128CabOwner Never had a car that's so much fun! August 10, 2014 128I Cabriolet
Overall Score
The amazing thing about this car is the size of the trunk - for a convertible. Even with the top down there is room for two suitcases, a cooler, and several smaller bags. We've taken it for holidays all over the Atlantic provinces and as far South as Virginia on a couple of occasions. The rear seat is surprisingly roomy, but is low and wouldn't be very suitable for adults on long trips. However, for our granddaughters in their booster seats, riding in the back is a blast. The engine is plenty gutsy, but this is not a fuel-efficient compact car by any means. It averages around 8.5 to 9 L/100 km urban and highway driving. But that's how it's advertised. That's the price you pay for the in-line 6 with the distinctive snarly exhaust note. (End of an era? The new BMW dual turbo 4's sound like giant sewing machines.) Even though this was BMW's smallest North American export at the time it was introduced, you can get all the comforts and features imaginable. The Harmon Kardon sound system is fantastic, and the "driver's memory" function, which automatically adjusts the position of the seat, side mirrors and instrumentation (even tuning in to your favourite radio station) is indispensable for us aging baby boomers who switch drivers frequently.

On certain vehicles equipped with the N52 6-cylinder engine, an electrical short could occur in the PCV valve heater due to manufacturing irregularities. If this occurs, the surrounding plastics could overheat, melt and potentially cause a fire, which could increase the risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace the PCV valve heater.

On certain vehicles, the rivet connections for the constant velocity (CV) joint of the rear driveshaft may have insufficient durability. Over time, this could cause the CV joint to break, resulting in a loss of propulsion which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the CV joint. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2017-049

On certain vehicles, the driver frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the front driver air bag inflator or air bag module, depending on the vehicle model.

On certain vehicles, housing bolts for the variable camshaft timing system could break, allowing camshaft timing to deviate. If this occurs, the engine would revert to "limp home mode", limiting available engine power. In rare instances the engine could stall, increasing the risk of a collision causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace housing bolts that break and perform associated repairs for 10 years/unlimited mileage from the vehicle's in-service date. Note: This applies only to vehicles not covered by recall 2014-127.

On certain vehicles, the positive battery cable connection to the fuse box could fail while the vehicle is being driven. This could interrupt the vehicle’s electrical system, resulting in engine stalling, loss of vehicle propulsion and a loss of function of various vehicle systems, such as lights. A loss of vehicle propulsion and electrical vehicle systems, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the driver’s reactions, could increase the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector with an updated version.

On certain vehicles, the sound insulation in the "B" pillar (around the seatbelt pre-tensioner) may ignite during a crash severe enough to deploy the pre-tensioner. This could result in additional property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the front upper seatbelt and repair the "B" pillar sound insulation on both driver and passenger sides.
