Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI have been alerted by the dealer (bmw) that the timing chain on the vehicle is coming loose. The vehicle has less than 100,000 miles, is six (6) years old and averages >14,000 miles per year. It has had no other maintenance issues except a thermostat, which was replaced twice at cost to the manufacturer. I was informed that bmw provided a warranty of 7-years/70,000 miles on the timing chain, however the car in question has surpassed the mileage constraints. I went online to research and have noticed hundreds of complaints by other bmw owners that the n20 engine installed in a few different models are having the same issue---meaning that bmw is aware of this defect, but is not informing consumers, and instead, passing along the cost and potential harm.
