UNKNOWN OR OTHER

4/12/2014 - BONITA SPRINGS, FL
TWO CONTINUOUS ISSUES: 1. WHEN DEPRESSING THE GAS PEDAL THE VEHICLE WOULD HESITATE, RPM'S WOULD SHOOT UP, AND WOULD TAKE 3-10 SECONDS TO REGAIN POWER AND FOR CAR TO ACCELERATE. I KNOW THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE BUT THIS HAPPENS REGULARLY WHEN CAR SITS IN THE HOT SUN DURING THE DAY. DOES NOT HAPPEN DURING COOLER DAYS. 2. WHEN COMING TO A STOP SIGN THE VEHICLE MAKES A HARD JERK AND FEELS LIKE SOMEONE SLAMMING INTO THE BACK OF THE CAR - HARD. THE CAR THEN JERKS INTO GEAR. THE DSC INDICATOR LIGHT THEN FLASHES SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL I RESUME NORMAL SPEED AND THEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT. I'M VERY SURPRISED THIS HASN'T CAUSED AN ACCIDENT OR INJURY TO MY NECK, IT'S THAT HARD OF A JERK. I'VE HAD THE CAR TO THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP AND THEY CAN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. IT'S TO THE POINT WHERE I DON'T WANT TO DRIVE MY BMW FOR ANY UNNECESSARY ERRANDS AND THOUGHT I WOULD UPGRADE TO A NEWER 750LI IN THE NEAR FUTURE BUT NOT SURE IF I WANT TO PURCHASE THIS MODEL AGAIN. BMW, PLEASE STEP UP AND FIX THIS ISSUE - THERE ARE TOO MANY COMPLAINTS OUT THERE FOR THIS TO CONTINUE TO BE IGNORED.

THE CAR TRANSMISSION WILL NOT ENGAGE. IF YOU TRY TO PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE OR FORWARD GEAR NOTHING HAPPENS. THE GEAR GOES TO NEUTRAL AND DOES NOT LET PARKING GEAR OR ANY OTHER GEAR ANGAGE. IF GEAR STAYS IN DRIVE MOD AND WHEN YOU ARE WONDERING WHAT TO DO GEAR SUDDENLY ENGAGES ITSELF AND CAR SHOOTS ITSELF IF BRAKE PEDAL WAS NOT PRESSED. I CONTACTED THE DEALER WHO NOTIFIED THAT THEY COULD NOT ASSESS THE PROBLEM FOR A WEEK BECAUSE OF BUSY SCHEDULE. THE CAR IS IN NON DEALER SHOP CURRENTLY.
