Hello BMW lovers!


I’m wondering how many bad lucks cars BMW producing every week?

Why I asking this question is because I have bought one BMW 330i from Borgs Bil AB in Sweden (Maj-2003) and from the first mile I get into troubles with this car until now!

Some of problems:

Delivering problems (3 weeks later than our agreements)
Jarring noise in the coupe
Bad brake-disc / brake lining
Electric windows doesn’t reacts
Battery discharging
Keys (have been changed 2 times)
Alarms going on by self
Faulty messaging alarms
Volume keys on steering-wheel changing CD tracks
The brake light is on when car is turned off!
Ignition coil breaks suddenly
Instrument panel lights dying
Problem to start my car (6-times)
A loot of repair shops visiting
And so on …….

Totally I have 5 times demanded the wrecking cars before 3 700 miles (I’m saving fuel).

Still I have a loot of problem left and some of problems are not solved yet and I cannot trust on this car anymore!

I have talked with BMW Sweden and they told me that I have received bad lock cars!

Is somebody else have been in same troubles as me?

Thanks,
Arvin

hey i can probalby tell u this much.. (except for the noise), if you had this thing shipped then i hope you read the entire documents. my cousin bought an audi from germany and shipped it from there.... and he actually was telling me how he ended up with few scratch marks on his brand new car. He basically couldn't do anything because it said in the documents that they are not reliable for any damage.
Maybe it was while you were shipping it (if you did) that it got damaged.... yes it may seem a lot to be damaged but i noticed that most of those things sound like the wire consol or whatever. (basically your electrical unit box). also, could happen time to time that wires also were also in the wrong place and such. long time ago when our a8 got into an accident, we ask them to repair it... when we got it back, the rear windows controlled the locks...
but i bet u it isn't the bmw company.... i think they are pretty decent when it comes to spending that type of money, that they will give you a pretty good car.... bet is that its the wiring panel.... get someone to probably take a peek under there and make sure they are in the right place? regarding the sound..... when you important cars espcially overseas, they sometimes use different matierials to meet there conditions... either the car was left out or something, but they didn't change the parts when it entered the place you live.... these are my guesses

The car must still be under some kind of warranty. I just bought a 2002 330xi and it still has the "no Maintance" warranty left on it as well as othe warranty left on it till 2006. If that were happening to me, I would take the car to my dealership and park it and ask for a loaner and tell them to return the car to me after they had driven it and all the problems were gone.

When the car is under warranty, I don't see the problems as my problems, but BMW's problems.

rsn48: Yes I have warrant, and my dealer says still that the can fix the problems!

I have got them 20 chances to fix all problems and they have failed all the time.

And also a have tried to return back this car a lot of times, but dealer refuse my request.

But problem for me is I have bought a new car and I want a car that I can trust on. My dealer and BMW Sweden doesn’t understand this situation. They telling me we giving you a rent car every time when your car is on our hands and you should be happy!
