problem #1

  • miles
Warning lights did not appear until about 4th episode of brake problem. Computer found it necessary to activate ABS because of rotor failure. Difficult to stop. Immediate repair activity instituted when I took it to dealer, BMW. Good dealer response. Too soon to have such failure on vehicle. Lites should have come on fist time I felt the ABS deployed (@ low mph).
