2005 BMW 745 Owner Comments

Took the BMW 745li in to the dealership for slow to start cranking and second opinion. Also wanted the dealership to review airbag light and dsc. Upon review by the dealership, all four door tags and szl (comfort access) is causing battery drain and must be replaced. Also was quoted that the cluster needed to be replaced and a fuel line leak is present. After speaking with a manager, it was decided that they were not sure if the door tags and szl would assist with clearing the slow crank. I opted the service from that dealer and decided to pick up the vehicle. After driving about 5 miles, I realized that the car reeked of gas. This was not an apparent issue when driving the vehicle in to the dealership. The dealership has caused more hardship than assistance.

The contact owned a 2005 BMW 745li. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle veered to the left and crashed into a guardrail. In addition, the vehicle slid to the right and flipped over onto the passenger side. The air bags failed to deploy. The driver sustained a neck injury and medical attention was required. A police report was not filed. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 126,119.

My car was due for state inspection and I took it into richmond BMW in midlothian va. The technician called and said the airbag light was on and the sensor is bad. There is an airbag recall for the other BMW series but it didn't include the seven series. There are other 7 series owners experiencing the same thing. I read this on the BMW forums and it is a lot of BMW owners spending money for something that should be recalled as well. Can you please consider our cars as well.

A full warning message appearing in the idrive was fault in pass.-restraint system affecting airbag, belt tensioner or belt-force limiter. Fasten and continue to wear belts. Please contact the nearest BMW center. Now the seat belt /air bag fail light stays on and provide a warning upon start-up.
