Summary of Complaint

BMW IS USING INFERIOR PARTS AND METAL. I RECENTLY HAD ENGINE WORK COMPLETED BECAUSE THE TRANSMISSION HEAT EXCHANGE IS FAULTY AND STAYS OPEN WHICH OVERHEATS THE VEHICLE'S ENGINE. THE SERVICE MANAGER AT OTTO'S BMW TOLD ME THAT IF THE HEAT EXCHANGE IS OPEN IT CAN SEIZE THE ENGINE. TO REPAIR THIS IT COST $1802.74 AND THIS SHOULDN'T HAPPEN TO A BMW. I HAD HAD BMWS IN THE PAST AND NO ENGINE WAS EVER A PROBLEM UNTIL NOW. THEY SHOULD BE REPRIMANDED FOR THESE LATENT DEFECTS. I WAS RIDING AND THE LIGHT FOR THE ENGINE WENT ON AND IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT IT TO OTTO'S BMW. THE CAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN MAINTAINED BUT THIS COSTLY REPAIR SHOULD BE PAID BY BMW-USA. THESE CARS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE HIGH END VEHICLE THAT CAN LAST FOR OVER 175K MILES. NOT THIS VEHICLE. IT IS PROBLEMATIC AND THERE ARE TWO CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS OUT THERE REGARDING THIS EXACT PROBLEMS. BMW MUST BE FINED AND MAKE GOOD ON THESE PROBLEMS. ANYTHING LESS WE THE CONSUMER GETS COMPROMISED.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN I AM COMING TO A STOP SIGN, THE ENGINE REVS UP AND MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO STOP. I NEED TO APPLY THE BRAKES VERY HARD TO AVOID HITTING ANOTHER CAR OR PERSON IN A CRESS WALK. EVEN WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES HARD, THE CAR WILL LURCH FORWARD. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO TWO DIFFERENT BMW DEALERS MULTIPLE TIMES OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS AND THEY CANNOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG. THEY TEST DRIVE THE CAR, BUT BECAUSE THE PROBLEM IS SPORADIC AND MAY ONLY OCCUR ONCE A MONTH, IT DOES NOT DO IT WHEN THEY TEST DRIVE THE CAR.

Summary of Complaint

THIS COMPLAINT IS A FOLLOW-UP TO EARLIER COMPLAINT TO NHTSA 11129293. AS NOTED, I EXPERIENCED 3 REVVING INCIDENTS IN WHICH THE ENGINE ACCELERATED UNCONTROLLABLY TO OVER 7,000 RPM AND WAS DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. FORTUNATE, THE VEHICLE WAS STOPPED ON EACH OCCASION AND DID NOT SURGE AHEAD WHILE I PRESSED FIRMLY ON THE BRAKE AND SHIFTED TO NEUTRAL. THE REVVING STOPPED ON ITS OWN AFTER A SHORT TIME. IN EACH INSTANCE I DELIVERED THE VEHICLE TO A BMW DEALERSHIP--THE FIRST TIME IN SARASOTA, FL AND THEN TWICE IN ROCKVILLE, MD--AND BMW MECHANICS WERE UNABLE TO FIND ANY CAUSE OR FLAW. FOLLOWING THE THIRD EVENT, BMW OF NORTH AMERICA DESPATCHED AN ENGINEER TO ROCKVILLE FOR A COMPLETE EXAM ON OCTOBER 4, 2018. THE ENGINEER REPORTED THE VEHICLE TO BE IN PERFECT RUNNING CONDITION IN EVERY RESPECT. BASED ON THIS REPORT, BMW NA REFUSED MY REQUEST TO TERMINATE MY LEASE EARLY, WITHOUT PENALTY. IT ALSO DISMISSED MY PERSONAL VIEW THAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE A SOFTWARE GLITCH THAT THE ENGINEER OR BMW MECHANICS HAD BEEN UNABLE TO UNCOVER OR DUPLICATE. AS MY WIFE AND I WERE UNWILLING TO DRIVE A CAR ON PUBLIC ROADS THAT WE CONSIDERED TO HAVE A LIFE-THREATENING DEFECT, WE SUBMITTED TO BMW'S DEMAND THAT WE PAY OFF IN A LUMP SUM THE REMAINING TWO YEARS OF OUR LEASE THROUGH SEPTEMBER OF 2020, AMOUNTING TO OVER $17,000. BMW'S POLICY OF REFUSING TO ACCEPT RESPOSIBILITY FOR REVVING PROBLEMS UNDOUBTEDLY FORCES SOME DRIVERS TO KEEP DRIVING POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS VEHICLES, RISKING PUBLIC SAFETY. I AM ALSO APPALLED AT THE LIKELIHOOD THAT BMW HAS LEASED OR RESOLD THE SAME VEHICLE, THEREBY PROFITING TWICE FOR THE PERIOD OF MY TERMINATED LEASE, WHILE FAILING TO REVEAL THE CAR'S HISTORY OF REVVING TO THE NEW OWNER/DRIVER. I HAVE DOCUMENTS SUCH AS THE BMW ENGINEER'S REPORT, EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE WITH BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, ETC. UNETHICAL
