FOR TWO YEARS MY SEATBELT SENSOR PAD IN THE PASSENGERS SIDE HAS BEEN BROKEN. THE COST IS $1400. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER ONLY FOR THEM TO SAY THEY DON'T SEE A RECALL ON MY CAR. I LOOKED IT UP HERE AND THE SAME RESULT. I RESEARCH RECALLS ON THE 3 SERIES 328XI ON THE INTERNET AND I SEE A SEAT SENSOR PAD RECALL ON SOME CARS. WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS IF IT'S THE SAME SENSOR PAD AND/OR SAME MALFUNCTION. WHY IS IT ONLY A FRACTION OF THE MODELS? ALSO IT'S UNFAIR FOR YOU GUYS TO MAKE MISTAKE WITH THIS INFORMATION. BY THE TIME YOU HAVE CORRECTED THE ISSUE I WILL HAVE DIED OR PAID FOR EVERY DEFECT OUT OF MY OWN POCKETS. REMEMBER BMW IS A BUSINESS I AM NOT. THE NEW ISSUES IS SOMETHING THAT I HAVE NEVER HAD HAPPEN IN 20 YEARS OF DRIVING. I HIT AN AVERAGE SIZE POTHOLE AND MY SUSPENSION LOCKED-UP THEN LATER SOMETHING SNAPPED. IT WAS THE REAR WHEEL DRIVERS SIDE. ITS STILL IN THE SHOP BUT SOMEONE NEEDS TO LOOK INTO THE SAFETY OF ALL THE VEHICLES AND ISSUE FREE REPAIR OR REFUND, ASAP. ALSO AN ISSUE WITH THE FAN BUT I A M RUNNING OUT OF CHARACTERS. TO ME IT SEEMS LIKE MOST OF THE ISSUE THAT YOU TRY TO ISOLATE BY MODEL ARE ACTUAL ISSUES ACROSS ALL MODELS AND WE NEED A SOLUTION. BETTER FIX THE ISSUE NOW OR LATER HAVE SOMEONE'S WHEEL COME OFF ON THE HIGHWAY. OR WHAT IF THE AIR BAG JUST NEVER RELEASE? ITS YOUR FAULT AND BMW. YOU PEOPLE SIT ON THIS INFORMATION FOR YEARS. THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO COME TO MY HOUSE AND FIX THIS SHIT!!!! OR WRITE ME A CHECK!!!!

12/9/2015 - PAINESVILLE, OH
A CAR WITH 118K MILES THAT HAS HAD NUMEROUS OIL LEAKS AROUND THE VALVE COVER AND OIL FILTER HOUSING. IT HAS BEEN LEAKING OIL FOR THE LAST 50K MILES. I'VE ALREADY REPLACED THE "PLASTIC" VALVE COVER AND FILTER HOUSING EACH. NOW THE PLASTIC VALVE COVER IS CRACKED. I'M WAITING FOR IT TO CATCH ON FIRE. EVERY BMW BLOG HAS NUMEROUS EXAMPLES THIS ISSUE. I'VE OWNED 10 CARS OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS AND ALL OF THEM ADDED TOGETHER HAVEN'T LEAKED OIL AS MUCH AS THIS POORLY DESIGNED ENGINEERED VEHICLE. IT IS BAFFLING TO ME THAT THE PLASTIC VALVE COVER ($500 PLUS $700 LABOR) HASN'T BEEN RECALLED. ADDITIONALLY, THE SIDE VIEW MIRRORS MOVE ALL BY THEMSELVES. THEY ARE ELECTRICALLY POSSESED. I'VE DISCONNECTED THE WIRES BECAUSE IT IS CRAZY TO HAVE THE MIRRORS MOVE WHILE DRIVING (CAN'T BE PUT BACK WITHOUT STOPPING/PULLING OVER AND MANUALLY PUTTING THE MIRROR BACK. AGAIN, EVERY BLOG ON THIS MODEL IS FILLED WITH THIS ISSUE. HOW IS THERE NOT A RECALL ON THESE ISSUES. I WOULD RATHER HAVE AN AIR BAG THAT DOESN'T WORK THAN A MOVING OIL DISPENSER WITH POSSESSED SIDE VIEW MIRRORS.
