  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey everyone, my first post here. I'm really active with MBWorld forums, but I made the switch last year and bought 2 BMW's 2012 F10 528i and a 2013 F02 740Li X-Drive. Ok here's what happened. My vehicle was affected by the F10 in-tank fuel pump recall. The car died in the middle of the road...
  2. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    Please help! I purchased a 2013 BMW X6M almost 3 years ago in Texas and though it was identified as manufacturer buyback then, I wasn't prepared for the responses from car dealerships when I began looking to trade it in. Most recently, I was told they couldn't even sell it on the lot and that...

    Anyone else had car shut down & displaying ABS/drivetrain/chassis stability lites?

I got it restarted, and that...

    Hi I have a 2013 650i that was purchased in Los Angeles last June. I have had the car as a daily driver since then and have experienced no major issues until last Sunday.

  7. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    Hi bimmers! I was checking the Autocheck of a 2009 bmw 328 and the car was first listed as a manufacturer car in auction in 2010 with 6k miles on it. I read through the web and learned that these cars are usually exec cars or are used for some events. However the ones that I learnt about mostly...

    A friend of mine recently bought a 328, not sure the year but post 2004 for sure. He has 4000 miles on it and has had THE WORST experience regarding sensors, brakes, warning lights etc. The dealership have been dicks as well. He looked into the lemon laws and found that he's not eligible to...
  13. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    BMW NA has offered a few alternatives to address electrical problems I have experienced on my 2011 550i Sport. Without getting into a lot of detail on the history, the car is well within my states lemon law criteria. During the last prolonged service they agreed to give me my full purchase...
  14. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I have taken my brand new X3 back for the second time. Every warning light goes off. First time they changed a sensor. The most recent (more than 3 weeks ago and still in shop) they suggested changing the same sensor again. Now they decided to change the DSC Control unit. But of course that...

    I have had my 2011 550i for about a month and it currently has about 500 miles on it. I have barely driven the car, and about 95% of the driving has been on the highway ( i have 2 cars and i take the bmw out on longer trips only). However, i am getting a pathetic 13 mpg. Additionally, the...

    Quick history - had a 2008 535i on a 2 year lease. Since residuals were crap and the lease rates so high, decided to buy it and do the stage 2 dinan upgrade. The day I bought it I didn't even get home before I had an engine malfunction, turned out to be the cam ledge something or other. Towed...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Okay, so this is my first posting on here. I found the postings on this site to be extremely helpful when I purchased my 2008 E92 through European Delivery two years ago. That said, I'm hoping that I can get some insight from fellow BMW owners on whether I ended up with a lemon. Let me first...
  19. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi guys! I bought a used 2008 X5 form a bmw dealership about 2 months ago. The car has broken down multiple times since then for the same reason (DSC/ARS failure).

  20. BMW Dealer Ratings and Feedback Forum
    It has just been a disappointing experience since the start of buying my BMW. I should've known better when my friend cautioned me in buying one over an "incident" they had and when seeing a neighboring customer with their M3 spend another $15,000 after 6 months of constant shop repairs. I was...
