BMW 745I Service Brakes problems : 3.
I Am The Owner Of A 2004 bmw 745i. I Received A Letter In November 2010 From bmw Stating That There Was Recall On Brake Vacuum Pump. On November 11 2010 Before Receiving This Recall Letter. I Had Repairs Done To My Brake Vacuum Pump. When I Called bmw To Get My Money Refunded They Basically Told Me “it Was Different.” I Was Charged Over 6,000 Dollars For This service. I Have Spoken To Several People And Was Given Different Numbers To Try To Get My Money Back And Have Been Unsuccessful. I Also Noticed On A February 2011 St. Pete Times Issue bmw Was Fined $3million Dollars For Delaying Recalls. I Have All Documentations To Support My Argument To Include The Article Of The St. Pete Times. *tr
