BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on Oct 20, 2004.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS . blinded by high intensity headlamps. almost lost control of vehicle. first, let me thank you for closing down the distribution of after-market hi devices made by amtex in dayton, tx. the after-market ones are particularly dangerous because they are placed in headlights not designed for the hi intensity lamps. these headlamps are a continuing problem, especially the blue-white lamps. some are so intense as to cause pain - like looking into a welder's electric arc. these lamps may be ok on the autobahn, but they have no place in urban crowded freeways. not only are the direct beams distracting and dangerous, but even reflected (from other vehicles and wet roadways) light causes problems. this is a very serious problem, and one that is admitedly hard to quantify - who can say how many accidents have been caused by drivers blinded by these lights. notable offenders are bmw-late models, honda - especially accord & acura, lexus, and audi. many of the high-end, expensive foreign-made vehicles tend to have these obnoxious lamps as standard equipment. enough is enough! it's time to get these dangerous irritants off the road!*ak.Bmw X3 2004 problem was reported in CYPRESS, TX.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2000.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with OTHER . copy of email sent to bmw usa re: x3 i learned today that my new x3 has no display panel warning light or sound to warn when doors are unlatched or ajar. this type of warning -- often using both panel lights and sound -- has been standard equipment in most cars for the past 20 years to protect passengers, especially children, from accidentally falling out of vehicles. my own bmw dealer refused to believe that my x3 had no such warning device until he finally checked his inventory and found no x3's with any door warning lights or sounds. he said there is no applicable repair or upgrade kit. this exclusion is shocking in view of bmw's pledge of safety. your us headquarters admitted the exclusion and said there was no explanation for it, adding that it must be intentional since "bmw engineers don't do things acidentally." in the event an occupant is injured or killed in a loose latch door release accident, this exclusion could establish liability. as such, in bmw's own interest, i urge you to contact all owners and immediately launch a voluntary recall of all x3's to install a door/tailgate loose latch warning device on the dashboard display panel. no need to contact me. to avoid retaliation, i have elected not to disclose my name. thank you. copies to us nhtsa, center for auto safety and consumer union.Bmw X3 2004 problem was reported in NOCITY, AL.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on Apr 11, 2004.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with OTHER . i purchased a bmw x3 last april. i did not immediately notice that the car did not have any audible or visual warning displays when the car or back hatch is open or ajar before i purchased it. i noticed it right after the purchase and reported it to the engineer who said he would pass on the info. i then took it to the dealership who said they could not help me and ultimately escalated to bmw corporate. bmw indicates there is no safety regulation that requires that the car have a warning system when the car door is open or ajar. the car was designed without that feature. i find this strange since all their other cars, as well as all other cars made today, come standard with this safety feature. my question is whether or not there is any type of regulation concerning this because i need further escalate the issue with the bmw if this is a requirement.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):WBXPA93404W.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on Aug 25, 2004.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i purchased a 2004 bmw 325xi in march of 2004 from hunterdon bmw in lebanon, new jersey. at 10,000 miles, my transmission malfunctioned, light kept coming on so they replaced the valve body. a week later, the transmission light came on again. this time hunterdon bmw had my car in the service department over 2 weeks and replaced my transmission. however, they replaced my new transmission with a used transmission, which i tried to fight because i bought a new car, not a used car, but they kept telling me it was their "policy". they also refused to tell me how many miles this transmission had on it, they refused to tell me if it was even a bmw transmission, and they refused to extend my warranty on the transmission to reflect the amount of miles that was on the car. furthermore, after they replaced the transmission, the car jumped/jerked at intermittent times when i was accelerating or decelerating. when i brought it into the service department to check on it, they said they couldn't duplicate the problem ? and talked to me as if it was not happening. this leaves my safety at stake when i drive. now, a few months later, i had to bring my car in for service again: the car squeaks when it starts, the squeaking turned out to be the ac & drive belt - so they replaced it. i picked up the car only to find that the car is still squeakingit is not a safe vehicle to be in. furthermore the loaner car, which was exactly the same as mine, drove 100 times smoother than mine. hunterdon bmw sold me a defective vehicle.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 12000 miles.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on Jan 26, 2014.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with SEATS . approximately 1 year ago i purchased for my daughter a 2004 used bmw x3 2.5i. the car has run fine so far but in the evening of the 26th of january 2014 something very dangerous happened with the front driver seat heating system. she was driving and she notice a smell of burnt material inside the car, and looked down to see that the seat heater had burned through the left bottom side and had singed her pants. she of course was very scared and all most went out of the road for this! there is burnt a hole in the front driver seat and for the moment i pulled the fuses of the seat heating system (fuses was still ok and did not shut the system off!!). i have been calling bmw north america for more than a month, they sent me to a bmw local dealer where they inspect and made picture of the seat. bmw n.a. ([xxx]) finally told me that they would pay only 50% of the repair cost ($800 my part) and the offer is valid only for 20 days after this the offer would not be valid anymore. i feel that this is a very serious safety problem and saw in internet that this is a common problem for this year/model. i strongly believe that bmw not only should repair the seat for free but should also initiate a proper recall to avoid this very serious driving safety issue. please help. thank you best regards information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr.Vehicle was on fire. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 148000 miles.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on May 22, 2015.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i was arriving at my daughter's home in decatur ga just before 9:00 a.m. on friday, may 22, 2015. i pulled into her driveway but could see here was no room to park there due to the construction debris next door (from the new house being built). i decided to back out of her driveway and park on the street. i put the bmw x3 in reverse and it slowly (as usual) began moving backwards. with no foot on gas pedal, my car came to a stop at a slight incline. i reached my right foot over and tapped the tip top of my gas pedal, hoping just a small tap of gas could get me over the incline. just as i did this, the pedal dropped to the floor and the car revved, then lunged backwards. i was holding the brakes as tight as i could and within a few second brought my left leg to help push on brake with both feet. the brake could not stop the full force of the car moving backwards at full throttle, and left black skid marks in her driveway. my car speed in reverse at full throttle across the street narrowly missing a dumpster parked next door and another vehicle driving up the street who witnessed the incident. my car proceeded into the neighbor's yard (directly across the street), crashed into the neighbor's car, pushing their car into the front porch of their house. both cars were totaled and the house sustained damage. this incident must be investigated. please contact me for more info and to get access to my car for inspection. people could have been killed!!! *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 110000 miles.

BMW X3 2004 car safety problem was reported on June 05, 2015.BMW X3 2004, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with ENGINE . the engine mount bracket bolts have all sheared off inside the engine block causing a safety concern with the engine not being fully supported. this problem is not an isolated incident, but rather very common on all x3 models. the internet is full of customer complaints with the same problem. i am the second owner of the car and just after purchase i found the problem. it would appear that this failure occurred a long time ago, consistent with the numerous complaints of failure at 60,000 miles. this is a design flaw and bmw should have provided a long term solution. yet to this day, none exists. replacement bolts will still have the same failure mode. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 122000 miles.
