The contact owns a 2002 BMW 745li. The contact stated that the fuel pump did not circulate coolant to the motor. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign number: 02V150000 (fuel system, gasoline); however, the contact's vehicle was never included in the recall. The contact also stated that the camshaft position sensor was faulty and caused the motor to misfire. Once the vehicle misfired, the check engine warning indicator illuminated and the engine failed. The contact believed that the failure was related to NHTSA campaign number: 03V240000 (engine, engine cooling). The contact took the vehicle to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the camshaft sensor and the fuel pump needed to be replaced. The dealer and manufacturer were not notified. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 108,000.

I contacted BMW of North America just recently regarding the airbag sensor problem since we keep spending money on this car since the first day we got it nothing but problems. I would like them to purchased this car back from me since all I had is money losses and aggravation with this vehicle.

We have being having problems with the safety issues of this car, sometimes the car will be fine and all of the sudden it dies completly leaving you stranded, the car will crank over and wont start. We have taking to the shop and we have emails from BMW of North America addressing this issue and they advice the repair shop to replace battery, fuel pump, and some modulators and the problem still not fix. This car is being a money pit. The car was towed again to the BMW service dealership to get diagnosed again for the same problem. Also in this BMW brake lights come on and there is nothing wrong with the brakes, airbag light will come on as well. I used to own a Mercedes Benz E430 and I never had any problems with it. My husband likes BMW's, but there is nothing but problems one after another very frustrating. Maybe we got a lemon car all alone and we have being paying the price ever since.
