Recall # 17V676, 17V683 it has been nearly a year and I'm still unable to make repair appointment with BMW dealer for reason of parts unavailable. My air conditioning system couldn't keep car cool enough as heat from the engine is high.

In November 2017 I received two (2) recall notices for my 2009 BMW 328I. I was advised that the blower motor wiring (recall campaign # 17V-676) and PCV valve heater (recall campaign # 17V-676) were defective. I was further notified that no remedy for either defect was available at that time. It is now September 2018. I have contacted BMW and been advised that at this time a remedy remains unavailable. I am considering selling or trading in my vehicle but because this recall has not yet been completed my resale price may be lowered. If two (2) recall repairs have not been performed 10 months after a recall notice has been issued, why bother issuing the recall notice in November 2017 if it is for any other purpose than bureaucratic paper shuffling for BMW to claim to the NHTSA that BMW is going to fix a defect while actually doing nothing to remedy the defect?

Car was running very bad both check engine lights came on with one blinking total loss of power. The car was taken to certified BMW dealer who replaced fuel injectors, valve and tuned it up cost 3500 didn't solve the problem they said it's gas to air ratio is not correct the car misfiring on all cylinders the BMW dealer wants to charge me another 1600-2700 dollars to fix it. After picking the car up after the first repaired I was back in 2 days later. Dreyer and reinbold is the dealership. Updated 11/24/2014

Highly dangerous gas has severe impact to occupants, car could not be driven as exhaust smell inside of car. BMW refuse to fix this under below mentioned recall as it does not include the cooler. Recall campaign no. 11E-A03: BMW voluntary emissions recall campaign scr catalyst, egr valve and/or def mixer and ECU software flash failed exhaust cooler makes the car illegal on road as it exceeds emission limits and is impacting the environment and is a health hazard.
