2 separate issues 1st, the vehicle when in park cannot switch to drive or reverse, it will only switch to neutral. Happen on countless occasions. Brought the vehicle to russell BMW who told me I have to pay to replace the transmission. Recall 93562 is now posted on BMW website detailing the same issue. Spoke to a rep who dismissed my vehicle complaint because the VIN # does not fall under the luxury package therefore not included in the recall. 2nd issue..the vehicle brakes when applied does not stop. Twice it's happen when I tried to slow or stop resulting in scaring me half to death and near accidents. I also address the recall 87903 with the rep who once again told me the VIN is not covered in the recall even though the year and model is included as part of the recall the question I pose is why is the VIN determining the qualification of the need to have BMW responsibly fix the 1st year model of their trial and error vehicles. I paid way too much to be told that because I did not have the comfort package my vehicle is not included in their recall" is it going to take an accident for BMW to be fix the necessary problems"

After receiving a recall letter from BMW for the brake vacuum pump (recall campaign no. 10V-446), I took the car to crevier BMW but was told they didn't have the part. Never heard back from crevier BMW, forgot about it until the brakes completely failed without warning. Had the car towed to the nearest dealer in irvine. They replaced the vacuum supply line but not the vacuum pump. They recommended I replace the leaking vacuum pump at my cost of over $900.the description of the problem included in the recall letter from BMW specifically indicates that the leak from the vacuum pump into the vacuum hose, is the root of the problem. I spoke to J, mcclain at BMW and she said that the recall is a federal mandate and this mandate only requires them to replace the line not the pump.

On Nov 29, 2010 I took my car into the dealership for standard maintenance as well as to investigate leaks that were occurring. The dealership notified me that there was a recall that they needed to performance maintenance on as well related to the brakes. Leaks were repaired, recall work (brake line and vacuum pipe) completed. On Mar 3, 2011 all power assist to my brakes failed while backing up and nearly collided with another vehicle. When I took this to the dealership they told me that it would be $1,000 to replace the master cylinder and brake booster. When I asked why this work wasn't performed when the recall maintenance was performed they indicated that it was not required. My worry is that other vehicle owners will be at risk due to incomplete maintenance performed by BMW with much more serious outcomes. I am struggling currently with BMW to convince them that this is all related (as noted in the recall notice) but not making any progress.

On 1-25-2010 I was going to new port beach and traveling on fwy405N. About 5 minutes before the place of accident my car started swirling about 2' left and right and I was very worried. There was no sign on the dashboard because for any kind trouble to the car there is always some thing or other cautioning driver of steps to be taken. Also because I was about 10 minutes away from my destination so I continued to drive very cautiously. In about 5 minutes timecar started swirling very violently right and left and brakes and steering control was not working as I tried my best to control the car. This happened close to fwy73 exit. Though I was continuing to 405N I was on most left lane close to diamond lane. After violent swirling right and left during that action car took a complete 180 degree turn and quietly stopped very close to and parallel/adjacent to center divider facing to on coming traffic. I was safe without any hurt. I immediately called 911 and then I called home and then I called my contact to whom I was going to see. After hwy patrol arrived I saw that both the back wheels were tilted at 60 degree angle and when car was taking 180 degree turn bumper touched the center dividing wall and came off. This was total damage to the car. No other vehicle was involved in this accident and I did not hit any other stationary object. BMW does not want to entertain this and my insurance company Liberty mutual is consistently telling that I am responsible for the accident and I hit the car with a standing object. I am asking for that they should investigate it properly by reading in the car computer that what was the reason of accident and what was mileage I was traveling. Also why brakes and steering stopped working which could have helped me in preventing this accident. I am not looking for any gains but trying to see that more people may not get involved in these accidents and may not be as lucky as I was. I sincerely need your help. Please help! help! help!
