I contacted the service center at BMW Roseville and left a message for the service manager, no return call. The vehicle has been inspected by an insurance authorized collision center and is considered totaled. There were no warning there was a problem and didn't appear until the collision happened and it didn't deploy.

NHTSA ID Number: 11438729
Consumer Location: MONT VERNON, NH
VIN: wby1z4c56gv****

Summary of Complaint

Previously reported a steering incident no. 11438343. Dealer indidicated that there was a "bug in the software" and that the car would be entitled to a one time fix under extended warranty. Dealership worked on the issue and completed the warranty repair on 11/28/2021 and I picked up the vehicle. Upon starting the car, the steering felt "different". I turned right to exit the dealership and tried to straighten the car but the steering turned full left and I crossed into the opposite lane of traffic. I stopped, turned the wheel to center, let it go and it turned full left on its own. I shut the car off, restarted and steering was normal. Drove back to the dealership for them to complete the repair. Dealership reported that this has occurred once for them but they cannot get it to repeat so they are going to keep the car for a few days. I am concerned that they will consider this an out of warranty repair because they were clear that they would offer a "one time fix" for the known issue.

VIN: WBY1Z4C55GV****

Summary of Complaint

EVERY 3 TO 21 DAYS, MY STEERING PULLS HARD TO THE LEFT. THIS OCCURS ON FLAT ROADS ON DRY PAVEMENT. I HAVE TO PULL THE STEERING WHEEL HARD TO THE RIGHT TO KEEP THE VEHICLE GOING STRAIGHT AT CITY DRIVING SPEEDS (0-35 MPH). ON ONE OCCASION THIS OCCURRED WHILE ON THE FREEWAY DRIVING AT 70 MPH. TIRE PRESSURES ARE ALL WITHIN SPEC AND TIRES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE. AFTER STOPPING AND RESTARTING THE CAR, IT SOMETIMES WILL GO AWAY. IN LOOKING AT THE BMW RECALLS AND TECHNICAL NOTES, THEY HAVE NO SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM AND CALL IT A SOFTWARE ISSUE. THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME AT LEAST 6 TIMES.

VIN: WBY1Z4C50GV****

Summary of Complaint

I WAS PULLING INTO MY DRIVEWAY IN THE MORNING AT AROUND 9:15 AM PREPARING TO PARK BMW I3 ELECTRIC VEHICLE IN TO THE GARAGE. I HAD MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND WAS WAITING FOR THE GARAGE DOOR TO OPEN. THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY BUT NOTICE THAT BRAKE WAS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY, MEANING THERE WAS NO FEELING OF VEHICLE WAS IN A LOCK POSITION DUE TO THE BRAKE BEING PRESSURED ON THE WHEEL. THEN ALL OF SUDDEN, THE VEHICLE WENT ACCELERATING OR "SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION". THE VEHICLE WENT THROUGH THE GARAGE DOOR THAT WAS ONLY HALF WAY UP AND WAS STILL GOING UP. THEN, THE VEHICLE CONTINUED ITS UNINTENDED ACCELERATION CRASH IMPACT TO THE REFRIGERATOR THAT WAS AGAINST THE BACK SIDE OF THE GARAGE WALL. THE IMPACT OF THE VEHICLE TO THE REFRIGERATOR AND THE WALL TOOK OUT ENTIRE BACK SIDE OF THE GARAGE WALL OF ABOUT 20 FEET WIDE X 8 FEET TALL WALL AND THREW OFF REFRIGERATOR 50FT TO THE GROUND LEVEL. THE VEHICLE STOP FROM THE IMPACT AND ALMOST HALF OF ITS BODY LENGTH WAS CANTILEVERING OFF THE EDGE OF THE BACK SIDE OF WALL. MY HOUSE IS BUILT ON ABOUT 35 DEGREE SLOPE AND THE VEHICLE WAS CANTILEVERED ABOUT 45 FEET FROM THE GROUND. THE POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS CALLED AND THEY WERE ABLE TO SAFELY BRING THE VEHICLE OFF THE EDGE AND THE VEHICLE WAS TOW TO THE LOCAL BMW DEALER WHERE I HAD IT LEASED. I MADE A REQUESTED TO THE LOCAL DEALER MANAGER IN PERSON NOT TO TEMPER WITH THE VEHICLE UNTIL ALL PARTIES THAT MAY HAVE INTEREST IN THIS CASE HAVE MADE THEIR INPUT ON IT. I'VE CALLED IN TO THE BMW NORTH AMERICA AND INFORMED THIS INCIDENT. I'VE REPORTED THIS INCIDENT TO MY HOME AND AUTO INSURANCE COMPANY. PLEASE REVIEW THIS CASE BECAUSE THE CONDITION THAT I AM REPORTING "SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION" DID HAPPEN AND IT WAS SUPER FAST! THE TOTAL DISTANCE THE VEHICLE TRAVELED FROM THE STATION POSITION TO IMPACT/STOP WAS ABOUT 50 FEET MAXIMUM, STANDARD GARAGE LENGTH PLUS ABOUT 10 FEET.
