Car exhaust rattles on start which is caused by a broken/loose exhaust flap
There is a failure in the door actuators that when happens prevents the door from being opened using the internal door lever and in some cases also affects the external handle. Not being able to open the door by pulling the internal or external levers may cause a safety issue in case of emergency (crash, flood, fire). Bmw is aware of this issue because lots of 3 series cars have failed and they have been repairing or replacing the defective parts in cars under warranty, but refuses to cover the expenses out of warranty period. Bmw na must take care of this problem despite the warranty period since it's a safety issue. Here is a video of the problem: https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=v7_ubsgjtqq
Passengers door failed to open. Has a two pull mechanism, first pull of the handle unlocks the door and second pull opens the door. Door would not open on second pull from the inside or outside. My wife was essentially stuck in the car. This is a severe safety issue in the event of an accident or other. This needs to be fixed by bmw permanently because many other people have reported this issue and have had the mechanism replaced only to have it happen again less than a year later. All this happening on cars less than 4 years old and less than 30k miles. I have never had a door lock issue on any car until now.
I have had two door lock actuators fail in my car. At best, this presents as a case where the door lock is physically slow to lock/unlock, or at worst, the passenger cannot open the door from inside. This could present a safety or other adverse situation when the passenger needs to exit the vehicle. This is a known failure point in the at least bmw f30 3 series models, as the web forums are littered with people experiencing similar issues. Bmw should recall these failed actuators. This is unacceptable in vehicles between 3-7 years old.

The vehicle was driven to the dealer (garlyn shelton bmw, 5700 sw h k dodgen loop, temple, tx 76504) where it was diagnosed that the fuel tank was fractured and needed replacement. The vehicle was in the process of being repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 51,000.
