2022 BMW 328i

Asked by Jan 22, 2017 at 08:02 AM about the 2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive Sedan AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, we just purchased a 2011 BMW yesterday
and not even 12 hours after the purchase the
coolant warning sign came on.  After about 5 mile
after the light came on the car started to shut
down.  Could this be a major mechanical problem
we need to worry about?  Fortunately we have 60
day warranty so we are going to get the car back to
the dealership to take a look. I hope this is not
lemon car.

Yea, good thing you have a warranty. This could be a major problem, or it can be a easy fix. It just needs to be checked out.

A "Lemon" is a NEW car that has problems- any used car might have mechanical problems- especially a car that has been driven hard and not maintained- especially a BMW- well, at least they are better than Audis

Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz are on my do not buy list when used. They sometimes can eat a hole in your wallet with all the maintenance and repair required to keep them going. NEVER BUY A USED ONE WITHOUT WARRANTY!!!

BMWs do not like to be run hot! The cooling systems on these cars are very fussy! It could be anything from the cooling system needing to be bled to a cracked head. You're best bet is to either let your local BMW dealer look at it or an independent shop that specializes in imports. Anyone else and you're taking a big chance! My Nephew learned that lesson the hard way with his '98 528i! HTH. -Jim
