It Still Burns

13 12 2010

It still burns. I still get a twinge when I see a black on black 325i like the one I used to own. I think about how we take things for granted. I didn’t really appreciate my car until it was gone.

Now, eight months later, my situation is the office joke. “Can you believe her car blew up in the parking lot?” Or my personal favorite, “her car went up in a blaze of glory!!”

I am disappointed. I feel like BMW should have done more to help me. As one of their consumers, they should have replaced my car because all the reports clearly proved that the fire was a manufacturer defect.

As much as I might admire the style of a shiny 5 series or 7 series, the first thing that comes to mind is that car is a death trap. I am not the first or the last to go through this situation.
