The steering wheel resists turning back to the left after a right turn. The problem is getting worse. It is my daily driver and every week the resistance is harder to overcome. It is getting very concerning about the safety aspects of this problem.

While driving the car on a normal speed 35-40 M/ hour, the steering wheel locked and the car crashed into the telephone poll. I got major damage to the front body ( the whole front bumper and hood got really smashed in) I also damaged the arm control and the alignments of the vehicle.

BMW 325 ci: I have experienced so many problems with my 325ci BMW, I bought the car in November, the car is not even 1 year old and I have taken to service four times already. My car is a 2002 and at this moment it has 10,660 miles. The car has a major computer problem. My ABS seems to be malfunctioning as well as my emergency brake, and to make matters worse the transmission has been reprogramed and pieces are coming off in the inside. I have taken the car to service the past three weeks for the the computer and the body. Lucky BMW does have great service and I havent had to pay for a single repair. But I would really like to file a lemon law on the car because I know the problems with the car will never stop.
