2012 BMW X3 Long Term Road Test

2012 BMW X3: Ouch!

July 03, 2012


The other day Mike wrote about being able to manually adjust the thigh support in our BMW X3. To comfortably fit my shorter legs, I need the seat extender tucked all the way back in.

Last night, I couldn't get the plastic handle pictured above to move. I had to get out of the car and try it from a side angle. Then it finally shot back into the seat taking two of my fingers with it. I seriously thought I broke my finger tips. I almost fell to the ground in pain. It was like slamming my fingers in the door.

After the pain quieted down, I was able to determine that I did not break my fingers. But the nails on those two fingers almost lifted off.

It hurts to type this.
