    In Nov 2013 I bought a F30 320D. Within the 1st week I complained about a rattle in the dash. BMW could in 2 years time not solved this problem. In Nov 2015 they convinced me that the 2014 and newer models were upgrade and doesn’t suffer from rattles. I (stupid idiot) bought a brand new one. Within the 1ste 2 weeks I had a car with a rattle(could have kept the old one,it would have been much cheaper. Although I’ve told them on purchasing the vehicle that if the vehicle rattles I would not allow them to work on an new vehicle and they would have to replace it,they asked me to let them try once to fix the problem. The car was handed to BMW Port Elizabeth where it spend a couple of days. The rattle was corrected,but returned within 2 months. Now they insist to try an fix it again as I am afraid that I am going down the same road as with the first F30. I have also been told in no uncertain terms that as far as rattles are concerned BMW is only responsible to try and solve it for 2 years. After that they have no responsibility towards me. This was never made known to me during the purchase. My frustration at this stage is that I am stuck with a vehicle that has rattles and is showing the exact same signs of rattles to come as I had in the first vehicle and BMW totally ignoring my request to either give me another vehicle of equal value or refund me(which I would prefer as the way I feel now I don’t want to see a BMW again). According to them they want to restore my trust in the BMW product. How can they restore trust if they don’t trust their own product enough to take it back,fix it and sell it with confidence to someone else. The way I feel now is that they will be wasting my time for the 2 years coming and then opt out as nobody at BMW is prepared to give me anything in writing of which way we are going. My previous experience included fraud and gross incompetence(anybody questioning this is free to phone me for evidence on 0836297664). In an effort to opt out I have ask the dealer to just sell the vehicle as a demo from their floor and I am still waiting for a response. My advise to anybody considering buying a BMW please be very careful,they will promise you a lot of things but you might end up like me and you might sit with a car that irritates the hell out of you or you might loose R50000.00 in 2weeks to 4 months time. So please be careful and exploit other options!! Better be safe than sorry.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I have a MBW X6 2014 Model which I bought it from Dubai showroom on 01/01/2014 (31st Dec’13 )

    I just want to inform you that I am very disappointed and Unhappy for my car which I have paid for it around 285,000 AED Plus Bank’s interest to buy a German’s car NOT US car !!

    When I decided to buy a car I bought a BMW car because I was looking for the quality , power and strong car that’s why I went to BMW showroom . I was not aware that the car has been made in US , Maybe the car’s engine is Germany but other than this are US material which cannot be compared to the Germany parts quality at all !!!

    When the salesman showed me the car in the catalogue and in the computer he told me that the color is MID NIGHT BLUE but I bought the car the color was really disappointed and not as per the photos at all !!!!

    Also after few months they have replaced the small box inside the car and the lighter is still not working , the interior leather is very bad in terms of quality and even the paint inside and outside is not as per expectation especially the plastic part in the car !! there are so many things in the car which really surprised me. This is kind of cheating customers and will impact your reputation as an international leading company !!

    Finally I wrote this letter to your company to inform you that you have lost so many customers and you will lose more also if Germany’s cars will be keep making it in US . I personally planning to sell my car at any cost now and I am not recommending any of my friends to buy BMW .

    If you provide me with your e mail I can send you photos of my car where you can see all what I am taking about on the above.

    I purchased a brand new BMW X1 in October 2011. September 2014 I replaced my tyres with the same make, same size of the original tyres that, I bought the car with (Pirelli 225/50 R17 Run flat)and then the nightmare started. My car started pulling to the left and I took it in for wheel alignment at tiger wheel and tyres and they told me to take the car to BMW to replace the bush. I took my car to Auto Bavaria Midrand and told them that, my car has new wheels, wheel alignment has been done but, the car pulls to the left and the wheel alignment people says that, a bush needs to be replaced for it to stop pulling to the left. Auto Bavaria checked the car and told me that, there is nothing wrong with the bush and they also did the wheel alignment which also did not help because when I drove the car it was still pulling to the left. I went back to Auto Bavaria and told them that my car’s still pulling to the left, they kept the car with them for 2days and told me that, they have called the specialist in wheel alignment to check it out. Third day I got my car back and it was still pulling to the left, I went again told Auto Bavaria and told them that, my car was still pulling to the left I was told that, that’s the best they could do for me and also informed me that, I was supposed to have replaced my tyres with a different make of tyres from the cars original tyres and was also told that, all the first X1’s have this problem and only the recent one’s don’t have this problem. Mind you BMW did not tell the public or should I say they kept this to themselves and sold problematic cars to the public.

    I have been a loyal client of BMW and this is my third car but, this……….???? Please, please, please do something I need help I am not enjoying my car and I am not getting any help from BMW.

    I have come to the conclusion that BMW is shipping their scrapmetal motorcycles to SA. I bought a BMW 1150RT. The vibration on the bike was so bad that the inside of the exhaust fell to pieces. All relevant nuts and bolts had to be glued in. Secondly the vibration is so bad that the speedometer needle fell off. Thirdly. I cannot ride my bike for more than 100 kms without my hands going numb from the vibration. Fouthly. The headlight globe had to be replaced twice within 60000 kms due to this vibration. Our local BMW dealers laugh at me and tell me that the vibration is a charactaristic of the bike.As far as I am concerned this is a motor problem. I spend my Sunday rides free wheeling in neutral most of the time, because that is the only time I do not feel any vibration. Is there anyone out there that can advise me what to do.

    I do not know who to contact any more ! I Hope you can help

    I am in Cancun Mexico, I got an X5 last year (First experience with BMW). Last November I got into a small car accident, the damage was not a lot, but the air basgs opened. The car was transfer by the insurance company to the BMW Dealer here in Cancun (Farrera Peninsula SA de CV)mid December (almost two to three weeks after the ccident), the cost of the damages has been authorized by the insurance company since then, but the agency said they havn´t receive all the parts. Today 1 1/2 months after they got the car at the BMW, they told me they are missing the air bags and some other parts, which are coming “by boat” from Germany !!!! (A boat !! This is unacceptable from a company like BMW, a big insult to my inteligence )They havn´t even started to repair the car. Honestly dealing with BMW has been a nightmare. The serial number of the car is L808281 if it helps.

    I hope you will be able to help !

    Regards

    Hi

    I ordered a BMW 3.16 Sedan from Pakistan – BMW Dealership (Islamabad) a few months ago. After payment of initial deposit, I was informed that I would get my care delivered in mid-October. Upon my follow-up now, the Dealership has informed me (verbally), without any written response, that they have made an error in my LC for shipment and the ‘pro forma invoice was wrong’. Due to this, I’ll now get my car in mid-December. I’m quite disturbed as why I should be the one suffering from this delay due to errors on part of BMW dealership.

    What is more frustrating is that I have not been informed on this formally and this has only come up after my repeated follow up with the dealership for about 10 days.

    I hope you’ll be able to resolve this quickly.

    Regards

    This email has been sent to BMW Customer Service and my dealership. Does anyone else have issues with X3 3.0L DIESEL AUTO M SPORT? Specifically Torque Converter or Gearbox?

    Hi BMW Customer Services,

    I would like to register a complaint with BMW as to the length of time it is taking to resolve the issues with my car which is 9 months old and has 15K miles on the clock.

    • The car had been running lumpy and a grating noise could be heard so I booked it in, at Lloyds BMW Colne on 15 March 2013, for its first service which was a little early but I was concerned. Lloyds were asked to investigate the noise I was experiencing at the same time as servicing the car.
    • The car was serviced and returned to my home but on driving it for the first time on 18/3/13 the noise I had reported was very apparent and it hadn’t been fixed so the car was returned to the garage on 19/3/13
    • Lloyds have been investigating the problem ever since and originally felt that it could be a gearbox issue. Lloyds then entered into a slow and laborious dialogue with BMW Technical who felt that the symptoms pointed to a Torque convertor issue.
    • I attended Lloyds BMW last Wednesday 27/3/13 and was advised that they had all the parts in stock for fixing the Torque Convertor and that it would take a day to complete the work but that they were still waiting for final approval from BMW Technical to proceed.
    • The work has commenced on my car today 2/4/13 and in the process of fixing the Torque Convertor issue they have now found metal filings in the gearbox oil and have had to go back to BMW Technical to get the work approved to replace the gearbox; the gearbox is clearly faulty.
    • The request to replace the gearbox was processed today 2/4/13 and gear boxes are on 10 days back order.

    As I am sure you can appreciate I am now beyond frustrated at the length of time it has taken to get to the root cause of the problem and it looks as though Lloyds could have my car for a further two weeks if you can’t get a new gearbox to them quickly as the back order time frames are currently showing 10 days for this part.

    I have been a BMW customer for many years and would have expected that a luxury manufacturer, such as yourselves, offered a better level of service, particularly when the vehicle is so new with so few miles and under full warranty. I am hugely disappointed and would strongly suggest that BMW review their protocols and policies for sanctioning warranty work. Ultimately I am not only a customer but a repeat customer and if you put no store in that type of customer perhaps I should consider moving to another manufacturer next time I change my vehicle?

    I do hope that this complaint finds its way to the desk of a senior member of staff who works within your warranty/technical department and I look forward to receiving a call from them as to why I have been so seriously inconvenienced

      I am having similar problems but with a Motor bike. I am dealing with BMW Vienna directly but I feel they are not listening to my issues..
      I bought a NEW R1200GS Water Cooled bike in October 2013 and made some observations (Complaints) when I drove it on the first day. The dealer smiled and did not really pay attention.
      I guess they had my money and why would a NEW bike have any problems We are BMW afterall… Right?

      And thats the attitude I am still getting till this day.

      I visited a small BMW showroom a couple of weeks ago and mentioned one of the issues to the sales man and he laughed. Saying that there has been a RECAL for the problem and I should have had the parts replaced under warranty… Can you imagine my disgust on hearing this…?
      I then started talking to him about the breaking problems and he told me it is a known issue but BMW is not responding to it as there is not enough of us complaining.. lol…
      So its a case of someone has to be injured or killed before they sit up and take notice..

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2267144/Kevin-Ash-British-motorcycle-writer-killed-accident-fellow-journalists-trying-BMW-motorcycle-press-launch.html

      Ask the family of this British Motorcycle Journalist how they feel about BMW..?

      I do not want my wife and kids fighting my case because they did not want to pay attention to a fault I knew existed.
      I have to say I have lost a lot of confidence in BMW… I always rode HONDA and Yamaha for over 30 years and was always happy with their products.
      BMW have really made me think about selling this and going back to the superior brands….

      What do we have to do to make them listen… ?

    Hi As there is NO assistance from BMW South Africa I am pleading with every BMW complaints center until it can get to BMW German.

    Dear Reader

    On 10 November 2011, I purchased a BMW 740I from BMW JSN Motors. The vehicle was financed through BMW finance and the cost is as follows, note that I also traded in my BMW X5.

    Purchase Price of BMW 740I – R563 500.00
    Deposit paid by me – R 50 000.00
    Difference – R513 500.00

    Still owing on X5 – R315 000.00
    JSN Offered – R210 000.00
    Difference – R105 000.00

    The vehicle contract was R750 000.00 less the discount and the deposit is
    R620 166.12 (Principal Amount)

    On the day I fetched the vehicle (10/11/2011), I reported to the salesman that the vehicle had a couple of issues. He (Alan King) advised me to keep the vehicle for a few more days to see if the problems persisted. Alan King supposedly had made arrangements for the vehicle to booked in on the 21 November 2011. This, however, was not the case, when we took the vehicle to be booked in, we realised that no bookings were made and Alan King no longer worked at JSN motors. Nevertheless, JSN vowed to have the vehicle booked in the following day.

    The problems reported were as follows:

    • After pressing the start/stop button to start the car, it literally takes up to 5 minutes to start (the engine swings continuously). This created a loud noise from the engine.
    • The windscreen had a chip
    • The tyres squeaked without pressing the brakes
    • The aircon vents did not work
    • When driving it sounded like the doors were opened (noisy inside the vehicle)

    On the 21 November 2011 at 07:20, the vehicle was taken to JSN motors as the problems persisted. During the course of Monday, my wife received two telephone calls from Kevin Govinden informing her that the car will not be ready today, however, will be ready for collection on Tuesday. On Tuesday, my wife received one telephone call whilst she was in meeting from Kevin. He left a voice message saying that the car will not be ready today but will be ready tomorrow. My wife called Kevin when she came out her meeting which was approximately 15h30, Kevin told her the same thing. She then relayed her disappointment in having to wait yet another day to get the car. She asked Kevin if he would be able to fetch her from Sandton on Wednesday and Kevin agreed. She asked him if he could provide feedback first thing Wednesday morning and he agreed to this too.

    On Wednesday morning, my wife called Kevin to find out what has been done on the car and what was still outstanding. She was assured by Kevin that he would find out and call her back. One hour later, she called him back and he had forgotten. He then went to find out the progress and called her after another hour went by. He told her that they are sorting out the brakes, they need to get the tyre out first. Everything else on the job card was done except the brakes and the airvent. The airvent would be sorted out another day as this had to be ordered and delivered. My wife asked Kevin again if he was sure that everything else on the job card was completed and he assured her that it was.

    Kevin called my wife again in the middle of the day saying that the technicians are having problems with getting the tyre out, they left JSN at 12h00 and will be back at 13h00 as they had to get more tools. Kevin called again after 14h00 saying that the technicians have arrived (this was 2 hours later) but he does not think the car will be ready today. My wife informed him that she needed the car and explained that we have kids and they need to be dropped off for school and picked up and this was really causing us a lot of unnecessary inconvenience.

    My wife then called me frustrated that the car was still not ready. I then fetched her and we both came over to JSN, we got there at 15h20. Kevin then came to us at 15h35 and I went down to the Workshop with him. I told him that if he can get us a courtesy vehicle then it shouldn’t be a problem but we needed a vehicle. He then went to talk to other customers, leaving us standing at reception with no idea what was going on. At 15h55, he tells us that he will speak to his manager about the car. At 16h10 he informs me that there are no courtesy vehicles and he cannot help us.

    I then asked him to please get my vehicle out of the Workshop, I will take it now. I explained to him that I did not have a vehicle and I needed a vehicle, if he could not provide me with a courtesy vehicle then I would need my vehicle. I then waited till after 17h00 and my car was still not out the Workshop, I then left JSN Motors.

    I sent the GM: JSN an email wherein I informed him of what had transpired, he apologised and undertook to resolve the matter. I was then contacted by two individuals from JSN Motors, Grant and Michael King. Michael King informed me on 8 December 2011, that JSN Motors would cancel the agreement, however, I had to pay in a shortfall amount of R 75 993.86.

    I then requested the reason as to why I need to pay in this amount, NO feedback was given by either Stavros (MD of JSN) nor Mr King. Due to lack of response from JSN motors, attorneys were appointed by myself, prior to their appoint I personally sent through an email to BMW finance informing them of this decision.

    My lawyers have also sent through letters to both JSN Motors and BMW Finance, and they both have not come back.

    I have recently (01 March 2012) received a mail from BMW Finance stating that if I don’t take the vehicle back, they will auction the vehicle off at its current value R375 500.00 and I will be liable for the outstanding monies.

    This to me is a form of black mail, and threat that if I don’t take possession of an un-roadworthy vehicle they will sell it and I must pay in the difference. JSN motors and BMW Finance, in my opinion have no consideration for the client, have no consideration for the law and disregard the consumer act.

    I have pleaded with them on many occasions to resolve this matter amicably, and to see if we can come to some sort of agreement, but neither party is willing.

    In the meanwhile, I am being inconvenienced having only one vehicle to use and to transport 3 kids to school and 2 adults to work. I am still paying for insurance and the tracker on a vehicle that I don’t have. To top it off, I am paying lawyers’ fees. And my name in terms of my credit worthiness is being dragged through the mud. I have NEVER missed a payment on ANY account and now this

    And today BMW says that I now need to pay them R168 567.65 for a vehicle that I don’t have.
