NHTSA Complaints for the 2022 BMW 330i

Electrical System Problems

When it comes to having a high-end electrical system, everyone expects that a BMW model would have it in the bag. Yet, it doesn’t.

One Edmunds review says, “lane assist is too aggressive.”

While there aren’t any manufacturer communications about the problem yet, it’s expected that BMW will eventually realize some information. For now, the automaker is dragging its feet, trying to convince customers that there’s nothing wrong with this luxury sedan. However, the average driver isn’t blind to what’s obvious. So far, there’s no way this car was “born to be driven” unless the operator wants to fight the safety systems.

Problems with the Powertrain

A smooth ride is something that’s expected with the new BMW model, yet customers can’t stress enough how unenjoyable it actually is.

One NHTSA complaint states, “car had 1,645 miles rear left axle broke. Car would not move. Had this occurred on a highway I easily could have been rear ended. Part must have been defective, Dealer replaced the part left rear CV joint but not the right, nor did the dealer confirm both rear axles were not from the same batch. The failure was catastrophic and sudden with no warnings.”

There’s a recall surrounding this defective powertrain as well. NHTSA Campaign Number 22V07000 shows that there are parts within the transmission that weren’t assembled correctly. This problem leads to a leak, which can increase the chance of an accident or rollaway situations. By now, people are probably hoping that the 2022 BMW 330i will just roll away and move on. It would save a lot of trouble.

Suspension Problems

The ride inside any luxury car should be smooth and enjoyable, but that’s not what people find in the BMW 330i.

Another review on Edmunds says, “very hard suspension where you can feel every bump.”

Again, BMW has remained quiet on the situation. It’s like a smoke and mirrors illusion, trying to get consumers to focus on other parts of the vehicle except what truly needs attention. This BMW might be labeled one of the largest lemons to go down in history, which is a disappointment to anyone that shelled out a lot of money for this vehicle.
