Vacuum pump leaking oil into brake booster. Engine oil leaking into brake booster damaged master cylinder causing the car not to brake potentially causing a crash. We noticed the brakes not functioning correctly while driving on city streets.
When you apply the rear brake, the brake pedal gets mushy to the point it will not stop the vehicle
Front brake calipers leaking during vehicle rest periods since or before 20th august 2020. A large amount of brake reservoir has been consumed before noticing. This is a known condition as advised by the manufacturer as yet no fix has been implemented on this vehicle. Vehicle is currently stored at the dealer awaiting repair.
While driving, collision detection activates for no reason. Very random, sometimes just warning lights and sounds, and sometimes slamming on brakes at speed over 40 mph. No cars coming in other direction or any obstacles whatsoever. Weather clear. I almost got rear-ended once. Did not activate when fox ran in front of car. I can go weeks without this happening and then it comes out of the blue. It's in the shop for the third time for this complaint and service says they have no "error codes" and can't recreate the problem. Bmwusa told service to try to recreate the problem by driving it overnight. There's a 50/50 chance it will happen when they drive it, and there still won't be error codes! Bmw won't authorize any repair until they go through these steps. This has been on and off for at least 6 months. Date below was most recent occurrence. Obviously, obtaining any documentation of proof is impossible unless i have a camera crew on me all the time. It's terrifying and dangerous!
