brake failure????

Hi BMW FANS. I was the proud owner of a 2007 x3 until 1 month ago. I had an accident that left may car unrepairable. I am very depressed over this and dont under stand how this could have happened. It was parked on avery slight incline. Brake set and in park. Somehow it rolled down a hill and over a small embankment. When it finally landed, the body was well preserved and still driveable. I had it towed to a repair shop and apparently there was just to much damage. Has anyone heard of a similar situation. I miss my car alot

Both the parking brake was set and the car was in park?? A double failure seems very strange...

It is highly possible, was there damage on the car consistent with that? i.e. paint or scuffing different from the other damage?

brake failure usually = driver error (just ask Audi of the 80's)

Sounds like a fortuitous event. Now you can replace it with a 2013 X3 35i, which is better in every conceivable way. Plus, if you did that, then you'd be in the right forum.

It's a win-win!

A good insurance agent will figure this one out immediately. If it is BMW's fault he'll know soon enough.

I dont think it is. Hopefully you get a nice fat check and can start over.
