I too have had continual problems with my new 2013 750Li. Remember this car is BRAND NEW. I was constantly burning oil every 1,000 miles, then I got a drive train malfunction and a sensor had to be changed out, then I got a transmission failure and again another sensor, now with the burning oil so bad, I brought it in and they said that two hoses that are suppose to circulate oil are not working. They can get the left hose but not the right and BMW has no idea when. They are thinking 6 months. I said keep it, I am not taking it back. They talked to BMWNA and have agreed to swap out the car. This has been since Dec 1st. In the mean time, we are paying on a car that I have not had in my possession for close to 2 months.

At least the dealership advocated on my behalf and was able to get approval to replace the car.

Obviously something is not right with these new 7's. No one can accept these type f issues on a 100k car. Completely unacceptable

I would argue it to be unacceptable on any new car - even one for $15K.

Mein Auto: 2010 750Li Xdrive
Unhappy Seems Like I Joined "the Club"

First post, hello to everyone and thanks for having me in the club. I do have to say that I love my "new" car. I bought a 2010 750Li Xdrive with 33000 miles. I think it is everything I ever wanted in a car. With that having been said...

...I have owned my new (to me) 750 for 3 weeks now. Last week, with my garage full of gasoline fumes from the leaking sensor in the fuel line (between the heads), it was in the shop to fix that. Today, I left it at the dealership to replace all of the fuel injectors, which will have to be flown in tomorrow. So reading through the thread, what do you think comes next? Smooth sailing from here or am I on to the turbos or something else?

Do love the car when it runs...keeping the faith for now.

My car had a bunch of issues and was at the dealership for 7 weeks straight. That was a year ago and nothing since. Good luck.

+1 on that! Other than experiencing the "orange screen of death" once on my iDrive, I had no issues with my 7. I was happy to learn in those instances described here where there were some major problems that BMW stepped up to the plate. Is this...drivetrain malfunction...something that is mostly occurring in the `13 models?

750li XDrive Burning oil

Hi, I am experiencing the same problem with my 750li XDrive. The car is burning about a quart every 1000 miles but no other problems yet. My dealer has also advocated to replace the car and has managed to get BMW to give me a different car as long as it doesn't have the same engine. Is this what they did for you or did they put you in another 750li XDrive?

I have a 2010 750xi lease and the same issues happened to me a couple of times. This is my 3rd BMW (3 & 5) and I've never had these issues before. Usually the dealers don't believe me until they see the drivetrain malfunction and check engine light. Then they end up replacing fuel injectors. And this last time I had been smelling fuel and there was some other fuel leak. UNACCEPTABLE!! I thought I was the only one who had experienced this with this car over the course I've had it. It still feels like its riding rough. I have a few more months left on the lease and I will be exploring all alternatives.

Me too!!!

So I've had the gamut of slow engine starts, drivetrain warnings with car shuttering, and unable to drive about 60, which is not really what you want when entering a high way. The same solutions have been attempted, replaced injectors twice, wiring harness twice. I'm 2 years into my lease, but I still want out, as I for me this is a SAFETY issue for me and my family. They've offered to put me into a new lease, but I don't want to make a 100K decision out of duress. I've offered to finish my current lease term in new car, which they are balking on. I'll be sure to update you, but for the amount of time, aggravation, and physical jeopardy that this car and company have put me through. I am very disappointed. This is coming from someone who did European Delivery and championed BMW to anyone that listened, including my father and godfather who both bought cars within the last 3 months from the same dealership. Hope BMW NA will step up.

This is confusing. Do you want out? Or do you want to drive a new car for 2 years? If you want out, you can likely do so, less a small amount covering use until you first reported the issue.

My recommendation is first to focus on what you want to do, and try and get it, rather than this or that. There are quite a few examples of folks who have been happy getting out of their car, and those happy with a new replacement.

Angry Fuel Injectors Replaced (again)

I have a 2010 750Li that I purchased as CPO in Jan 2013. I am suffering the same issues in this thread with drivetrain alerts and rough operating. The symptoms are combined with a strong fuel smell in and out of the car.

The car has 65k miles and is currently in the dealership getting it's latest fuel injector replacement on both sides. This will be the 3rd time in 6 months that car has been in to repair the same reoccurring problem. I suspect the previous owner experienced the same issues and unloaded it. I'm wondering if I can do the same since I have zero confidence in the issue being resolved permanently.

Does anyone think BMW will entertain making this right by letting me out of this car so I can focus on life without this continued unreliable nightmare?

If you have had 4 major issues while under warranty even CPO California lemon law will protect you. I would recommend you seek a lemon attorney for advice as it seems like you may have a case if you have met this criteria.

So... I know it's an old topic, but today I raced a car, when I reached 190km/hr I got the message "drivetrain malfunction" on my screen. Is it serious? Should I even care and talk to my dealership about it?

Re: drivetrain malfunction

Be cautious with those symptoms (jerky/jumpy driving, drive train malf, and smell of fuel.) My engine knock forum has some pics. My 7 went from drive train malfunction to jumpy driving and the smell of fuel then to a knock (bent rod from hydro locking, liquid fuel does not compress well =D ). Tale to dealer. Ask them to replace with index 11 injectors..

Re: drivetrain malfunction

The car threw the code for a reason...one of the sensors sensed something out of its programmed norm. If it happened then went away it could very well just be the way you were driving (getting on it) or a misfire. An injector could be acting up too...it really shouldn't happen at all. If it happens again I would def take it to dealer and push for some replacements. Things to consider: high pressure pump, injectors, plugs, coils, and harness. Also have them evaluate the timing.

Most of these issues happens to be injectors, I had mine replaced at only 4200 miles, I now have 10989 miles and riding solid .

Hmmm on cold start ups? Sounds like a teeny air bubble in your fuel like (or water). Do you run your firm down to <60mi range?
