I Was The Previous Owner Of A bmw 325i That I Have Been Told Needs A New Transmission. Age – 2003, Miles 60,000. It’s Unacceptable That A Car With So Low Miles, Has Been Maintained And Driven Gently Has Experienced This Problem. After Searching On The Web, I Find That This Is A Recurring Problem With bmw‘s. Why Has Nothing Been Done? How Can bmw Say This Is Not Their Issue When Clearly This Is A Problem With Their Cars. I’m Spending An Additional 6,000 On This Car. I Recently Purchased A Brand New bmw And Sold The 325 To A Close Friend. I Replaced The Transmission As I Could Not Expect Them To Pay For It. Prior To The Sale, The Car Checked Out With bmw. Little Did I Know 2 Wks Later It Would Have This Problem Which Appears To Be A Standard Problem With bmw. I Regret That I Bought A New One. *tr
