problem #1

Jan 242005

Z3 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 27,000 miles
I have had various problems with my BMW Z3 2000¿¿internal water pump failure while on the freeway, rattling noises in the car because of the braking system, etc. Additionally, I have continually had the same problem year over year since I've owned the vehicle--the SRS light on the dash coming on due to the seat belt tensioner being faulty. On service dates 8/22/03, 12/05/03, 12/18/03, 1/10/04, 3/20/04, 9/10/04, 1/24/05, I have had the SRS problem fixed¿¿and the problem has yet to be repaired. The last time I came in (1/24/05), I talked with the service manager about the SRS problem and he told me that the problem with the SRS light should be fixed and should be covered under warranty, so I don¿¿T have to worry about it. I am scheduled to go in the week of July 11th for the SRS problem, along with engine problems. The seat belt tensioner actually holds a person in place--even when they shouldn't be held in place.
