Bimmer owners might want to check this out. BBC reports of a man crashing at 135 miles per hour, after his BMW 318’s accelerator got stuck! What’s worse was the car’s brakes gave out, and the driver had to wade through 60 miles of traffic before crashing!
The driver survived, quite miraculously. But I guess the car didn’t share the same fortune (tarnished reputation and all!).
AS for BMW:
BMW’s UK media relations manager, Duncan Forrester, said: “I would certainly like to reassure anybody driving any BMW that we see this as really nothing more than a freak accident.
Freak accident, my foot! I’d like to have a replacement, please.
