Recently Purchased 2005 bmw z4, 40800 Miles, Exhibits Erratic Steering Control When Outside Temp Exceeds 85 Degrees. The Steering Wheel Responds As If Its Last Position Has A Grove Or Notch Requiring Excessive Force To Correct Or Set A New Direction. The Result Is The Car Lurches Down The Road From Side To Side. The Worst Is In Gradual Turns, The Steering Wheel Does Not Feed Back To Straight As The Car Continues Any Arc Once Set … The Car Tries To Drive Itself Off The Road. Discovery Or This “feature” Is Very Disappointing And Can Be Quite Scary. The Dealers Refusal To Address The Problem Is Proving Very Disappointing Also.

BMW Z4 Electrical System problems : 4.

On August 7, 2007 I Took My Car To Sterling bmw In Newport Beach, Ca Because I Noticed The Airbag Malfunction Lights Were On Along With Other electrical Issues. After They Had Inspected My Vehicle For Three Days I Was Informed That The Airbag/electrical Problem Would Not Be Covered By The bmw Factory Warranty, And The Service Department Recommended That I File A Claim With My Insurance Carrier. Obviously My Insurance Company Denied The Claim, Because Automobile Insurance Does Not Cover Loss Due To Wear And Tear, Mechanical Or electrical Breakdown/failure. In Addition, Sterling bmw Charged Me $260.00 For The Loaner Car They Provided For The Three Days While My Car Was Being Inspected. Sterling bmw Gave Me A Verbal Estimate Of Approximately $10,000.00 In Additional Work Needed To Repair All The electrical/airbag Issues. When I Took The Car To Irvine bmw For Another Estimate, They Advised Me That They Could Take Care Of The Problem, However After Three Days I Was Again Informed That They The Airbag/electrical Problem Would Not Be Covered Under The Warranty. I Moved To California About One Year Ago And Purchased This Vehicle On From Excalibur Imports In Studio City, Ca On March 28, 2006. Although My Previous Vehicle Was A Mercedes Benz, I Decided To Purchase A bmw And Benefit From The Extraordinary Customer Service Of bmw. This Is, In Fact, My First Experience With bmw. I Have Always Taken Excellent Care Of My Car; It Has Always Been Garaged, And Maintained By bmw Dealers. I Have Always Use Premium Gas To Ensure Quality Of Performance And Maintenance. To My Regret, I Have Been Driving This Car For Over A Year Without Airbag Protection. The Nature Of My Job Requires Me To Commute Over 100 Miles Per Day On The Freeway. Please Be Advised That My Family And I Are Extremely Worried About The Risks That I Am Taking Because Of bmw‘s Failure To Properly Maintain My Vehicle. I Am A Single Mother Of Three And Find I Am Now Afraid Of Driving Because Of The Consequences Of An Acid. *tr

Bought The 2005 Z-4 bmw Used From A Dealer In High Point Nc. Drove It And Enjoy Driving Until The Warm Weather. The Steering Sticks To A Point Of Being Dangerous. To Compensate, I Steer To The Left And Car Pulls To The Left Then I Bring The Steering Back Towards The Center And Feel It Sticking So I Compensate By Steering To The Right. The Whole Time Down The Highway I Fear For My Life Driving This Car. I Really Had To Concentrate To Keep The Car From Steering Off The Road And I’m Sure It Appears I’m Driving Erratically To Others On The Road. The Warm Weather Will Soon Be Here In North Carolina And I’m Just Scared To Drive It. The Car Otherwise Is Beautiful. But If I’m Going To Be A Repeat Customer To The bmw Line I Need To Get This Fixed Or They Should Recall It And I Don’t Feel That I Should Have To Pay For This Problem And Sounds Like Many Many Others Have Had The Exact Same Problem From What My Research Shows Me. Please Help Before Someone Is Killed. Seriously I’m Scared ! I Contacted bmw In Ohio And They Need Me To Validate The Problem Through A Dealer Which I Will Do But I Have To Wait Til The Weather Is Warm Again. Luckily I Am Employed And Will Be Able To Pay The $125.00 Diagnostic Fee. *tr The Consumer Also Stated Every Time She Rode Over A Bump In The Road, The Radio Would Shut Off And Then Come Back On At Random Times.
