While Driving My Car On The Road My Engine Automatically Placed Itself On Neutral, The Steering Froze, And The Engine Turned Off. After Turning The System Off, I Turned It Back On And Drove Away Normally. Once I Approached The A Stop Light The Car Did The Same Thing Again But This Time It Had A Cracking-rattling Noise Coming From The Engine. Without Any Warnings Or Check Engine Light, Oil Light, My Car Suffered From Broken Main And Rod Bearings As Stated By The bmw Dealer. This Has Caused A Lot Of Metallic Debris Throughout The Engine Causing Engine Failure.

The Car Was Parked At A Flat Space Parking Lot. When I Tried To Open The Vehicle Using A Fob Key, The Alarm Started To Go Off. I Was Not Able To Access The Vehicle Other Than Using A Key Blade To Open The Door Manually, However All System Was Dead. I Have Replaced The Fob Key Battery, Checked The Battery Status, And Ran The Error Code System, But Everything Was Fine. After Some Research, I’ve Found Out That There Is A Recall On The Similar Models (bmw 3 Series) For A Fuse Box – Battery Connection Issue. And Giving A Good Press Towards The Fuse Box Located In The Glove-box Did Fix The Problem Temporarily, However The Issue Has Kept Happening Since Then. 3 Series Manufactured March 2007 Through July 2011 Have Been Recalled During The Nhtsa Campaign Id Number: 13v044000. My Model, m3, Uses The Same Design And Same Parts As 328i And 335i For The Fuse Box And Battery Connection, And The Same Issue Has Been Occurred Several Times Not Just To Me But To Other m3 Models, But This Model For Some Reason Has Not Been Included The Previous Recall Campaign.

Takata Recall bmw Notified Us In March 2016 That It Was Doing A Recall. Since Then They Have Not Contacted Us. I Sent Them And Email Today And Got An Automated Response Saying, In Essence, They Would Get To It Some Time In The Future. Given The Danger And Risk Involved A Six Month (and Probably Much Longer) Wait For A Repair Is Unreasonable And Inconsisent With The Law., Please Urge Them To Move Forward.

2010 E92 55k Miles (88k Km) The Car Is Unmodified. The Car Has A Full Service History. The Vehicle Never Tracked – Almost All Travel During My Ownership Were Highway Miles (23k). The Cause Of The Incident Was A Failure Of The Number 1 Rod Bearing. The Incident Occurred On A Wet Single Lane Road In Poor Weather. I Was Lucky To Avoid An Accident When Vehicles Following Me Were Caught Unawares By My Unexpected Deceleration. The Was Little Opportunity To Pull Over To The Side Of The Road With Safety Due To The Conditions. I Lost Power Steering And Power Brakes Which Made The Car More Difficult To Control.

The Oem Wiring Insulation In The Headlight Housing Has Flaked Off. The Bare Wires Caused An electrical Short When I Replaced A Light Bulb. bmw Says That The Only Repair Is To Replace The Entire Housing For $2100. This Will Need To Be Done On The Other Side Eventually, As The Insulation Is Deteriorating In That Housing As Well. I Have Read Online That This Is A Common Problem In Many Different Models Because Of The Type Of Wiring That Was Specified By bmw Just Does Not Hold Up Under Higher Temperatures. Knowing That It Will Be Subject To Higher Temperatures In The Engine Compartment Is A Design Oversight And Will Lead To Dangerous Malfunctions When Operating The Vehicle. It Is Just A Matter Of Time.

2009 BMW M3 Power Train Manual Transmission problems & defects.

BMW M3 Power Train Manual Transmission problems : 1.

Hello. I Have A 2009 bmw m3 With The Dct Transmission. I Am Experiencing Significant Delays When Down Shifting From One Gear To A Lower Gear. The Problem Occurs When You Slow Down, Like For A Turn, But Do Not Come To A Complete Stop. The Dct Transmission Seems To Have A Serious Problem Figuring Out What Gear To Select Because When You Step On The Gas To Accelerate, There Is A Very Significant Delay In The power Engaging. I Would Say About 2-4 Seconds. By This Time, I Am Really Stepping On The Gas Pedal. The Transmission Finally Picks A Gear, Which Results In The Car Suddenly Lurching Forward, Sometimes Engaging The Anti-skip Control. This Problem Becomes Most Apparent When Making A Turn Into On-coming Traffic, Slowing Down To Around 10-15 Mph. After The Turn, The Car Is Positioned In The Traffic Lane, But I Have No power To Accelerate Into The Flow Of Traffic. The Oncoming Cars Are Now Closing In On Your Car At A Fast Rate, And You’re Basically Stuck. *tr
