 2006 bmw 750li i encounterd a problem that could have resulted in a castrophic incident. i am currently in mississippi training soldiers for an upcoming deployment to afghanistan. please read below and advise of what service and help bmwusa could provide. this is a very serious safety issue and i thank god no one has been seriously injured. 18 jan 2013 car was put in d and jumped out of gear and heard a loud thud as if car was being rear ended. car rolled forward about 5 feet in the street. i sat in the car trying to get it in gear. cars had to maneuver around me as i sat there unable to move the vehicle out of the street. 19 jan 2013 drove to car wash, i pulled up to vacuum and put car in p, turned off ignition. removed key and put on seat. as i opened the door to exit car and was stepping out car, the gear engaged and rolled back. i lost my balance and was able to regain composure and jump back in car and press the break. 20 jan 2013. started car up this morning and everything seemed fine. so i drove to jackson ms to herrin gear bmw. i parked my car got out and walked around. once i got back in my car i started it up, put in d, attempted to drive off and car jumped out of d went to n and i heard a loud thud. after several attempts to put car in gear, i turned off and sat there in disgust. about 20 minuets later i was able to start and drive to a near by gas station to fuel my car. once i paid for gas, again started to put car in d and it would not go in gear. one the car went in gear it was hesitant to move and had a delay before puling off. stopped at a light and as i was slowing down the car jerked as if it was being hit from the rear.. following the light change, i got a hesitant pull off and knocking or the car seemed to skip or as if gear was slipping.
