BMW / rear coil spring failure
I can't believe that the rear coil springs of the X3 are subject to premature failure. My local mechanic showed me the bottom of a broken spring from a customer with a 2004 X3 with only 83, 000 miles. On a visit to the local BMW dealer, a service rep when asked said something like "sure does happen with BMWs and it's due to the road salt in the northeast". The spring replacement is not covered by warranty. I am told that BMW wanted about $1000 to replace the defective springs on the car. I have an 1987 El Camino that has been a daily driver since new. It has coil springs and about 265, 000 miles and has the original rear coil springs. My '04 X3 has about 62, 000 miles. Waiting for the shoe to drop.
BMW quality? Not!
