Again, $30 for small claim filing....and not an arbitration as California Lemon Law provides for.

They will most likely just pay it instead of having a high priced lawyer(s) and representative show up as I cannot imagine the fix was that much in reality.
Gotcha, I just read the first page. Odd that they wouldn’t mention that right away.

Sorry OP, good luck.

I think you're being generous. As of now, it's 1 for 10 across 3 states (Texas, Georgia and California).



My dealership told me this is normal wear and tear with 200 miles on the odometer.

This is so true.

How's BMW expect to retain customers if they can't/won't/don't fulfill their warranty obligations??

I just got a call from BMW NA once again stating they will not reimburse this repair under my warranty. Totally pitiful and I've lost all respect for BMW.

What was the amount of the repair as you never stated it.

Again, spend $30 and file in small claims.

My pedal has a slight stick after it hasn't been touched for a few minutes. I have a friend who is a tech at a local dealer, wonder if I can get him to take a look and possibly have the parts replaced.

I never trust a dealer to change oil. Way to easy to use the wrong oil or simply not even change it.

Dealerships are only good for a remove and replace with an associated check engine light. The techs mostly lack any common sense troubleshooting skills.

I've read other posts about experiencing a random click when depressing the brake pedal while at speed, but couldn't find the solution online anywhere. Brought my car into dealer several times for what seemed like weeks at a time. Scheduled rides with the shop foreman a couple times only to show up and embarrassingly discover my car all taken apart in no condition to test drive (leaky intercooler replacement). These rides never happened. In fact nothing really ever happened except being told "it's normal". But believe me, when your brake pedal randomly sticks a little in the up position every several minutes while driving, that's not normal!

I wound up bringing my car into a highly recommended shop owned by a former BMW Master Technician. He had the car for a few days and said he thought the brake booster or master cylinder was the culprit here and it was not a small job to swap these out. I was at the end of my rope with irritating brake pedal and fruitless dealerships.

Fixed the problem! No more clicky brake pedal at all!

I filed a case with BMW North America for reimbursement. MY CAR IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY with 33K miles. After several phone calls back and forth with a very nice representative I was told any sort of compensation was denied. No specific reason. It's pretty sad really. Such a great car but not such a great company.
Hi, I'm pretty sure that I'm hit with the same issue. Trying to resolve it through a dealer. So far, they "can't replicate it." Can you reply here or PM me who you went to to get the work done? Did they have any trouble replicating? Any advice on how to handle it from the start knowing what you do now? My M4, is at 1200 miles, issue noted since the start, and I'm really not trying to pay out of pocket for what should be a simple warranty fix on a car I rolled out of the showroom in just 3.5 weeks ago, but it's really unacceptable to not be able to smoothly modulate brakes on my 101k (MSRP) car!

Thanks in advance!

Did you ever check with your friend on this?

Hi, I wish I had an answer for you. To this day, my car still has that damn random sticky brake pedal feel.

I spent around $2200 replacing the brake booster and master cylinder. It seemed better for a short period of time (I wasn't driving the car much) but it's back to the same old thing.

Dealerships and BMW NA were absolutely useless. I've never felt this clicking sensation on any other car I've owned and never really got any help after multiple posts to this forum.

IF YOU FIND A SOLUTION, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I did buy a brake pedal assembly on eBay to see how it worked. At some point, I plan on making a small block to prevent the pedal from going all the way up to see if that makes any difference.

The only time it always clicks is in the morning after sitting overnight. Any other time, I have not been able to find anything that can reliably trigger the sticky feeling. Just drive for a few minutes and then softly press the brake pedal.

What have you found?

There's always a problem "replicating" this issue. I old my mechanic, drive the car on the freeway for a few minutes, don't touch the brake pedal and coast, gas it, etc. Then lightly press the brake pedal and you'll have a good chance of it clicking when it first begins movement.

I've literally tried everything to figure out what triggers it.

Maybe it has something to do with the hill assist brake feature. Maybe that's leaking or malfunctioning. I don't know.

IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO FIX THIS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW
