Parts: ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

  • Date complaint filed: 21:01 Oct-03, 2020

Vehicle is saying chassis stabilization error which i believe is the same as dynamic stabilization. I did some research and have found my make year and model was recalled for the specific problem. The bmw dealership near me is requesting 2,500$ to fix this problem when it is suppose to be free of charge. While i started my vehicle one morning the light came on. It was not while i was driving. It first says initializing stabilization and then it says malfunction.

I purchased pirelli p zero summer sports 245/40 in the rear and drove about 300 miles since, and they look worn-out and the car slips pretty bad in the rain. Just after purchasing the tires on a rainy day on the highway my car spun out almost ran into the median. Who would have thought that brand new tires would wear out so quickly that it would become slick in 100-200 miles with normal driving, no track, no racing? Pirelli or discount tire is not taking this safety concern seriously and is only stalling. I have called 6-7 times and they keep telling me to contact the discount tire, and discount tire says i need to call pirelli for manufacture defects. *tr *bf
