Vehicle wasn't driving properly, constantly putting 1 qt of oil in vehicle every 2 weeks because I would get a message on dash saying low oil. I took my vehicle to dealership and they said not showing a problem. They ran diagnostic test and still nothing. Same issue happen again and more test were run and finally they said it was fuel pump system and it was fixed. The oil issue continued on until my check engine light came on and I took it to the dealership yet again and they don't know what the problem is. They've had my vehicle for 3 weeks, took engine apart, talked to their master tech and no one can tell me what's wrong with my vehicle. At this point I feel its a lemon and don't want the vehicle back. I feel unsafe driving it and think the dealership should give me a new vehicle and reimburse me for a car rental, mileage, time and energy wasted because I complained about this problem previously and they did nothing, . I've contacted corporate and all im told is give the dealership time to fix the vehicle....its been 3 [xxx] weeks and still they don't know what's going on. Customer service treatment is horrible, I will never buy this another BMW product again! I advise people to not buy this vehicle at all a waste of time and money--- information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
