I have a 2000 528I with only 26,000 miles, bought new and several problems have occured that I find to be outrageous. The car speedo doesnt work, the asc doesnt work, the abs light is on for some reason and today the car started overheating. I took the car to the dealer and found I was out of warranty and that the problem was a failed thermostat and the electrical problems were caused by a module which costs over $1000.
Should these things happen to a car with so few miles, was there ever a recall on these items and are these cars problematic? I have owned many new cars but never have I had so many problems. I think these cars are so complicated that only the dealer can work on them so I should have bought an extended warranty which I dont think is still possible, correct me if I am wrong. I look forward to hearing any suggestions.
