I Tried Starting My Car And It Would Not Start. Figured It Was A Dead Battery So I Bought A New One And Had It Replaced. The Car Worked Fine For About 3 Days Then Had The Same Problem As Before. I Contacted The Dealer, Had To Have The Car Towed To Them, And Was Told That It Was The Connections From The Battery To The Engine That Were Loose And Causing The Car To Not Start. I Picked Up My Car The Next Day After Paying $120 To Have The Problem (wiggling Some Wires) Fixed. 2 Days Later…same Problem. It Has Been Sitting Now For Over 2 Weeks Because I Haven’t Had Time To Keep Getting It To And From The Dealership. After Reading All Of These Other Reported Problems I Am Now Terrified To Drive It Ever Again. *tr

I’m A Retired U.s. Naval Officer Who Currently Works In Fort Detrick, Maryland. I Was On My Way To Work When All Of A Sudden The Engine Stalled Without Warning At About 45 Mph On A Busy Rush Hour Freeway In I-270 North. Immediately I Turned On The Emergency Lights And Made Every Effort To Make It To The Left Shoulder With A Stalled (dead) Engine. The Car Behind Me Immediately Noticed The Problem And Slowed Down, As Well As The Other Cars Behind Him. My Car Came To A Complete Stop With Half Of The Body Still In The Freeway. I Was Shaking Due To Safety Concerns, But When I Shifted The Gear To “park” And Pushed The “start” Button, Immediately The Car Started With No Problem At All. On A Separate Occasion About Four Months Ago, My Son Was Driving The Car On A One-lane Road At About 30 Mph. Without Warning The Engine Stalled Again And There Wasn’t Any Shoulder He Can Safely Turn To Because Of A Concrete Pavement. The Cars Behind Stopped To Help Him Move To The Side As Much As Possible, But When He Shifted To “park” And Pushed “start”, The Car Immediately Started Without Anything Wrong With It. I Am Filing This Complaint Due To The Recent Recall You Have Identified For bmw 3-series 2007 Coupe. bmw Will Not Fix My Problem Even Though It Is Very Identical To The Nhtsa’s Identified Recall, Due To The Reason That My Car Was Manufactured On November 6, 2006 And Did Not Meet The Recall Requirement Of March 2007 Through July 2011. They Want Me To Pay For The Expensive Repair. I Am Asking For Your Help In Extending The Dates To Cover My Car (it Was On It’s Very Early Stage Of Production). My Car Has Not Been Modified At All And Is Still All Original Specification. I’m Not Sure When The Next Occurence May Happen. If It Involves A Fast Freeway Commute, There Is A Very Big Possibility That Our Lives Could Be In Danger. I Need Your Help For Our Safety And Will Not Buy bmw Anymore. *tr

Car Has Horrible Lifter Ticking Noise. Started Around 58k Miles, Now Up To 61k. bmw Knows About This Issue And Have Even Went As Far As Issuing A New (revision In 2009) Service Bulletin And Redesigning The Head And Lifters. They Don’t Want To Issue A Recall Notice For Their Own Design Flaw Because Of The Cost Associated With Replacing These Parts. I Change The Oil Every 3k Miles And Have Been Noticing Ferrous Metal Flakes In The Filter Caused By The Lifters Being Starved Of Oil Due To The Oil Ports In The Head Being Too Small To Allow Adequate Oil Flow To Them. One Would Expect A bmw To Last A Little Bit Longer Than 60k Miles Before Any Issues Like This Arise. *tr

On August 31st, I Was Driving On The Freeway In The Number 2 Lane At 70 Mph When The Temperature Overheat Light Came On And I Experienced An Immediate Loss Of Power And Was Forced To Navigate The Vehicle Across Several Busy Lanes To The Shoulder. I Allowed The Vehicle To Cool Down, Added Some Water And I Attempted To Drive The Vehicle To The Closest Dealer 5 Miles Away. Upon Entering The Freeway Again The Vehicle Immediately Experienced The Same Symptoms And I Was Forced To Tow The Vehicle To The Local Dealership. I Was Told On September 3rd, The Electric Water Pump Had Failed. The bmw Dealership Quoted $1332.00 To Repair. Upon Further Research It Is Apparent That This Is A Common Issue With The bmw‘s Right After The Vehicle Falls Outside Of Warranty. This Loss Of Power Is A Serious Safety Issue As This Incident Occurred Without Warning And At High Speed With Heavy Traffic. Due To The Nature Of This Loss Of Power And The Common Occurrence I Would Recommend A Recall Or An Extended Warranty To Be Issued For This Known Problem. *jb
