ON MAY 03, 2019, I BOUGHT A 2019 BMW X4 M40I, AT BRAMAN MOTORCARS. THIS IS NOT MY FIRST BMW, WE HAVE 3 MORE BMWS AT HOME. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS BMW X4 VEHICLE HAS NOT PERFORMED WELL AS EXPECTED! ON MAY 27, 2020 I WAS DRIVING WHILE IT WAS RAINING WHEN THE CAR SUDDENLY STOPPED AND NEVER TURNED ON AGAIN, IT WAS COMPLETELY USELESS AND VERY DISSATISFYING. I AM VERY FRUSTRATED AND DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I SENT THE CAR TO BRAMAN BMW SERVICE CENTER TO CHECK IT OUT AND REQUEST THE WARRANTY AND THEY SAID THAT THE WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER IT THE SOLUTION IS JUST TO PAY MORE THAN $30,000.00 IN REPAIR PLUS PARKING FEES. ALSO, MY INSURANCE CARRIER SAID MY POLICY DOES NOT COVER MECHANICAL ISSUES. ALSE SENT A LETTER ASKING FOR HELP TO BMW CEO AND THEY RESPONDED THAT THE WARRANTY DO NOT COVER " OUTSIDE INFLUENCES". SO THIS GRABAGES CAR CANT BE IN A RAIN. SO NOW I HAVE MORE THAN 1 AND HALF MONTHS WITHOUT THE CAR, ALSO CALLED BMW FINANCIAL SERVICES FOR HELP AND THE SOLUTION WAS THAT I CAN RETURN THE CAR SIGNING A VOLUNTARY REPO DAMAGING MY CREDIT HISTORY. ATTACHED TO THIS EMAIL YOU WILL FIND COPIES OF THE DENIAL OF THE WARRANTY AND THE ESTIMATE THAT BRAMAN BMW SENT ME, TO REPAIR THE CAR, WHICH BY THE WAY IS ABSURD! WAITING FOR YOU HELP, CHRISTIAN CANACHE

The speedometer is inaccurate. Bmw told me that they have a directive which states that it is normal for a speedometer to be off by up to 7mph. They told me it is impossible to recalibrate. I do not know my true speed which is dangerous and makes it difficult to know if i am driving within posted limits. It also adds false mileage to my vehicle as it always indicates a speed higher than i am actually maintaining.

2017 BMW 530I
Parts: UNKNOWN OR OTHER
  • Date of Incident: Jun-25, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 02:09 Jul-04, 2020

I was driving on a clear day on a nearly straight 4 lane surface road when someone pulled out in front of me. Where the collision avoidance would normally give warning and interfere, the car instead issued an alert that the system was unavailable. It was a clear day, the sensors were unobstructed, and the road had nothing about it that should be a problem for the systems. The accident was able to be avoided, but a critical safety system only indicated a fault right when it was needed. The dealership were unable to find a fault and blamed it on light blinding the camera.
