For A Car With This Low Mileage. bmw Did Not Want To Take Responsibility For This, And It Was Just Crazy. I Was Very Disappointed By Their Business Tactic Of Not Taking Responsibility For This Defective Transmission. It Was Clearly Not Normal, Yet They Were Trying To Avoid To Pay For A Replacement, And They Didn’t Care As They Were Making So Many Enemies. I Never Cared For Mercedes As I Liked The Way bmw Drove, But This Experience Was Making Them Lose A Customer For Life. Please Make Them Issue A Recall For The Transmissions, And Stop This Business Behavior. *ak

On 8/707 I Noticed That I Could Not Shift My 2000 bmw323ci Into Reverse. No Prior Notice And No Engine Or Check Lights Came On. It’s Like Being In Neutral. The Engine Revs But There Is No Movement. In Another Instance I Was On A Hill And Tried To Back Up. When I Switched Into Reverse, The Car Rolled Forward!! The Problem Persists As Of Today 8/13/07. A Quick Search Of The Internet Reveals That This Problem Is Widespread (see Attached Links). bmw Recalled The 5 And 7 Series For This Reason But Did Not Recall The 3 Series (perhaps Because Too Many 3 Series Were Sold Compared To The 5 And 7 Series??). bmw Really Needs To Address This Problem Before Someone Is Seriously Hurt.

Like The Hundreds Of Others On The Consumer Affairs Website, My 2000 bmw 323i With 84k Miles Failed To Go Into Reverse. I Was At A Store And Proceeded To Back Out Of The Parking Space When The Car Would Not Go Into Reverse. There Were No Warnings – Ever. The Car Was Running Smoothly. I Had The Car Towed To bmw Of Arlington And Was Told That The Transmission Was Shot And The Cost Will Be $5,000 For A Remanufactured Transmission. I Decided To Check The Web And Was Astounded That There Were Hundreds Of bmw 2000 323i Owners With The Exact Same Problem. I Contacted bmw Of America Via Email And Was Given The Same Response As The Other Owners Of “normal Wear And Tear.” Many Owners Had Less Than 50,000 And bmw Is Not Owning Up To The Problem. Many Had Discovered That The Transmission Is A Gm Transmission And That Gm Issued A Recall On Its Vehicles Own Vehicles However bmw Had Not And Will Not Acknowledge The Problem, But Interestingly They Are No Longer Using These Transmissions. A Class Action Is Being Discussed And Rightly So. This Is A Rip Off Of Thousands Of Consumers And Definitely Is A Safety Issue. I Can See Someone Not Being Able To Back Up Off Of A Train Track, Etc. Please Issue A Recall. Thank You.

There Are Also Many Post On A Consumer Affairs Site About The Problems People Are Having. bmw Knows There Is A Problem But Will Not Do Anything. Below Are A Couple Of Websites About The Problem.

As Reported By Many, Many, Other bmw 323i Car Owners, I Too, Have Lost The Ability To Go In Reverse. Just Like The Complaints From People All Over The Internet Say, The Car Just Sits There When You Put It In Reverse, As If It’s In Neutral. You Can Rev The Engine, But You Go Nowhere. And Like The Others Mentioned, I’ve Called bmw, But Customer Relations Says They’re Not Aware Of Any Problem, And Won’t Assume Any Responsibility Since The Car Is Out Of Warranty. It Only Had 69,600 Miles On It When The Problem Occurred. A Local Dealership Said It Would Cost Thousands To Fix It, And Would Be Happy To Make Those Repairs After I Bring It In, And Pay Them $100 For The Diagnosis. I’ve Called 3 Different Auto Repair Shops And Each One Is Very, Very, Familiar With The Problem. One Shop Owner Said The 1999 And 2000 Model 323i‘s Had The Same Bad Transmission, And That He’s Repaired The Same Problem In Every One That Has Crossed His Path. Plus, Mechanics Have Told Me That bmw Has Come Up With An Updated Part To Make The Repair. So Why Would bmw Make A New Part If There Is No Such Problem? Plus, This Is Becoming A Safety Issue. I Had To Push My Car To Get Out Of A Parking Space, And It Nearly Ran Over Me. A Recall Should Be Issued Before Someone Gets Hurt If They Haven’t Already! *tr

I’ve Experience The Common No Reverse In My 323 bmw. The Car Has Been Running Great And After A Weekend Away I Go To Drive My Car And It Won’t Reverse. It Acts Like It Is In Neutral And Coasts. I Have Only Driven My Car Once Since Then And It Failed The 4 Times I Tried To Reverse. I Have Contacted My Local bmw Repair Shop And They Have Informed Me That I Need To Replace The Entire Transmission. After Some Researching I Have Discovered That Non bmw Repair Shops Have Been Able To Repair The Reverse Drum For $4,000 Less. This Apparently Is Common Defect That Needs To Be Recalled And Taken Care Of By bmw. Or They Should At Least Be Able To Repair The Reverse Drum And Not Make People Purchase A New Transmission So They Make More Money. I’m Sure There Are Plenty Of People Out There Paying For $5,000+ To Get A New Transmission When There Are Other Options Available That bmw Is Not Making An Option Through Their Dealerships Or Repair Shops. *tr

I Have A 2000 bmw 323i. This Is My Family’s Only Source Of Transportation. A Few Days Ago- It Quit Going In Reverse. I Took It To The Dealership. They Wanted Just Under $6,000.00 Usd To Replace It. The Car Is Only Work About $9,000.00. The Tech Said That This Is A Very Common Problem With This Car With This Transmission. After Doing Some Research- I Found Out I Wasn’t Alone. This Is The Number One Issue Among Many. I Normally Don’t Complain- But I Have A Family Of 4, A Wife, 7 Year Old Son, And A 8 Month Old Daughter- And Can Not Afford To Basically Pay What Would Be Almost What The Car Is Worth (i Could Buy Another Car For $6000). The Car Drives Perfect. It Just Will Not Go Into Reverse. I Have To Push It In Reverse-which I Can Do- However My Wife With An Eight Month Old Can Not. I Would Like The Nhtsa To Do Something About This Please. We Have No Money To Fix This. The Is An Obvious Problem That Many Have. *tr

I’ve Owned My 2000 bmw 323i For Over 5 Years Now (bought It Used) And It’s Been A Superb Car. I Maintained It Perfectly With Oil Changes On Time, And It Was In Pristine Condition. Despite My Attention To Detail, A Few Days Ago, The Reverse Simply Stopped Working. We Took It To Shop And They Said It Was Internal Transmission And It Happened A Lot With bmws Between 1999 And 2001, And bmw Didn’t Admit There Was A Problem. I Now Have To Pay A Lot Of Money To Get This Fixed And Am Very Upset With bmw Right Now. I Visited Several Sites Where People All Over The World Have Had The Same Problem As I, And bmw Doesn’t Admit The Problem. I’m Writing This So That bmw Can Persuade Me To Buy Another bmw In The Future As I Definitely Will Not Ever Buy Another One After This Incident. I”m Very Let Down With bmw And It’s Ultimate Driving Machine. *tr

After 105,000 Miles, The My 2000 bmw 323i Sports Wagon All Of A Sudden – And Without Any Warning – “lost” Its Reverse Gear. The Car Was Driven Carefully And Well-maintained. After Researching The Problem On The Internet, I Quickly Learned That There Are Thousands Or Other Consumers With Year 2000 3-series bmw Experiencing The Same Transmission Problems. Having The Transmission Replaced By A bmw Dealership Costs More Than $6,000. Apparently, A Design Flaw With The Zf Transmission (5hp19) Is To Blame For The Loss Of The Rear Gear, But bmw Denies Knowledge Of A Widespread Transmission Problem, Nor Do They Take Responsibility To Have The Faulty Transmissions Replaced – Under Whatever Kind Of Warranty. Since I Bought This Car Used 2.5 Years Ago, I Have No Chance To Hold bmw Or My Dealership Responsible, Or -at Least- Negotiate A More Acceptable Resolution Of The Zf 5hp19 Transmission Problem. *tr

I Did Call bmw At The Request Of My Mechanic To See What They Could Do For Me Without The Warranty. I Googled My Information And Was Shocked To Find That This Was An Ongoing Problem With My Year And Make Of The Car….even Some People Put The Date Of Purchase Such As 7/2000 Which Was My Exact Date. Odd That There Are So Many 323i‘s With The Same Problem……won’t Move In Reverse. The Gentleman At bmw Said He Heard Nothing Of This Problem And Would Do Some Research And Get Back To Me. He Did Within The Hour And Said No Such Problem Existed And Told Me It Would Cost Me $5800 For A New Transmission. There Has To Be Some Justice Done Here. These Companies Can Not Be Supplying Faulty Materials And Be Expecting The Consumer To Pick Up The Tab Because Of Their Sloppiness. I Feel Very Ripped Off By bmw Whom I Have Said Numerous Times That This Is One Of The Best Cars I Have Ever Owned…….i Now Know They Are Not Fair Players. They Should Fess Up To Their Mistakes. *tr
