Module Problems at 51000 miles--BEWARE!

by DisappointedOwner from Ft Worth, TX | August 29, 2019

Disappointed with BMW. I ordered new (to my specs) a 2016 428i xdrive convertible, loved the vehicle until it became unreliable at 4 yrs 20 days (51000 miles). Driving on highway at 70+ mph and IDrive system shuts down (shuts down ac/power features)--Frontal collision warning/Chassis Stabilization malfunction/Cruise control malfunction ... to name a few of the warnings that displayed after it kicked back on (about 5 seconds later). System continued to intermittently drop out/kick back on. After turning vehicle off/on, the systems check indicated "all okay." Next day - same problems and warnings but in addition the dashboard now goes black/no power--no functions. (Kicks back on within 1 min--thank goodness I was stopped at a stoplight). According to BMW authorized service dept, the vehicle is "Out of warranty"--my problem--my expense. Shame on BMW for a defective module and not retaining a former satisfied customer. The vehicle's features were nice but BMW is not a reliable company. Loved the convertible and features but dislike the customer service and dismissive attitude of BMW.

A great step up from a Mustang GT!

Traded a Mustang GT for the BMW 428i. The 2.0 turbo has a lot of get up and go with twice mpg. What a comfortable car.

2016 BMW 428 Overview


Back with more standard features and the same flawless driving dynamics is the 2016 BMW 428.

The 428 is part of the 4-Series, which broke off from the 3-Series a few years ago and is home to BMW’s two-door compart sports car offerings. Of course there are now four-door versions of the 428 available called the 428 Gran Coupe, which is covered separately on this website. For 2016, the 428 adds more standard features from what was previously offered as the “Sport Line” package, including 18-inch wheels, an alarm system, high-gloss exterior trim elements, sport seats, and a sport leather steering wheel.

There are two available body styles: coupe and convertible. Styling is classic BMW, with the kidney grille leading the way up front and nicely sculpted body details running up and down the sides of the 428. Power folding, heated side mirrors, xenon headlights with auto-leveling and Corona rings, and fog lights are standard.

What’s under the hood will be familiar; BMW uses this engine up and down much of its lineup. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder makes 240-hp and 255 pounds-feet of torque, and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual is also offered as a no cost option, for those who prefer to row their own gears.

Inside, the interior mixes luxury materials and a sporty design. Standard features include power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, iDrive infotainment, and push button start. Also available as a standalone option or part of an options package are heated front seats, heated steering wheel, navigation, a head-up display, and a Harman Kardon premium stereo.

Standard safety features include front, side-impact, and front knee airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, and BMW Assist emergency communications with a 10-year subscription. Coupe models also get side curtain airbags. The 2016 428 also has plenty of available safety technology and driver aids, like side, top-view, and rearview cameras, lane departure warnings, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control.
