2007 BMW 328i Problems

GPS/DVD Won't Work!

I bought this car used with a factory warranty on it about 5 years ago. The GPS DVD player kept asking for the disk to be inserted when it was. BMW did a software check, download then finally replaced it all under the warranty!! Guess what, it's doing it AGAIN!!! I have a GREAT BMW mechanic but he doesn't do electronics and I just know the dealership is going to charge an arm, leg and first born grandchild. I'm in the Sacramento, CA area,...

2007 BMW 328i Recalls

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag free of charge to resolve the concern.

Airbag System Concern

The front passenger seat contains a mat that determines the presence and size of a seat occupant. This input to the airbag controller helps to determine if and how forcefully the passenger airbag should deploy in the event of a crash. The detection mat can develop cracks and fail. If this were to occur, the airbag would not deploy as expected, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will repair the occupant detection mat to eliminate the possibility it may crack. Additionally certain vehicles will receive and extended warranty on the front passenger seat occupant detection mat.

The Battery Cable Connection at the Fuse Block May Break

The vehicle battery is connected to the fuse box via a heavy duty cable. It has been determined that the cable connection at the fuse box can degrade over time, resulting in increased electrical resistance. This increased resistance can cause the connection point to overheat and break, resulting in a loss of electrical power and causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method to correct this concern.
