2014 BMW X1 Owner Comments

Vehicle seatbelts do not cross over chest for me. There is not a seatbelt adjuster like most vehicles have so the seat belt cuts across my neck and locks up on my neck when hitting the brakes. I spoke with BMW consumer and they recommend purchasing a cushion but that still does not resolve the issue. Its like the seat belt is choking or strangling me when braking. Also my keyless entry does not work from a distance like most vehicles. I have to be on the car pressing and pressing. I had the battery replaced like BMW recommended and it still does not work. However on their new model vehicle the new keyless entries work from a distance.

2014 BMW X-1. attorney representing consumer writes in regards to power assist brake failure accident. The consumer was stopped at a red light, when the stop/start system on her vehicle automatically shut the engine off. When the light changed, the consumer removed her foot from the brake pedal. The vehicle rolled forward a short distance. However, another vehicle of the consumer stopped. The consumer relied on the power assist brakes, but the engine did not promptly restart when she applied the brake multiple times. Consequently, she was unable to stop the vehicle and ultimately rear ended another vehicle.
