BMW ODOR PROBLEMS

BMW owners have complained of odor under various conditions.

I have a 2011 BMW 328i and I get this sort of burnt chemical smell through the vents when the heat is on. It doesn’t happen until I have been driving for 10-15 minutes. After that you get the smell on some low level all the time, but it seems to be briefly exacerbated by making a hard turn (i.e. a U-turn). You get a stronger whiff coming out of the turn and then it returns to baseline. I also smell it stronger when setting off in low gear (1st or 2nd) like from a stop sign.   https://community.cartalk.com/t/smell-from-vents-bmw-328i/89768

BMW has recently issued a recall.  Recall Campaign 17V-676 Blower Motor Wiring According to BMW, the problem involves the blower motor which monitors heat and air conditioning.

Chevrolet Silverado Truck Vibration

Lemon law claims lady

2015 Chevrolet Silverado trucks have a vibration problem.  The trucks are 6-cylinders, and some suggest a feature called “active fuel management” caused the engine to run erratically on 4 cylinders to achieve  fuel efficiency.    GM has issued service bulletins on the subject, including “PI1354C: Information on Vibration Analysis and Diagnostic” and PIP5228A.  We have set forth reports filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about the problem.

NHTSA Complaints

1. Vehicle Identification No. (VIN):  3GCUKREH4FG…

THE TRUCKS HAVE A VIBRATION THAT IS FELT IN THE STEERING WHEEL, FLOOR, SEATS, ACCELERATOR AND BRAKE PEDALS ETC. WHILE DRIVING. THE MAJOR CONSENSUS IT THAT THE WORST SPEED IT 76 MPH, YET IT IS FELT TO A LESSER DEGREE AT ANY SPEEDS, WITH SOME BEING WORSE THAN OTHERS. THERE ARE A LARGE NUMBER OF TRUCKS WITH THIS ISSUE, YET GENERAL MOTORS REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. 


2.  Vehicle Identification No. (VIN): 3GCUKTEC2FG…

I PURCHASED A BRAND NEW 2015 SILVERADEO ON 7/24/15 AND AT ABOUT 700 MILES OR SO I NOTICED A BAD VIBRATION AS THE TRUCK WAS IN MOTION, ALL 4 TIRE’S WERE OUT OF BALANCE, WHICH I PAID FOR OUT OF POCKET MYSELF NOT GM…. THIS DIDNOT FIX THE PROBLEM OF THE SEVERE VIBRATION GOING DOWN THE ROAD. I THEN TOOK THE TRUCK TO ANOTHER DEALER FOR THE VIBRATION, THEY TEST DROVE IT AND CONFIRMED THE VIBRATION, DID A ROAD FORCE BALANCE ON ALL 4 WHEELS, THEN REPLACED ALL TIRE’S, THIS ALSO HAS NOT FIXED THE PROBLEM,THE TRUCK IS STILL VIBRATING, THE ENTIRE SEAT JUST SHAKES, I AM PRESENTLY WAITING ON ANOTHER APPOINTMENT WITH DEALER. THE SERVICE MANAGER TOLD ME HIMSELF AFTER REPLACING ALL 4 TIRE’S THAT IT FELT LIKE A BALANCE ISSUE INSIDE THE MOTOR WHICH THERE IS NO FIX, NOW THAT IS CRAZY…I FELL THAT THIS TRUCK SHOULD BE REPLACED OR MY MONEY BACK ENTIRELY.THE TRUCK ONLY HAS A LITTLE OVER 2000 MILES CAUSE IT MAKES ME SICK TO DRIVE IT….
