Three recalls on the M340i!

Brought my car in for rattle in speaker, low oil, unresponsive selector dial on steering wheel, Bluetooth issues, and the one recall I was aware of. Found out there were two more recalls I wasn't notified about. One for software related issues and the other is unclear.

This is my first time getting a first year car and I'm not sure I'll ever do it again...

You may have required service items beyond the recall, but there is only a recall for the back up camera at this time.

Mine is the first year for the B58, so far no major issues. These cars are actually more reliable than the previous version. Also, no recalls.

Mine is at the dealer for the cross traffic alert not working. We will see what recalls they perform on the car.

Can you provide more specifics on this? I'm not sure that my cross traffic alert has actually ever even gone off, though there is no formal recall issued for it.

Was specifically told by service department there were a total of three but admittedly I do not know the specifics

Update: one of the additional recalls is for the "Program Control Unit" whatever that is

Appears to be a silent recall as I do not see this information on the recall portals

Just because there is a recall doesn't mean your vehicle has "issues". Most BMW recalls nowadays are programming recalls anyway. For example updated DME software or Rear View Camera programming recall.

I recommend you don't take the recalls too seriously and just keep driving your car normally and service it when it needs servicing. There are no major recalls that have to do with reliability or major engine/vehicle issues so there is no need to upset about it.

More upset with the other issues I brought it in for than the recalls. Bad oil sensor, unresponsive selector, rattling speaker, I drive issues, etc. Seems like bad quality control, but it is what it is. Also being without my car for a week driving a base x3 is no fun.

You bought a 1st production year car...... all of that stuff is pretty common and BMW will fix it. Consider yourself lucky that you actually have a BMW loaner. They could of just rent you a Chevy something and call it a day.

When it comes to recalls and repairs of this sort BMW actually is pretty good.

I had one of the 1st E92 335s in 2006 and that car had too had oil sensor, i-drive, high pressure fuel pump & etc etc issues which were all addressed by the dealership. By 2008 MY most of those issues were addressed.

I just made an appointment for my M340 and one of the items was:

BMW FACTORY RECALL CAMPAIGN - B310719 Service Action: Front Axle Support B31 07 19

Did a quick search, but didn't find any more information about this one.
