2014 335, four check engine lights so far, only 7k miles. Each CEL is caused by an issue that is apparently known by BMW. when driving at highway speeds, putting the car into neutral (for example when getting off the highway) will cause a CEL. Anybody else have this issue? Considering the lemon law on this one, dealer said BMW is working on a fix, but no guarantees on the time frame.

2014 f30 335i here. Zero issues, just changed the oil myself at 1,200 miles, to break it in. My car hasn't used any oil at all. Very inpress with this car. Knock on wood, hope it keeps it this way.

Have a 2014 sport 328i, 6800 miles. Here's my list so far, assume it'll only grow from here:

1. Main horn blew out
2. Needed to replace all fuel injectors at 4,000 miles
3. Tire pressure monitoring system needs to be replaced, does not reset no matter how much air I put in. No tires have gashes either.

Overall, I've been less than impressed with this car. It's been in the shop for 20 days total thus far and I've had it since July. If these problems persist I'll either opt for another brand next time, maybe an M BMW but I'm not sure. No surprise to me that the 3 series has been booted off the 10 best list.

Also: engine sounds like an f'ing diesel with all the clinging and clanging. Thought it was an issue with my engine but dealer said nothing's wrong and it's normal. Sounds awful.

Knock on wood. Solid 25,000 miles so far. 6MT 2013 335i M sport.


Just had the "faulty cooling fan" replaced a few days ago, due to intermittent loss of power. Also, my seat warmer sensor is going bad, so they will be ordering me a whole new seat! I guess they can't replace just the sensor. I'm not complaining. New driver bucket seat on the way!


Aside from that it's been very reliable so far.

Have both cars(335i and 435i) without a single issue including MPPk on both of them. Count our blessings considering how complex these vehicles are.

N55 Engine locked after 2,500 miles for no obvious reason. 3 of the 4 TPMS malfunctioning at delivery and 2,500-3,000 rpm vibration due to A/C hose resonance fixed according to TSB. Hopefully nothing more... Not so warm and fuzzy about BMW anymore

Less than 100 miles and already the damn thing is rattling. Really getting to the point where BMWs build quality is worse than domestics, or even Koreans. 6 years before my E39 rattled. 6 minutes with the F34.

Im having problems with the passenger seat of my car... The button to move the seat forward/backward is not working, probably just a little and easy problem to fix. It's a BMW, electric problems are part of it.

Well....issue #2 just popped up for me within 6mon and 4800 miles of ownership. First was the HPFP needing to be replaced which left me stranded the first time.

This time, I turn the car on in the morning and starts rough and is idling really choppy. Message on the IDrive says drivetrain malfunction blah blah blah... had to drive it with half the power to the dealer. Dealer calls and says some valve/throttle body issue? Ill know more next week.

Oh and on a separate note, I was driving about 2 wks ago and the IDrive just decided to shut off on me for no reason at all and took like 5min to reset itself. Makes no sense.

WTF??????

Brand new car having these issues.

One more thing goes wrong and ill be pushing to lemon this car.

Guys, Im having a little issue.


My car is almost new (4000km) and yesterday in the highway I noticed a strange low sound when driving around 110, 120 km/h ... It seems like a wind noise or something, a constant hum, something like a gearbox that doesn't change a gear in high revs ... Does someone already had this problem ?

Thanks !

Took delivery of my 435 w/MPPK 4/11/14. The HPFP was replaced at 6000 miles and my leather started peeling at 8000 miles. My center console and driver's door panel leather have already been replaced under warranty, but I'm still waiting on my driver's seat and headrest to be replaced since they look like they're 10 years old already. My 2011 E92 coral red leather NEVER gave me issues, even after 36,000 miles of use

No rattles to speak of thank God. I will say I'm fairly disappointed with the quality so far, maybe I'm just being too picky. But this car just doesn't keep a smile on my face like my E92 did. I'm hoping some mods will change that.

I got 20K miles, I did euro delivery in Munich

At 10K miles I got the limp mode, turn off the car then turn it on and the issue was gone.

Fuel tank cover is not locking, need to bring to the dealership to get it fixed

Rattling in the left air vent (driver side) and at the column pilar in the passenger side... When you complain about rattle at the dealership they always comes back with the same answer "no noise found" i will get them fixed myself

Other than that the car is wonderful! Could not be happy with my decision :-)

Nothing major and I love my car but I use 4 radio preset buttons and I'm super gentle but the buttons have a crack under the surface running through them. I can't feel them but I can see it when they're lit. Wtf kind of plastic quality is that? Also the left speaker front near the windshield has "caved" a bit. I know I didn't do that.

one problem occurred sometimes last weekend, I put my car in reverse after stopping by at the gas station then shortly when the gear shifted in reverse i felt a minor rocking coming from the transmission for about 1~3 seconds then stops. I did some research online and it says that it is possibly the transmission mount isn't tight or something, I'm going to bring the car back soon but still too lazy to put back the stock parts o.O

328D X 2014, been to the dealer 2 times so far for a rattle coming from the rear suspension, a clunking noise on rebound after hitting potholes or rough surfaces, they changed the rear shocks on second visit they tighten some screw.
Noise is worst when is is very cold (-15 deg cel or less)
Still not fixed...
