Complaint / review text:
Suddenly the reverse gear went out on the transmission and it would pull out in any gear including neutral. I had the transmission rebuilt at which time the mechanic said "all of the gears were melted together" and this is something he has seen numerous times, more than one a week with various models of BMW. One week later, the rebuilt transmission did exactly the same thing. The mechanic researched and found a new way to "vent" the transmission so it will keep it from getting too hot and overheating but that is a lot of money later! Transmission failed twice in two weeks!
