Complaint / review text:
I own a 2000 BMW 323i. Yesterday, without warning, the reverse gear stopped working. The forward one works fine, but the reverse is like being in neutral gear. Two mechanics immediately upon describing the problem confirmed that this was a very common issue and that thus far BMW has refused to fix this problem although they are aware of it. The GM transmission that is in this car has also been used in a Cadillac model, and this company issued a recall on the exact same transmission. Please help as this is a very much known and widespread problem! The quotes to repair this are between $5,000-$8,000.
