BMW 540IA Power Train Automatic Transmission problems : 2.
After Approximately 75,000 Miles On My bmw 540i, The Transmission Will Not Go Into Reverse. The Dealer Says It Has Internal Slippage/damage And Will Have To Be Replaced With A Remanufacuted One. I Found Out That This Is A Common Problem With bmw – See Http://www.consumeraffairs.com/automotive/bmw_trans.html For Testimony Of Lots Of Other bmw Owners Who Lost Reverse. It Surprises Me That bmw Doesn’t Warranty Their Transmissions/drivetrain As Long As The “lower Quality” American And Asian Vehicle Makers Do. But If The Tranny Routinely Quits Around The 60-80k Mile Mark, I Guess It’s A Smart Business Decision For bmw! *tr
