problem #2

528 I 4 Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

I had a warning light drive train malfunction on and off. It happened for a few minutes then would go off. I have it checked. garage ran the diagnostics and nothing showed up. There was no change in performance, no noise, etc. Several weeks later, same light went on, followed by low oil pressure, then car shut off. Had it evaluated, said needed a new engine. Subsequently repair shop said this is the third engine they have replaced on a 2013 BMW in the past month.

problem #1

528 4 cyl Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 135,000 miles

Dealer denied that engine had issue, but found many others with same issue. I replaced with a new factory engine. Also need rebuilt turbo and new air conditioning unit. Do not know if related issue. It appears BMW and the Dealers are not taking responsibility. Very frustrating.
