BMW and Dealer Offered No Assistance
My 2009 R1200RT is just out of warranty with 9,000 on the odometer. The ABS module just failed. While I have purchased three new BMWs from BMW of Ft. Myers, they told me to go to hell. So did BMW. As riders we need to be very careful about buying these bikes with all of their new toys, then having them fail prematurely. We need to also be wary of dealers who don't care once they sell the bike. This is a safety issue, since how do I know that the entire braking system won't fail too? The ABS module on BMW motorcycles has a bad track record and many owners are getting hit with $1,500 to $2,000 bills for a repair that should never happen in such a short time. It certainly doesn't happen on their cars. I know that BMW of Ft. Myers has developed a horrible service reputation, but this, being a safety situation, cannot be permitted without legal intervention.
This is a class action issue
The ABS modular on BMW motorcycles is a weak part of the motorcycle that will fail at anytime. This causes a serious safety issue. If your bike is even a week out of warranty, they tell you to go to hell. BMW has gone out of their way to prevent us from easily having these modules rebuilt. If this was happening on one of their cars, it would necessitate a recall. As BMW riders we are just too use to putting up with their crap. It may have been fine when we could repair our bikes ourselves. I am considering a class action suit against BMW because of their unwillingness to solve a safety defect on their motorcycles.
