BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998 Safety Review #10133488

BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998 car safety problem was reported on Aug 18, 2005.BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998, manufactured by BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE had a problem with STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS . I HEARD A CREAKING FROM THE REAR OF MY CAR, I PUT IT ON JACKS TO CHECK IT OUT. TO MY SURPRISE I FOUND EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE FLOOR PAN MAINLY AROUND THE DIFFERENTIAL MOUNT. THE CAR IS CLAIMED TO BE UNDRIVABLE BY BMW, BUT YET THEY WILL NOT TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MATTER. I SEE IT AS A SAFETY ISSUE AS IF I DID NOT CHECK IT AND CONTINUED TO DRIVE THE CRACKS AND TEARS IN THE BODY METAL THAT EXIST COULD HAVE CONTINUED EVEN FURTHER AND LED TO AN ACCIDENT OR WORSE. I WAS ESTIMATED AT A WHOPPING 5200 DOLLARS WHICH BMW SAID THEY WOULD ONLY PAY 3000 OF. I BELIEVE IT IS A MANUFACTURER DEFECT, SO IT SHOULD BE PAID IN FULLY BY THE COMPANY, BUT THEY WILL NOT STAND UP THE THEIR FAULT. I HAVE AT THIS TIME NO CHOICE BUT TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE IN ITS CURRENT STATE, I AM A COLLEGE STUDENT WHO DOESNT HAVE THE LARGEST INCOME AROUND SO PICKING 2000 OR MORE DOLLARS OUT OF NOWHERE IS QUITE IMPOSSIBLE. AND I STILL HAVE TO GO TO WORK FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE TIME I AM HOME, AND SO WITHOUT A LOANER FROM BMW OR THEM TAKING FULL BLAME AND PAYING IN FULL I AM FORCED TO DRIVE AN UNSAFE CAR, FOR HOWEVER LONG. I HOPE THIS SITUATION CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF AS THERE ARE CASES OF SIMILAR SUBFRAME PROBLEMS POPPING UP ALL OVER FORUMS ONLINE. ENTHUSIASTS OF THE Z3 WILL RECOGNIZE THIS ISSUE IF THEY TEDIOUSLY AND CAREFULLY INSPECT THEIR CARS, HOWEVER THE AVERAGE PERSON WHO JUST BUYS THEIR CAR AND DRIVES IT AROUND HAS ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA OF THE PROBLEM AT HAND AND THE POSSIBLE SAFETY ISSUE THAT IT MAY LEAD UP TO IF NOT TAKEN CARE OF PROPERLY..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 72800 miles.

BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998 car safety problem was reported on Sept 27, 2005.BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998, manufactured by BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE had a problem with SEATS . BOTH THE DRIVER SEAT AND PASSENGER SEAT RAILS ARE DEFECTIVE CAUSING THE SEATS TO MOVE BACK AND FORTH DURING STOPS ESPECIALLY DOWNHILL. THIS CREATES A SAFETY HAZARD FOR THE DRIVER AND AN UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION FOR THE PASSENGER. BMW SAYS THAT IT WILL NOT PROVIDE A REPAIR AT ITS COST OR AT A REDUCED COST BECAUSE IT IS NOT COVERED BY THE EXPIRED WARRANTY. I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A MANUFACTURE DEFECT INHERENT TO THIS VEHICLE. I HAVE FOUND IT ON OTHER Z3S THAT I TEST DROVE. IT SHOULD BE REPAIRED AT COST BY BMW. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 53059 miles.

BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998 car safety problem was reported on May 15, 2010.BMW Z3 ROADSTER 1998, manufactured by BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC had a problem with AIR BAGS . THE AIRBAG FAULT LIGHT CAME ON IN OUR 1998 BMW Z3 (WITH LESS THAN 16,000 MILES ON THE ODOMETER), INDICATING THE AIRBAG (OR AIRBAGS) AND SEAT BELT TENSIONERS WERE NO LONGER FUNCTIONING. THE DEALER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE SAID THIS WAS "A COMMON PROBLEM" WITH THIS MODEL AND TOLD US EXACTLY WHAT MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM PRIOR TO ANY DIAGNOSTICS┐THAT THERE WAS A FAULT IN THE SEATBELT LATCH AND WIRING THAT CAUSED ┐HIGH RESISTANCE┐. THE COST OF REPAIRS WAS $825. A GOOGLE SEARCH SHOWS THIS SAME PROBLEM IS ESSENTIALLY UBIQUITOUS. I SEARCHED FOR ┐BMW Z3 AIRBAG LIGHT ON┐, AND I GOT NEARLY 40,000 HITS. LOOKING RANDOMLY AT SOME OF THESE HITS, I FIND EACH CONTAINS MULTIPLE ACTUAL INSTANCES OF THIS PROBLEM OCCURRING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE FIRST RESULT RETURNED (HTTP://WWW.AUTOMOTIVEFORUMS.COM/T145936-Z3_AIRBAG_SENSORS.HTML) INDICATED AT LEAST 6 VEHICLES WITH THIS EXACT SAME PROBLEM. THUS, I WOULD ESTIMATE FROM THE GOOGLE SEARCH THAT THIS PROBLEM HAS AFFECTED 100,000+ VEHICLES JUST COUNTING THOSE POSTED ON THE INTERNET┐PLUS ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE NOT POSTED ON THE INTERNET. THE BMW Z3 WAS A LOW VOLUME VEHICLE, SO IT WOULD APPEAR THIS SIGNIFICANT SAFETY DEFECT AFFECTS A VERY LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THESE VEHICLES. ASIDE FROM THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF OWNERS REPAIRING THIS VERY DANGEROUS DEFECT, I SUSPECT MANY OWNERS SIMPLY CHOOSE NOT TO HAVE THE POTENTIALLY DEADLY SAFETY DEFECT REPAIRED DUE TO THE COST OF THE REPAIRS. BMW SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO CORRECT THEIR DESIGN DEFECT AND REIMBURSE OWNERS WHO HAVE INCURRED PERHAPS $100,000,000 IN REPAIRS FOR THIS SEVERE AND DEADLY DEFECT. *TR.Mileage was 15725 miles.

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IT HAS HAPPENED, ALSO AT 93,500 MILES, JUST 8 MONTHS LATER. THE CLUTCH IS STILL ORIGINAL AND THE CAR HAS NEVER BEEN ABUSED, OR RACED. I ALWAYS BABY THE CAR BECAUSE GAS IS SO EXPENSIVE, AND THIS SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH ALOT OF OTHER Z3'S THAT I HAVE SEEN ONLINE. THIS IS CLEARLY A MANUFACTURING FLAW. BMW CLAIMS THE CAR MUST HAVE HAD SOME REAR END IMPACT, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS CLEARLY NOT THE CASE. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM REPLACE THIS PART WITH THICKER, OR STRONGER METAL AS IT CAN BE A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM IF THE DIFFERENTIAL FALLS OUT AT HIGH SPEEDS. *TR.Mileage was 86902 miles.
