Back up camera cuts off when in reverse all the time
Doors locks have a double pull feature where the first pull will unlock the door and the second pull will allow the door to open. The first pull will occasionally fail to unlock the door lock mechanism. The failure permanently prevents the door from opening unless the operator presses the door lock/unlock button, located on the center dash, multiple times.
Intermittently unable to open the driver side door when pulling the interior door handle when the door is locked, due to the bowden cable becoming twisted you are unable to open the door without using the center unlock button. In the event of a fire or the battery being dead you'd have to use the passenger door. There was a tsa from bmw on this issue for a limited set of vehicle, see below, that i feel need to be expanded to a recall regarding the potential safety issue since in researching this issue it appears to effect more vehicles then are listed in the tsb. Tsb 51 26 15, dated sep 1, 2015 describes the problem when the bowden cable malfunctions in cold weather. Rerouting of the cable is recommended. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this in more detail, [xxx]. Thanks, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). *tr

When the vehicle is stationary, and the engine is not operating, the "double-pull" operation to unlock the door malfunctions intermittently and without warning or notice. This is a recurring problem with many vehicles across multiple product offerings (both series and year) within the brand.

Improper plating on fuel pump may result in stall - which it happened to me on the highway. Called bmw and they said no recall on my car, but when you look up a 2015 435i, it shows it has that recall. Bmw wanted to charge me for a diagnostic, when i feel they should take it as a recall. My first problem with bmw, and they don't seem to care.
This car went in front of me and would break fast trying to make me crash into him, he had lots of kids in the car and i don't know why he is putting them into that kind of risk, i am worried about them because i do not think the person driving is in his right mind, maybe he was intoxicated. Please check up on this family and file a report on this man. Thank you
Hvac blower/fan motor, while working for a while after startup, stops working after about 45 minutes of driving.
With no evidence of foreign object damage, sunroof exploded on a clear freeway at freeway speed. Interior temp 74f, ambient 93f. Sunshade was closed, but glass fragments leaked through the vent holes in the sunshade. Paint damage to trunk. Potential safety hazard to other motorists. Of note the glass is tempered, not laminated, hence the elevated potential for injury and damage.
I was driving my vehicle in dallas, tx and multiple times the car engine & all power shut off, and the car shifted itself into neutral. I suspect there is an issue with the auto stop/start feature or something more. A car should never shift itself into reverse when you are driving. Both times almost caused an accident on the freeway as the car came to a sudden halt and i had no control with it shifting into n. The bmw dealership & bmw are claiming nothing is wrong. I do not feel comfortable accepting this vehicle back until this issue is resolved and feel the government should look into any issue of a vehicle automatically shifting into n and powering down while driving.
I was traveling west on sc 153 ,unit 2 was traveling north on i85 exit ramp. Driver unit 2 failed to yield the right of way proceedings across sc 153,causing his f-250 2002. Causing the front of his vehicle to strike the left side of me. Ran off the road into a gas station. My side airbags came but my front airbags didn't come. My side mirror flew in and hit my son in the head. If my airbag would have came son wouldn't got hit
The engine vehicle power died down while driving in the middle of the road , this occurs 4 to 5 times within 20 minutes time duration, i have to put the car emergency lights on for 4 separate times within 20 minutes duration ,and almost got hit by the cars from behind the vehicle. Prior to this incident, about 2 weeks ago, the driver side mirror was not working ,for over 5 minutes i was trying to adjust the mirror through the controls but mirror was not responding and unable to do so, while i was merging the freeway, i cannot see the truck behind me while merging the busy freeway, and almost got hit by the truck. Roseville bmw was unable to diagnose any problems with vehicle and they want me to take back the car to drive. I don't feel safe driving this car again, i'm requesting a new safe working car , roseville, ca bmw refused to provide another vehicle as replacement for this defective car. And now, this problem is being reported to bmw of north america corporate office, hopefully, bmw north america corporate office is taking care of the problem and their customer needs for safety on the roads.
