Norbert Reithofer, BMW AG CEO

Last Update: 01 October 2013

We have reached 4000 signatures... We already sent this petition to Norbert Reithofer, CEO of BMW Group, but the BMW Group continues to treat customers like idiots.

We will never stop and maybe one day, BMW is forced to assume the error.

As BMW owners, when we buy BMWs, we do it with high expectations. We pay a premium for the engineering and attention to detail.

Yet it comes as a surprise that the car giant BMW could get an engine design wrong? The BMW diesel engines N47 produced between 2007 and 2011 all have a particular design problem with the timing chains, they are very weak and stretch over time causing them to then snap.

The BMW is ignoring the problem and offers different solutions to different customers. To most of the clients offers expensive solutions like substitution of the engine and for a few clients they are offering solutions at attractive prices.

Always saying that the problem is residual, ignoring the thousands of vehicles across the world and especially in Europe are giving the same problem.
