Model News

Since the 1-series was introduced in the United States in 2008, BMW's entry-level model is mostly unchanged for 2010. It is still available in three trims, including the 128i, which features a 230-horsepower 3.0L inline-6, and a 135i, which makes use of a 300-horsepower 3.0L inline-6. BMW's active steering is no longer available on the 128i and the optional navigation system now utilizes the automaker's iDrive control system. For 2010, HD Radio has been added as standard equipment.


Value Writeup

Since 1975, the 3-Series had been BMW's entry-level car, but when BMW subsidiary MINI made such a big seller out of the MINI Cooper, the 1-Series was introduced to North America in 2008 to slot nicely just above it. It's a stylish coupe with an iconic style that competes directly with the Audi A3 and Volvo C30.

The 1-Series gives first-time buyers easy access to a great tradition, and is the only vehicle in its class featuring rear wheel drive, a 50/50 weight balance, a longitudinally-mounted engine and an advanced aluminum multilink suspension. MSRP starts at $29,000. Mileage is estimated at 18 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.


Model Highlights

The 2010 BMW 1-Series comes in two trims, the base 128i and the 135i, and both are available as either a hardtop coupe or a convertible. The 128i is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.0L inline-6 DOHC engine making 230 hp at 6500 rpm and 200 pound-feet of torque at 2750 rpm. The 135i utilizes a twin-turbocharged version of the same 3.0L inline-6 and makes 300 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 300 pound-feet of torque at 1400-5000 rpm.

Both engines feature BMW's advanced electronic throttle control and Double-VANOS variable valve timing. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on each trim, while a 6-speed Steptronic automatic with paddle shifters is available as an option. Both are rear wheel drive only. Both the 128i and 135i are also offered as a convertible with a fully automatic soft top with heated rear glass and integrated defroster.

Standard safety features on all 1-Series cars include run-flat tires with a tire pressure monitor, stability control, traction control, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with dynamic brake control and brake drying, adaptive brake lights, dual-stage front air bags, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and programmable daytime running lights.

The 128i comes loaded with standard exterior features, including chromed exhaust tips, 17-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, dual power heated mirrors and halogen fog lamps. Inside, 8-way adjustable front seats with 2-way headrests are standard, as are power windows and locks, leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped tilt/telescopic steering wheel with dynamic cruise and audio controls and split fold-down rear seats. All 128i coupes come with a power moonroof, automatic climate control with individual user recall settings and a 10-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input jack.

The 135i adds 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, xenon adaptive headlights with auto leveling, a rear spoiler and an aerodynamic kit.

Options and packages available include a Sport Package, which adds performance wheels, sport suspension and sport seats. The Premium Package includes auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, power front seats with driver memory, wood and aluminum interior trims, a universal garage door opener and a choice of four interior leathers. Stand-alone options, such as heated front seats, navigation with iDrive, premium sound and satellite radio systems and rear park distance control are available. A Cold Weather Package adds a ski bag and heated front seats. On the 135i, the Sport Package includes an 'M' steering wheel.

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM:FAN

Potential Number of Units Affected
585

Summary
Valeo is recalling certain engine cooling fans, part numbers 696121, 696273, and 696275, used as service replacement parts for model year 2008-2011 BMW 1-Series, 2006-2011 BMW 3-Series, 2000-2009 BMW 5-Series, 2004-2005 BMW 6-Series, and 2006-2007 BMW 7-Series vehicles. A metal-oxide semiconductor may overheat due to insufficient screwing of the semiconductor on the aluminum heat sink. This primary failure could cause adjacent components on the fan assembly motor circuit board to overheat and short.

Consequence
This condition could cause the fan motor to become inoperative, or cause the motor circuit board in the assembly to overheat, potentially leading to a fire in the engine compartment.

Valeo will notify owners and replace the fans free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2012. This recall is being conducted by Valeo, not by BMW. For further information, owners may contact Valeo at 1-888-718-2536.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 128i Coupe, 128i Convertible, 328i Sedan, 328i xDrive Sedan, 328i Coupe, 328i Convertible, 328i Sports Wagon and Z4 sDrive 30i, 2011-2012 135i Coupe, 135i Convertible, 335i Sedan, X5 xDrive 35i, and X6 xDrive 35i, 2011 335i xDrive Sedan, 335i Coupe, 335i Convertible, 528i Sedan, 535i Sedan, 535i xDrive Sedan, X3 xDrive 28i, and X3 xDrive 35i, 2010 X3 xDrive 30i, and X5 xDrive 30i, 2012 640i Coupe, and 640i Convertible and 2010-2012 535i Gran Turismo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the bolts that secure the housing for the variable camshaft timing adjustment (VANOS) unit can loosen over time and may possibly break.

Consequence
If the bolts loosen or break the engine may have reduced power or stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the four VANOS housing bolts for both VANOS units (intake and exhaust), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2014. In addition, owners of approximately 170,172 model year 2010-2012 BMW vehicles equipped with inline 6 cylinder engines not covered by this recall, will receive an extended warranty to address this condition. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.

Summary
BMW is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 1-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured December 2007 through July 2011; and 2007-2011 3-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured March 2007 through July 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sedans manufactured March 2007 through October 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sports wagons manufactured March 2007 through June 2011; and 2009-2011 Z4 vehicles manufactured March 2009 through June 2011. The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. Over time, the high current flow and heat from electrical resistance may lead to a breakage of the connection, and a loss of electrical power to the vehicle.

Consequence
If there is a loss of electrical power to the vehicle, the vehicle may unexpectedly stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method, free of charge. The recall began on March 13, 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
