I WAS TURNING ON TO A HIGHWAY, AS I ACCELERATED TO MATCH THE SPEED OF ONCOMING TRAFFIC AND MERGE, THE ENGINE POWER ABRUPTLY DEGRADED. I HAD TO SWERVE OUT OF THE LANE TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT. THE VEHICLE HAD A FLASHING SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT AND WAS NOT PRODUCING ANY POWER. I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO PARK AVE. BMW IN NJ. THE DEALER DIAGNOSED MY VEHICLE WITH A FAILED DME (ENGINE MANAGEMENT COMPUTER OR ECU) AT LESS THAN 60K. AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH I FOUND MANY OTHERS BMW N54 ENGINE OWNERS ONLINE WHO HAD ENCOUNTERED THE SAME DME FAILURE. IT TURNS OUT AN ELECTRICAL COMPONENT THAT COSTS A COUPLE OF CENTS WAS PREMATURELY FAILING. THIS WAS KNOWN TO BMW IN 2007 WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS BEING SOLD. THE BMW SERVICE BUILTIN SI B 12 18 07 CLEARLY INDICATES THAT THIS IS AN UNEXPECTED FAILURE AND IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE DIODE. FURTHER MORE THE ISSUE CAN DAMAGE COILS AND FUEL INJECTORS COSTING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. REPLACING COILS, INJECTORS, AND THE DME CAN EXCEED $5000. FURTHER MORE BMW CHOSE NO TO BE PROACTIVE AND REPLACE THE COMPONENT, INSTEAD THEY PUT PEOPLES LIVES AT RISK, AT BEST THEIR BENEFITING FROM THEIR OWN LACK OF QUALITY.

7/8/2016 - PACIFIC PALISADES, CA
THERE IS A SERIOUS DEFECT WITH THE ENGINE AND FUEL PUMP. IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO ACCELERATE WHEN DRIVING ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY, THE CAR WILL SHAKE, JOLT AND THE ENGINE WILL START TO MAKE A WEIRD NOISE. THERE IS OIL LEAKING CONSTANTLY AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS CONSTANTLY COMING ON EVEN AFTER JUST BEING REPAIRED. THE CAR GOES INTO LIMP MODE AND HAS SHUT DOWN ON ME NUMEROUS TIMES WHILE DRIVING. I'VE HAD THE FUEL PUMP REPLACED NUMEROUS TIMES AND YET IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AGAINST. THE CAR WILL OVERHEAT AT TIMES AND AND JUST SHUT DOWN. I WAS DRIVING ON A BUSY CITY STREET WHEN THE CAR JUST SHUT DOWN, I COULDN'T STEER OR BRAKE IT JUST DIED IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY STREET. IT WAS EXTREMELY UNSAFE AND PUT MY LIFE IN DANGER AS WELL AS THE OTHER DRIVERS ON THE ROAD, ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY WERE DRIVING AT FAST SPEEDS.
