LUCKILY THE PERSON BEHIND ME WAS LIKE TWO CARS AW1 CAR AWAY SO NO ONE COLLIDED IN ME , HOWEVER WHEN I LOOK THROUGH MY REAR VIEW MIRROR I SAW ALL THE TRUCKS AND CARS COMING DOWN I DON+T KNOW HOW I WAS ABLE TO MOVE THE CAR OVER INTO THE SERVICE LANE, THE CRAZINESS IS THAT EVEN THOUGH THE CAR STOP IT WAS STILL IN DRIVE I WAS UNABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL. IT+S BEEN A WEEK SINCE THIS HAPPEN AND I+M STILL HAVING ANXIETY. I AM HAVING A HARD TIME CHANGING THE CAR BECAUSE BMW INSISTED. THEY SAID SOME COLLISION AVOIDANCE WAS ON VERY SENSITIVE AND IT+S FIX NOW. BUT THE WHY WOULD A CAR STOP SUDDENLY ON A HIGHWAY WHEN NOTHING WAS IN FRONT ON ME AND NO OTHER VECHICLE WAS CLOSE BY I THANK GOD THAT I+M ABLE TO WRITE THIS I NEED SOME SERIOUS HELP BECAUSE IF I GET BACK IN THAT SAME CAR I+M GOING TO BE DRIVING IN FEAR FOR THE NEXT 3 YEARS WHO DO I SPEAK TO REGARDING THIS ISSUE.

CAR ISSUED A SAFETY WARNING CONCERNING, "PASSENGER RESTRAINT SYSTEM MALFUNCTION" STATING THE PASSENGER RESTRAINT SYSTEM IS LIMITED. WARNING SHOWS UP WHEN PASSENGER SEAT EMPTY AND WHEN CAR IS STATIONARY OR MOVING. DEALERSHIP SERVICE CENTER VERIFIED VEHICLE HAD ERROR CODE BUT STATED THEY "BELIEVE" IT IS MOISTURE IN THE SENSOR AND INSTRUCTED ME TO REDIRECT AIR CONDITIONING TO FLOOR WHEN WARNING COMES ON SCREEN. CONCERNED ABOUT WHETHER THIS IS REALLY JUST A SENSOR PROBLEM THAT SHOULD BE IGNORED OR IF THERE IS ACTUALLY A SAFETY PROBLEM WITH THE RESTRAINT SYSTEM.
