My Subframe Is Damage Underneath The Rear Carrier. I Noticed When I Was Driving I Heard A Loud Knock In The Back. It Sounded So Bad I Went Into An Auto Shop To Have It Checked Out. They Said It Was A Recall And To Take It To The Dealer. So I Went To The Dealer And They Said It Was Not A Recall But A Class Action Suit. Meaning They Would Repair It But I Had To Come Up With A Vehicle For 2 Weeks While They Repaired It. I Can’t Afford The Rental, So They Let Me Drive Off With My Vehicle In Very Very Poor Condition. I Have Heard Of The Subframe Being An Issue With My Car And Was Wondering If It Were A Problem, Why Haven’t It Made The Recall List. It Will End Up Killing Someone If It’s Not Taken Care Of. Specially If A Dealer Is Letting Me Take It Back Because They Can’t Afford To Give Me A Loaner Car For Two Weeks While It Is Getting Fixed (because It Isn’t A Recall They Implied). So Here I’m Complaining To You, Were I Hope God Somehow Touches You Enough To Make A Few 100,000 People Much Safer By Making This A Recall. For It Surly Is Unsafe As Said By Many Mechanics (even The Dealer Ships Mechanic Said It Was Unsafe To Drive It). But Because I Can’t Afford A Rental With A New Baby, And Many Bills… I’m Still Driving This 2000 bmw 323i And I Will Until I Can Either Afford The Two Week Rental Or Someone Helps My Situation. All Parts Are Available, And Would Be Replaced By The Dealer At Their Expense (in Other Words. A Big Cover-up). But Because It Isn’t A Recall, They Let Me Drive Away Because They Wouldn’t Give Me A Rental In Replace Of The Failed bmw…. I Have The Inspection Copy From Dealer Stating Below; Campaign Subframe Recall Is Due Damage Found Underneath Rear Carrier, Requires Bodyshop Attention. If They Are Calling It A Recall Then Why Isn’t It On The Recall List? And If It Went To A Class Action Lawsuit, And Lost… Why Is It Still Not A Recall If Its Happening To Many Of These Cars, And A Very Big Danger While Driving? Something Needs To Be Done! *tr

Have Been Informed By My Mechanic That My Subframe Is Failing On The Rear End Of My bmw. He Pulled A Report Saying That A Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against bmw But No Recall Had Been Issued (i.e, A ‘silent’ Recall). His Words: “man You’re Totally Screwed.” My Reading Of The Lawsuit Is That There Was A Limited Time To Seek Redress From bmw; Having Just Found Out About The Problem, I’m Having A Hard Time Imagining How Something That Apparently Is Epidemic In 3-series bmws And Can Cause Catastrophic Failure (in One Case, Apparently Locking Up The Brakes And Causing The Car To Come To A Screeching Halt) Has Not Resulted In A Recall Of Model With Mandatory Repairs! Again, I’m Not A Lawyer But My Reading Of The Document My Mechanic Showed Me Seems To Reveal An Enormous Dodge By bmw In Limiting The Time Frame During Which One Can Have Them Repair The Problem! My Internet Search This Weekend Shows That There Are Many Others With The Same Complaint, People Describing Loss Of Control Of Their Cars, Etc., And Of Course I’m Not In The Drive This Thing Anymore. It Seems The Serious Nature Of Potential Problems And Obvious Defect In Manufacturing Should Warrant Some Sort Of Mandatory Redress By The Manufacturer. (my Car Has Never Been Used In Racing Or Extreme Activities, Just Highway Driving, Mostly For Commute.) Had I Not Asked Him To Check The Cause Of The Squeaking In The Rear, My 1st Notice Of This Could Well Have Been A Loss Of Control Of The Vehicle. *tr
