Mein Auto: 2011 535GT Priorty 1 orde
Angry 2011 GT Priorty 1. 61,000 miles-dealership has it month now? HELP

I ordered my 535 GT with almost every option I could. Even got the Active Vent Seating for 6 grand more. I purchased the extra service to 100 thousand and have purchased extra warr to 100 thousand.

Until now ,I have had very minor issues with my car and love it. But, got a message of Drivetrain error. Pulled over and had it towed in. Now over a month has gone by and they still have no clue at Fresno BMW of what to do. Replaced all fuel injectors and replaced spark plugs 3 times and it keeps random misfiring in the cylinders. I think its the dealership, considering I found out my spark plugs had not been serviced since new.

When my brakes were done they did not change the rotors and said they did. Many other issues with dealership in the past 10 years they went from a lot the sized of a local mimi mart to a huge oversized block and built a huge building all marble and such, then sold for big bucks. I really think former Weber BMW and now Fresno BMW needs a huge Lawssuit since this is the third Car of mine in the last 10 years they have ruined. My car out the door was almost 90 thousand dollars and after 60 thousand miles its not running after a month. What would you do? I don't believe this is a problem with design or model or BMW North America. They are a awesome car maker and to deal with. I think it is the shady dealership I need a Lawyer

This is the THIRD car you purchased from them where you've had issues? Why do you continue to deal with them at all?
