ReviewI trusted BMW to stand for quality. Who needs (7) year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty those are for compromised American brands or new Korean ones without a track record. O boy!
I was wrong to learn that BMW does not give a crap about quality and customers.
With a car just out of the 50,000 mile warranty failing the transmission is normal thing you are on your own.
Best FeaturesSo here is my case 2008 328xi with 54,000 miles stopped going in reverse. Call BMW north America and per advise took it to the dealer (BMW Bloomfield NJ). After 2 days of working with BMW Noth America engineers (by themselves they had no idea of what to do) and $465.99 they find the problem : (Manual Valve Rod In Transmission Broken) Repair cost $1,442.46. Raising hell at BMW North America (800) 831-1117 with an agent Shawn Reilly at extension 8538 I was offered half of the $1,442.46 as BMW good will but nothing on the diagnostic cost. This is unheard it is like me an Architect charging a client because I have to learn to do something.
Worst Featuresshocks bottoming out and the horrid run flat tires. Then, the acorns dent the hood (they not dented the e46 or may wifeÂs C300 Mercedes) I am disgusted of this Brand.
