BMW 545I 2005 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Report #10326412

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 18, 2010.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . 1. THE EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE FAILURE - BRAKE LOSS 2. THE FAILURE, HOW OFTEN IT OCCURS, ITS CONSEQUENCES: THIS STARTED ABOUT 3-4 MONTHS AGO. I WAS DRIVING ABOUT 25-30MPH AND HAD TO STOP BECAUSE THE LIGHT TURNED RED. I STEPPED ON THE BRAKES BUT MY CAR DID NOT STOPPED. IT FELT LIKE I WAS STEPPING ON A BRICK BUT THERE WAS NO BRAKE PRESSURE. I PULLED THE E-BRAKE, TURNED OFF THE CAR AND TURNED IT BACK ON AGAIN AND IT WAS OK AFTER THAT. I IGNORED THAT ISSUE THINKING IT WAS JUST A PHANTOM ISSUE - JUST LIKE MOST ELECTRICAL ISSUES WITH BMW'S. I DON'T DRIVE MY CAR EVERYDAY - MAYBE ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK AT THE MOST. AFTER A FEW WEEKS, I HAD THE SAME ISSUE AGAIN, IT HAPPENED TO ME TWICE. SAME SCENARIO - DRIVING ABOUT 30-35MPH. IT IS NOT SPONGY (I KNOW FOR SURE IF IT WAS CAUSED BY AIR ON THE BRAKE SYSTEM) - IT DEFINITELY FELT LIKE STEPPING ON A BRICK, AS IN LITERAL BRICK. I THOUGHT MAYBE I HAVE TO CHANGE THE BRAKE FLUID SINCE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS REPLACING THE FLUID EVERY 2 YEARS. ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO, I WAS DRIVING AT THE INTERSTATE DRIVING ABOUT 70MPH, I HAD TO PRESS MY BRAKE BECAUSE A LOW MOVING VEHICLE MOVED IN FRONT OF ME. I HAVE TO PRESS THE BRAKE THEN HAD THE SAME ISSUE AGAIN. I HAVE TO DRIVE ON THE LEFT PAVED SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE TO AVOID COLLIDING WITH THE VAN IN FRONT OF ME. YESTERDAY, I CHANGED MY BRAKE FLUID. WENT TO THE GROCERIES TO TEST DRIVE IT. DRIVING ABOUT 15-25MPH ON TRAFFIC - HAD THE SAME ISSUE AGAIN. NO BRAKES, NO PRESSURE, FELT LIKE STEPPING ON A BRICK. TURNED OF ENGINE AND TURNED IT BACK ON - WENT BACK TO NORMAL. *TR.Mileage was 43000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANB33565B. Bmw 545i 2005 problem was reported in GAINESVILLE, VA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Vehicle had 8 CYLINDERS. VEHICLE SPEED: 30 mph.

BMW 545I 2005 Power Train Automatic Transmission Report #10344180

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2010.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . I PURCHASED MY USED 2005 BMW 545I WITH ONLY 55K MILES ON IT IN MAY 2009. ON OR ABOUT MARCH 2010, THE VEHICLE STARTED JERKING DURING ACCELERATION AND SOMETIMES A HARD "JOLT" AS IF YOU HIT A LARGE OBJECT IN THE ROAD OR HIT BY ANOTHER VEHICLE FROM THE REAR. ON ACCELERATION, THE CAR WILL SOMETIMES REV WAY UP, WITHOUT ENGAGING THE TRANSMISSION, AND THEN SLAM INTO ACTION SO FAST THAT IT FEELS LIKE BEING HIT FROM BEHIND. IT IS LIFE-THREATENINGLY DANGEROUS, BECAUSE WHEN IT HAPPENS, IT IS SUCH A SHOCK YOU ARE DISTRACTED FROM DRIVING. IT NORMALLY HAPPENS FROM A FULL STOP, BUT HAS HAPPENED ON THE FREEWAY NUMEROUS TIMES AS I WAS TRYING TO MOVE FROM A SLOW LANE TO A FASTER LANE. WHEN IT SLAMS, THE NATURAL TENDENCY IS TO LET OFF THE GAS, HOWEVER, THERE WAS FASTER TRAFFIC APPROACHING FROM THE REAR, AND I ALMOST GOT HIT.

BMW 545I 2005 Electrical System Report #10344180

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2010.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . I PURCHASED MY USED 2005 BMW 545I WITH ONLY 55K MILES ON IT IN MAY 2009. ON OR ABOUT MARCH 2010, THE VEHICLE STARTED JERKING DURING ACCELERATION AND SOMETIMES A HARD "JOLT" AS IF YOU HIT A LARGE OBJECT IN THE ROAD OR HIT BY ANOTHER VEHICLE FROM THE REAR. ON ACCELERATION, THE CAR WILL SOMETIMES REV WAY UP, WITHOUT ENGAGING THE TRANSMISSION, AND THEN SLAM INTO ACTION SO FAST THAT IT FEELS LIKE BEING HIT FROM BEHIND. IT IS LIFE-THREATENINGLY DANGEROUS, BECAUSE WHEN IT HAPPENS, IT IS SUCH A SHOCK YOU ARE DISTRACTED FROM DRIVING. IT NORMALLY HAPPENS FROM A FULL STOP, BUT HAS HAPPENED ON THE FREEWAY NUMEROUS TIMES AS I WAS TRYING TO MOVE FROM A SLOW LANE TO A FASTER LANE. WHEN IT SLAMS, THE NATURAL TENDENCY IS TO LET OFF THE GAS, HOWEVER, THERE WAS FASTER TRAFFIC APPROACHING FROM THE REAR, AND I ALMOST GOT HIT. AFTER CHECKING POPULAR BMW OWNER WEBSITES SUCH AS BIMMERFEST, I NOTICED THERE WERE COUNTLESS OWNERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE SAME MODEL YEARS (2004-2005 545I) WHICH HAS THE V-8 ENGINE AND DRIVE TRAIN.

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2010.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with TIRES . I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF A CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED 2005 BMW 545I. I PURCHASED THE CAR IN JAN 2009 FROM BMW OF PLEASANT GROVE IN SALT LAKE CITY UTAH WITH APPROX. 35,000 MILES. WHEN I DROVE THE CAR OUT OF THE DEALERSHIP IT HAD DUNLOP RUN-FLAT TIRES ON IT. BY AUGUST 31ST 2010 THE CAR HAD APPROXIMATELY 58,000 MILES ON IT AND NEEDED REPLACEMENT TIRES. I TOOK IT TO DISCOUNT TIRE IN SAN DIEGO(PACIFIC BEACH LOCATION) AND HAD (4) NEW MICHELIN TIRES INSTALLED. I DROVE HOME AND THE NEXT DAY ON SEPTEMBER 1ST 2010 WHILE DRIVING TO WORK ONE OF THE TIRES WENT FLAT. I RETURNED TO DISCOUNT TIRE THAT EVENING AND THEY RE-INFLATED THE TIRE AND PLACED IT INTO A WATER TANK TO CHECK FOR LEAKS. THAT IS WHEN THE EMPLOYEE TOLD ME THAT I HAD A CRACKED RIM. I CONTACTED THE BMW OF SAN DIEGO DEALERSHIP REGARDING THIS ISSUE AND AFTER INSPECTING THE RIM THEY STATED THE RIM CRACKED AND "FAILED DUE TO IMPACT" AND CLAIMED THAT I HAD MOST LIKELY HIT A CURB OR A LARGE POT HOLE WHICH CAUSED THE RIM TO CRACK. I WAS FORCED TO BUY A NEW RIM FOR $363 DOLLARS. I AM NOT THE ONLY BMW OWNER WITH THIS PROBLEM. WHILE I WAS AT DISCOUNT TIRE ON SEPTEMBER 1ST 2010 A GENTLEMEN DRIVING A 2005 645I CAME IN AND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM- CRACKED REAR RIM. THE MANAGER AT DISCOUNT TIRE STATED HE SEES 4-5 BMW'S PER WEEK THAT COME IN WITH CRACKED RIMS. BMW REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RIMS ON THEIR VEHICLES ARE NOT PROPERLY DESIGNED, ENGINEERED, OR MANUFACTURED TO WITHSTAND NORMAL DAILY DRIVING CONDITIONS. I HAVE OWNED AND DRIVEN 6 CARS IN MY LIFE AND NEVER ONCE HAVE I CRACKED A RIM IN THE COURSE OF NORMAL DAILY DRIVING. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD. IF A RIM WERE TO CRACK AND FAIL AT HIGH SPEED DURING INTERSTATE DRIVING CONDITIONS OVER 65 MPH THIS COULD CAUSE A FATALITY. GREAT BRITAIN CURRENTLY HAS AN INVESTIGATION ONGOING TO LOOK INTO THE PROBLEM WITH ALL OF THE CRACKED/FAULTY BMW RIMS IN THEIR COUNTRY. THE NHTSA NEEDS TO INVESTIGATE THIS AS A MATTER OF PUBLIC SAFETY. *TR.Mileage was 58474 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANB33565C. Bmw 545i 2005 problem was reported in SAN DIEGO, CA.

BMW 545I 2005 Air Bags Report #10490393

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 26, 2012.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with AIR BAGS . GOT INDICATION PASSENGER AIR BAG/ RESTRAINT SYSTEM MALFUNCTION ON IDRIVE. TOOK CAR TO REPAIR SHOP AND I WAS TOLD OCCUPANCY SENSOR IN PASSENGER SEAT WAS BAD. I CHECKED FOR A RECALL FOR THIS VEHICLE WITH BMW. I WAS TOLD NO RECALLS FOR THIS PROBLEM ON THIS VEHICLE WAS COVERED. I CHECKED WITH THE PARTS DEPARTMENT AND WAS TOLD THERE WAS ONLY ONE SENSOR FOR THIS CAR. IF THAT'S THE CASE HOW CAN BMW ONLY COVER 200,00 OF THE DEFECTIVE UNITS AND NOT ALL THAT WERE MADE DURING THIS TIME PERIOD. FURTHER, ON THE ONES THEY DID COVER THEY INCREASED THE WARRANTY PERIOD TO 10 YEARS FROM DATE OF ORIGINAL SALE WITH NO MILEAGE RESTRICTIONS? IT SEEMS TO ME A DEAL WAS MADE WITH THE NTSB TO COVER AT LEAST SOME OF THE DEFECTIVE UNITS BUT NOT ALL. BY EXTENDING THE WARRANTY PERIOD TO 10 YEARS ON THE SAME PART THAT IS USED IN ALL VEHICLES ON THIS CLASS, INDICATES BMW HAS ADMITTED ALL THE PARTS ARE FAULTY. BMW SHOULD INCLUDE ALL VEHICLES THAT USE THIS PART IN THE RECALL, RECALL #08V384000 NOT JUST A LIMITED NUMBER. ACCORDING TO MY RECORDS THIS IS THE SECOND OCCURRENCE OF THIS ISSUE, AND WELL BEFORE 2015 WHEN THE 10 YEAR WARRANTY EXTENSION WOULD HAVE EXPIRED. ALSO THIS INDICATES THE REPLACEMENT SENSOR ARE NOT HOLDING UP WELL. IT IS MY OPINION A PROGRAMMING CHANGE SHOULD BE MADE, WHERE THE ONBOARD COMPUTER, CONTROLLING THE AIR BAG, USES A INPUT FROM A SEAT BELT CONNECT SENSOR TO DETERMINE IF THE PASSENGER SEAT IS OCCUPIED? NOT THE FAULTY MAT IN THE SEAT. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 84525 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANB33545B.

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 03, 2012.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . I WAS JACKING UP MY BMW IN MY GARAGE USING A PROPER FLOOR JACK ON THE RIGHT SIDE REAR JACKPOINT STAND BUILT TO JACK THE CAR UP FROM THE RIGHT REAR. THE JACKPOINT FAILED AFTER IT WAS APPROXIMATELY 6 INCHES OFF GROUND, AND THE VEHICLE DROPPED BACK TO THE FLOOR WHERE THE ENTIRE JACKPOINT WAS NOW COLLAPSED INSIDE OF THE FRAME. I CONTACTED BMW DEALER IN CHAPEL HILL,NC, AND ALSO BMWNA WHO OPENED A CASE UNDER MY VIN NUMBER, AND HAD ME BRING THE VEHICLE INTO THE DEALER FOR AN INSPECTION, AND THAT THEY WOULD LOOK THINGS OVER, AND CORRECT THE SITUATION. THE DEALER TOOK 4 WEEKS TO GET BACK, AND TOLD ME THEY NEEDED TO SEE THE CAR AGAIN TO TAKE PHOTOS, AND LOOK IT OVER AGAIN SO I TOOK IT BACK TO THE SAME DEALER IN CHAPEL HILL, NC (PERFORMANCEBMW). THEY TOOK ANOTHER 4 WEEKS, AND ASKED IF I COULD BRING IT BACK AGAIN AS THEY NEEDED A SPECIALIST WHO TRAVELS TO THE DEALERSHIP TO LOOK OVER THE VEHICLE, AND SO I TOOK IT IN AGAIN A 3RD TIME. I THOUGHT FINALLY THEY WOULD RESOLVE THIS ISSUE, BUT AFTER THE 3RD VISIT THEY HAVE NEGLECTED TO CONTACT ME BACK, AND UPON MYSELF CONTACTING THEM 2 -3 WEEKS AFTER THE VISIT I WAS TOLD IT WOULD NOT BE COVERED ,AND THAT BMWNA WOULD TAKE NO FURTHER ACTION INTO REPAIRING MY VEHICLE.

THE FRAME DID NOT HAVE ANY DAMAGE WHATSOEVER UNTIL THIS JACKPOINT FAILURE, AND NOW THEY JUST WANT TO NOT RETURN MY CALLS, AND NOT HELP AT ALL. ANYONE LOOKING CAN CLEARLY SEE THE JACKPOINT BROKE ON THE INSIDE, AND YOU CAN SEE THE WELD POINTS THAT HAVE FAILED ON THE FRAME. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY DO TO HELP WITH THIS SINCE IT IS A SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN. THE FIX WOULD MEAN PULLING THE JACKPOINT BACK DOWN FROM THE INSIDE OF THE FRAME, AND RE-WELDING THE SIDE OF THE JACKPOINT. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 54000 miles.

BMW 545I 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2004.BMW 545I 2005, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN . FOR MANY YEARS, AND AFTER MANY "REPAIRS" MY 2005 BMW 545I, WHICH I BOUGHT NEW, HAS NEVER RUN RIGHT. BMW IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM, DOES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS AN ISSUE, BUT HAS BEEN UNABLE TO REPAIR IT. I HAVE SPENT MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN SEARCH OF A PERMANENT FIX, BUT THE LAST BMW DEALER I DEALT IS MIFFED ON SOLVING THE PROBLEM. WHEN APPROACHING BETWEEN 25-35 MPH, THE TRANSMISSION "SLAMS" AND FEELS LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN REAR-ENDED. IT IS A CONTINUOUS PROBLEM. I HAVE TO SLIGHTLY LET UP ON THE GAS IN THESE SPEEDS IN ORDER FOR THE CAR TO RUN RIGHT WITHOUT AN EMERGENCY LIGHT COMING ON SAYING "TRANSMISSION FAULT; DRIVE MODERATELY." THIS CAN BE A DANGEROUS SITUATION BECAUSE THE CAR IS SENSING THE FAULT AND IT WILL NOT ALLOW ONE TO DRIVE MUCH ABOVE 50 MPH WITHOUT STRAINING THE ENGINE. GOING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AT 50MPH IN MY AREA CAN BE A HAZARDOUS ACTIVITY! THIS HAS BEEN A CONTINUOUS SITUATION WITH THE CAR SINCE I PURCHASED IT UP AND THRU THE PRESENT DATE, AUG, 21, 2014. I HAVE NO FAITH IN THE ENGINE/POWER TRAIN/TRANSMISSION. THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST BMW. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 5000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBANB33505B. Bmw 545i 2005 problem was reported in MARIETTA, GA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 35 mph.
