problem #2

Jul 262006

325 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,400 miles


2006 BMW 325I, approx. 2400 miles. Returning to office from lunch, slowed to approach speed bumps that align parking stall that I was going to pull into. As I was turning into the stall (approx. 5-10 mph), I started to apply the brake and the pedal was soft (normally very stiff). I depressed the brake pedal to the floor and the car did not stop. It felt like it increased in speed slightly before crashing into the wall and a 4" steel downspout. Airbag deployed and I received minor injuries. Tested brakes afterwards and they felt normal. Approx. $13,000 damage.

2006 BMW 325I miles: 5K on July 19th, 2006 approx 9:00 am, while I was parking at my office parking lot going about 5 to 10 mph, after I entered the parking stall, I started to apply the brake. The brake pedal felt soft (normally the pedal is stiff), and it wasn't stopping, so I pressed it all the way to the floor. The car felt like it sped up a bit and hit the vehicle directly in front of me. Luckily, no one was in the car and the damage was minor front bumper damage, both to mine and the other vehicle. After I hit other vehicle, I put it in reverse to pull away, then my brake pedal felt normal and came to a complete stop.
