I can’t say enough on how disappointed I am that they won’t consider that something can be wrong even if their “inspections” don’t show it. If I drove it off today and it happened again, what is my life worth to BMW?
This isnt unique to BMW, as it has happened with numerous different vehicles.
BMW's reaction also isnt unique. Pretty much all auto manufacturers will respond the same. What happened is fairly uncommon, and unless they can replicate exactly what happened they wont accept liability for it. By them admitting their was an issue without proof that it was a defect their opening them selves up to people wrecking their cars and coming after BMW for new ones. BMW, and all manufacturers are simply protecting themselves. We all know people will see this as a way to upgrade their vehicle at BMW's expensive.
Yes, I can see how that can happen, however, the brakes did malfunction and now I don't trust the safety of the car. I had planned on keeping this car for several years, I even purchased the extended warranty. Now it will cost me a lot money for this defect since I will not drive this car again and have to purchase another one. I've owned 4 BMW's and this will be my last. Maybe I'll have it looked at by someone else and get a second opinion.
Well then dont buy a Toyota then, because they recalled 40 million vehicles for the same issue.
BMW has never issued a recall for this as its not a widely reported issue.
