2004 BMW 325 Owner Comments

problem #4

  • miles


BMW 325xi 2004, after substantial or unreasonable delay in the BMW return, was perceived to be rendered unsafe/unsatisfactory/incomplete, with airbag defects/spillover effects, or released with known defects to the vehicle that put the driver and unsuspecting occupants at risk of serious bodily injury up to death. BMW was to send a 'consent form', then vehicle owner was to review/sign/return, BMW would then order 'interim airbag' parts, and repair. The consent form was not received or signed, June 2016, BMW enter/repair without authorization, or signed consent forms, and made unknown changes to the airbag/systems. The toxins remain has corroded it or released toxins/odor. The vehicle was on a 'cease & desist' airbag repair pending the receipt and execution of the consent form as agreed. BMW failed to make the repairs per quote and airbag [I.e. explosive device; sodium azide azium; shrapnel, etc.] was left in an unsafe state. The vehicle needs an inspection by NHTSA, as it is believed to be contaminated or corroded, by unknown toxins (I.e sodium azide or azium?). persons exposed have contacted cdc/poison center who stated that persons not have further contact with BMW till inspected? see claim 10881628 for same/similar background. The owners were subjected to foreseeable toxins, from the airbag defects/recalls/ unauthorized repairs to the BMW, pending a "consent form", and has resulted in injury or medical care or poison control center consultations. The toxins had a 'sharp odor', overwhelming as reported, and exposure resulted in damages to persons or property, awaiting estimates to be completed. Importantly, exposure to sodium azide can be fatal and the vehicle needs an inspection by NHTSA or dot. If you do not inspect unsafe vehicles, with perceived safety concerns, please provide a referral or preferred source due to the serious public health and safety issues.

I was driving in the center lane and a cement truck was driving in the right lane about one car lengths ahead of me when some fell off of his truck and hit my hood, putting a hole through it. It then hit the passenger side panel, mirror and metal piece between the windshield and the passenger window. I tried for a minimum of 5 miles to get the driver to pull over to no avail. I think he may have been drinking because when he changed lanes he would use the wrong turn signal. Left lane change he used the right signal and vice versa. We could not find the piece that hit my car but it was greasy, because I had grease at every damaged area.
