On September 16,2009 I Was Involved In An Auto Collision In My 2007 bmw 525i Series. I Was Stopped At A Freeway Exit Off The 405 S. Where Suddenly A Vehicle That Was Doing A Speed Of No Less Of 50-60 Mph Collided Into The Back Drivers Side Passenger Door Which Resulted Me To Be Pushed Forward At Least 75-100 Feet. The Force And Impact Of The Other Vehicle Was So Severe, That Is Caused The Other Vehicle To Flip Over Multiple Times And Land About 100 Yards Away From Impact. With Such An Impact And The Speed Of The Other Car Without Hitting Their Breaks At All, You Would Think That Not Only The Front Driver, Passenger, Or Rear Passenger airbags (especially That Was Were The Impact Was) That The airbags Would Deploy. That Is Not The Case. No airbags Deployed And This Is A Major Concern. I Am Very Lucky That I Only Suffered Injuries And Not Death And That Goes For The Passenger In The Car With. I Am Also Thankful That I Did Not Have My 5 Month Old Baby In The Backseat. If She Was Is The Backseat She Would Have Not Her Life Because No air Bag Deployed. I Was Made Aware That Over 200,000 bmw Were Recalled For Models Of 2005-2006. Apparently bmw Has Not Resolved The Issue For 2007 And Possibly 2008 Or 2009. This Is A Serious Matter And Must Be Looked Into. Please Take My Email Seriously And To The Heart Because No One Should Lose A Life Due To Incompetence Of A Major Auto Manufacturer Especially When There Seems To Be A Recall To Previous Years And Exact Models. I Do Not Believe bmw Is Making The Necessary Corrections Or Adjustments To This Defect Which May Cause Unnecessary Injuries And/or Deaths. I Would Like To Hold bmw Accountable For This Issue And Would Like To Be Advised On What Steps I Must Take For bmw To Take This Seriously And Make Things Right. *tr

I Want To Express My Disappointment At The Lack Of Urgency Shown By bmw In Addressing My Concerns With Regards To The Recall Issued Due To Malfunctioning Of The Front air Bag Seat Occupancy Sensor Mat. My Car Had This Problem In Mid Dec 2013, Just Before The Recall Notice Was Issued. Since This Malfunction Was Safety Related, I Rushed To Get The Car Repaired Immediately. My Local bmw Dealer Did Not Have The Sensor Module Available; Therefore, I Had To Get The Repair Done From The Certified bmw Service Professional Where I Incurred An Expense Of $851.84. I Have Been Following Up With bmw Since January To Get Paid For This Repair And Have Made Repeated Calls (on Dates 3/26, 4/15, 6/9) But Every Time I Get Told That I Have To Wait To Get This Payment. Unfortunately, I Have Run Out Of Patience. How Can You Make Your Loyal Customers Go Through This Disgraceful ?run Around?? When I Purchased A bmw, I Signed For High Levels Of Quality And Customer Service. The Company Has Failed Me On Both Counts. I Have Lost Patience And Want Everyone To Know About This Sub Par Service Provided By bmw. *js

BMW 525I Structure problems : 1.

I Was Driving Through A Canyon Area, And Water Spilled Out Of My Ice Chest Into The Trunk Bay, Where The Spare Tire Is Stored. Apparently The Entire Cars Computer And Wiring Is Underneath The Spare Tire. The Water Fried My Tire Pressure Monitor Module, Which Caused The Computer To Restart. When It Restarted, The Car Showed A Car Computer Failure. The Car Has Safety Features Such As Stability Control, And Many Other Safety Modules Connected To The Computer. The Cars Computer, Inside Lights, Gauges, And All My Systems Completely Restarted Every 30-45 Seconds, Causing The Car To Be A Dangerous Toy. I Had To Drive Down The Mountain Without Any Safety Features On My Car Turned On, Which Made It Hard To Control. It Was Very Unstable Driving, All Because Of A Tire Pressure Monitor Module Going Out. I Spent Over $55k On This Vehicle, I Don’t Think Getting A Small Amount Of Water In My Trunk Would Cause So Much Damage. The Module Cost Me $1,800 To Replace, As Well As A $600 Upcharge To Move The Computer To The Side Of The Trunk, And $560 For The Wiring Harness. $2,960 In Damage From Water Spilling In My Wheel Well.
