2000 BMW Z3 Owner Comments

problem #1

BMW saw problem at the BMW Z-3 homecoming. Said if it was not the computer causing the door locks trapping passengers inside this car, it was a short in the wiring harness. Computer changed and the door locks trapped consumer inside the car for 3 days beginning on the N.J. turn pike headed to nova scotia. The only way to get out of this car when the door locks shortened out is to either put down the roof and windows and climb out of the car or roll down the window and take the key out of the ignition and reach on the outside of the car and unlock it from the outside. A nova scotia BMW dealer said locks were going into the double locking position which should never happen from locking this car from the inside. Only from the out side. I have written dozens of letters to BMW concerning this serious safety issue but no parts have been changed since October 2000. The door locks trapped me inside this car two weeks ago in augusta Georgia and again in brunswick Georgia this past weekend. I also have had continuous problems of a leaking roof, a rattling dashboard, radio cutting in and out in the left channel and a lot of other problems. I asked over 2 years ago for this 2000 BMW Z-3 to be replaced, but BMW refused. It has been in BMW shops over 7 times for over a month and the problems are still there.
