While driving on the highway at a speed of about 65 mph my car suddenly lost power. A "drive train malfunction" warning appeared on the dash indicating that I had reduced power. My speed was quickly reduced and I had to cruise to the right lane. Unfortunately the portion of the NJ garden state parkway that I was on did not have a shoulder. It just so happened that the guard rail was broken and I was able to coast off the road and place the car between the opening between the broken guard rails. I was not injured or involved in an accident, largely due to the fact that there was a break in the guard rail. After towing the car to the dealer, I was told that there is an "equipment update/customer convience upgrade" for the car that would replace the failed fuel injectors free of charge. I feel that this clearly is a safety issue that is being disguised as an equipment upgrade. Losing power while driving on the highway is absolutely dangerous. BMW should not wait until the injectors fail to correct the situation. Or wait until there are a couple of fatalities to call this what it is.. a safety hazard!! as I checked online forums, many BMW owners are experiencing this issue. BMW is also telling me that the throttle assembley and sensors need to be replaced at my cost due to the fact that this could also cause a shut down/and or reduction of power to the vehicle while driving.

The engine in this car (N63) has major flaws. At anytime while driving this engine can stall or reduce power. There are issues with the timing chains, fuel injectors, vanos system and other electrical engine parts. This car has been in for service a total of 57 days since April 2014 for engine failure. This car when fails will reduce power or shut down and you have no power to get out of the way of traffic. BMW fails to correct this problem. BMW is currently replacing some of the parts that they think might have some effect but not all dealers are assisting consumers and BMW will not recall this. This is a major safety issue as this N63 engine is used in all BMW vehicles fitted with a V8.

While driving on the parking lot the vehicle suddenly jerking around and engine stopped. When tried to run the engine it was shaking tremendously and engine was not running. So I towed it to the dealer next morning for repair. After repair was done which took a week I drove it for about 40 minutes and then when I applied the brake it was shaking alot again every time I was applying brake. I for somehow avoiding all stop sign by driving carefully, took the car home and took it to the dealer next morning at which time it was shaking tremendously or sometime moving forward fast(jerking move) when I applied brake or step on gas pedal.
