No Reverse Transmission
Issues - BMW
This is the ONLY website
that is solely
dedicated to helping BMW owners voice their opinions and gather data
on the KNOWN reverse transmission issue that prevents the cars from going in
reverse. Oh, the wonderful feeling of no reverse.
Consumers from all over the U.S. are
reporting the failure. Without notice, the reverse gear stops
working in BMWs, many of them the popular 2000 323i luxury sedan.
Please check out this write up on E46. Looks like it
could be very useful.
