I took my car to a BMW dealership in cannonsburg, pa. Had no issues whatsoever dropping it off. I had driven 3 hours to get to the dealership for the recall. By the end of the day I received a call telling me my car was over heating and not drivable. How is that my responsibility" when obviously I drove it a long distance to get 3 recalls taken care of. I was told the water pump, I think was not working? it was working when I dropped it off" if it was overheating I could have never been able to drive it. Please help me figure out our to resolve this issue. I need my car and IżM regretting taking it in for a recall now.

Fuel injectors began leaking and have become faulty causing mis-firing. BMW had a similar recall involving cars with the same model year and engine as my car but has refused to claim it was also involved in the recall.

March 28, 2018 - driving on the freeway, car suddenly comes to a stop and shows message fuel pump with car on rock icon. Car gets towed. Next day mechanic says it ran out of gas, added gas started the car. March 29, 2018 car stalls after 5 miles near the ramp of exit. Get the car towed to another mechanic. Mechanic does not find any problems. April 14th, 2018 - car stops on the freeway. Tow it to mechanic mechanic says that its related to fuel tank sensor. This causes a wrong reading of level of gas in the car. Mechanic changes it and car runs ok for 2 months. June 21, 2018 - car stops on the freeway with the same message "service engine soon" with the car on rock icon. I get towing service to add gas and wait for an hour. Restart the car and it works. The message is gone, the icon is gone. This is the fourth time I was stranded on the freeway.

Starting with electrical the dash screen has been turning on and off on its own sins I bought the car. Dealer cant replicate problem because it only happens so often. Water pump and gas pump have gave me problems even after they fix it. After recall for heater issues, my car absorbs fumes from the engine. Adviser and supervisor from BMW dealer say that is normal cause that's where the car gets the heat from. Center divider from inside of the car gets extremely hot when I have heater on, to where I can feel the heat go through my jeans. Advisers and supervisor also state that is normal, because exhaust pipes run through there. None of this makes any sense to me. I've called corporate plenty of times through out the years and they tend to help at times. But this time I feel like I have a lemon problem. What can I do?

BMW issued a recall - si B13 14 10 - and it covers replacing injectors, if the car falls under a certain date and has a certain batch of injector. Most importantly, on the bottom of the recall bulletin states: "warranty info" - and it specifically says, "the repair described in this bulletin is covered under warranty regardless of time or mileage." The car had the injector(s) fail a few weeks ago, and vehicle is currently at stevens creek BMW. The dealers/manufacturer are refusing to honor the recall notice that I handed to them - even though it specifically states there is no time limit or mileage limit to replacing the injectors... 3 of the injectors were replaced several years ago, but 3 were not, and the injector that failed is part of the batch that should have been replaced but the technician decided not to years ago. They are saying this is not a recall - although it clearly says "voluntary recall". because there is no time limit and the miles do not count against the recall (according to the bulletin) the injectors should be replaecd (and should have already been) without any customer needing to pay anything, because that is what the recall is for and that is what it directly says. But the dealership (stevens creek BMW) and BMW na or saying they won't honor the recall or tell me why. I'm not sure what to do because my car is stranded over there and they want $3500 to replace something that BMW says should already be replaced (regardless of time or mileage).

Car taken to dealer for rough idle and poor performance. Told that issue was with fuel coils. Paperwork states that coils need to be replaced. Deferred as one of the could had already been replaced. On way home car began to emit white smoke. Car unable to accelerate. High pressure fuel pump already replaced. High risk for accident for ultimately turned out to be 5 failed fuel injectors. BMW knows about this issue but will not address for recall. This is not an uncommon occurrence per multiple web searches.

I was driving home from the dry cleaners. As I was trying to merge into the freeway, the car check engine light came on with about a 70% reduction in power. I couldnt merge onto the freeway safely, and had to pull tot he shoulder. The car is currently at BMW dealer for repairs. It has been suggested that it is due to the fuel pump.
