Sometimes the emergency lights came on while the car was parked. In September of last year, while driving it smoke started coming out of the vents then soon after the hole car caught fire. I loved my BMW!

Rear subframe body has separated from subframe mounting support. The chassis is no longer properly attached to the frame. The tied down bolts have sheared off. This is a major safety defect.

Having problems locking and unlocking doors! key will not unlock driver's door, manually or with remote. In order to enter car I have to leave one door unlocked. Can't even lock nor unlock doors from inside either. This is pathetic! there's a severe problem with this issue regarding the locks on the car this should definitely be a recall!
