325 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles
The contact owns a 2001 BMW 325I. When the contact attempted to accelerate, the vehicle automatically began to brake. The travel speed was not a factor. The dsc/adb lights (automatic differential braking) were the only warning indicators. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The contact has since turned off the dsc/adb lights. The engine size, purchase date, and correct VIN were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 46,000.
