Purchased New 2012 X 5 In August 2011. In July 2014 Car Vibrated On Turns In Steering Column And Thought Is Was The New Tires, They Said It Was The Circumference On One Of The Tires, Installed New Set. Still The Vibration Occurred….turns Out Is Transfer Case And $6200.00. They Covered All But 1300.00 Of Mine At The Dealer Level. Friend Bought Same Vehicle In October 2011 Same Dealer And I Explained Problem To Her And She Had The Same Symptoms And Almost Identical Mileage. Her Transfer Case Also Bad The Same Month Mine Was. She Had To Fight With bmw Because She Had Over 75,000. At First Her Assistance On The Replacement Was Denied, Then After Calls She Actually Had All But 500.00ish Paid. Dealer Said They Rarely Had To Replace A Transfer Case And It Was A Fluke- We Didn’t Think So. Fast Forward, Both Cars Now 10,000 Miles Later Each ( November 2014)”smoke” Upon Starting If They Sit For A Few Days (the “steam” Cloud Is Huge). We Both Had To Add Oil Which They Say Is Normal After An Oil Change Less Than 7000 Miles Ago. Dealer Says It Is Normal On The Oil Addition And Normal Smoke- Condensation- This Time We Took Them In The Same Day And Had Them Sit Over The Weekend. People Jump Back From Mine Because They Are Scared! Now A Week Later, Both Smell Of Antifreeze When Left Running A Few Minutes Parked With The Heat On. Too Many Coincidences. This Is My Third bmw- But First Time With Problems. Just Read Online About Other Transfer Case Issues With That Model Year. We Believe As These Models Age, And People Have More Miles ( We Are Both Realtors So We Have Very High Mileage) This Transfer Case Will Fail. I Believe It Is A Faulty Part And Needs To Be Recalled. At The Rate We Drive We Will Need Another Transfer Case In 2 Yrs. *tr

The Universal Joint On The Front Drive Shaft Sheered In Half While Driving My Kids To School This Morning. There Was No Warning Signs Or Noticeable Vibrations Before. Towed Vehicle To Shop & Discovered The Problem. A Quick Google Search Revealed The Following: bmw Issued A Service Bulletin To “inspect” The Drive Shaft Back In March Of 2015 Nhtsa Id Number: 10056722 / bmw Sib-26-01-14 And In August Of 2015 They Issued A Voluntary Warranty Extension, bmw Sib-01-15-15. I Will Send Vehicle To The Local bmw Dealership And Ask For The Repair To Happen Under This Warranty Extension……updated 06/23/16 * Bf

Driveshaft Failure. I Was Driving Down The Interstate On A Straight And Level Section Of The Road. I Heard A Loud Humming From The Engine Area So I Slowed Down And Then I Heard A Loud Pop And Metal Grinding And Hitting Under The Car. My Vehicle Is Out Of Warranty, So I Had It Towed To My Independent Mechanic That Specializes In European Vehicles. They Said The Driveshaft “fell Apart” And As I Was Slowing Down It Was Still Spinning And Banged Around Causing Damage To My Exhaust System And Oil Pan. I Researched And Found That 2011 Vehicles Had Been Recalled For A Defect That Could Cause The Driveshaft To Fail, So I Called bmw And They Told Me That Since My Vehicle Was Not Listed On The Recall That There Was Nothing They Could Do. I Tried Calling Them Again In Regards To The Prior Year’s Recall And Asked If It May Include 2012 Model Vehicles At A Later Date And They Could Not Give Me An Answer. It Seems Strange That A Vehicle Manufactured 4 Months After A Recall Has The Same Issue But Somehow It Is Not Covered. I Called My Local bmw Service Center And They Told Me That They Added A 10 Year Warranty Onto The Driveshaft Parts, But I Must Not Have Been Notified. So If I Would Have Taken It To Them, They Would Have Fixed It For Free, But Since I Didn’t, They Couldn’t Do Anything For Me. The Nhtsa Campaign # For The 2011 X5 Is: 16v311000. *tr

My Wife Was Driving My Vehicle To Get Car Wash. All Of A Sudden She Lost power Steering And The Car Battery Warning Came On. The Idler Pulley Bolt Snapped. Luckily My Wife Did Not Crash. She Was Driving 60mph And Lost power Steering. She Is Pregnant And Had 2 Kids In Car. Now I’ve Replaced This Bolt Again. I Put Purchased A New Idler Pulley Bolt With Loc Tite. I Replaced It And Met Every Specification That Nhtsa Required. Basically It Only Require More Torque And Loc Tite. This Time It Snapped In My Drive Way Thank Goodness. This Is A Serious Traffic Safety Situation, I’ve Read Multiple Forums Where People Have Had Work Done At Dealership And The Bolt Is Snapping 3 Days Later. Obviously bmw Did Not Fix The Problem.

Transfer Case Problem. Bought The Car New, After The 2nd Year Felt Vibration /shudders When Making Turns From A Stop Or Low Speed. Dealer Replaced Front Brake Rotors, Changed Front Wheels. Still Same Issue End Up Changing 4 New Tyres After A Year. Up Until 2016 Changed Again Front And Rear Brake Whole Systems, Front Drive Shaft Replaced Due To Safety Recall Last July But Still The Vibration/shudders Remains. Service Advisor Told Me It Could Be The Transfer Case As It Is Most Issues They Received. Quoted Me For $2650. Told Him That My Extended Warranty Expired 2016. The Fact That The Same Exact Problem Was Already Reported To Them Early On And Now I’ve Been Asked To Pay For That Long Outstanding Problem. Very Disappointed. Went To Two Different Dealer; Tenafly Under Penske Group Where I Bought The Car Even Quoted Me For $8000; Reached Out To bmw Direct Us Recall Service And Willing To Pay Half So It’ll End Up Still For $4000. bmw Hackensack Under Park Ave Group Quoted Me For $2650 Parts And Labor Excluding Tax. Really Very Disappointed After Spending/investing A Lot Of Money To The Car. Hope bmw Issue A Safety Recall Especially I’ve Been Seeing A Lot And Same Problems With The Transfer Case In X5. Just Look Online And You’ll See A Many Complaints. I’m Sure bmw Sees How Many Transfer Cases They Been Replacing Under The Warranty Or They Probably Won’t Even Bother Their Overhead Expense Especially It’s Being Paid Off Buy Other Consumer/owner Who Ends Up Paying The Cost Out Of Warranty, Considering They Don’t Have A Fix Or Standard Prices. Pretty Sure If I Go To Other Dealer, They’ll Quote Me Differently.

The Vehicle Is An X5 Diesel. Since Purchasing The Vehicle New Both Nox Sensors (before And After Catalytic) Have Failed. I Searched The Internet And Found Others Who Have Had Multiple Nox Sensor Failures On Other bmw Diesel Models. The Second, Most Recent, Nox Failure Happened To Be Immediately After The Car Was Serviced (oil, Def Fluid, Vehicle Check) Was Performed. All Service Since New Was Performed By The bmw Dealership. bmw Said The Nox Failure Was Not As A Result Of The Service. Replacement Of The Nox Sensor Was $1,100. I Can Provide All Service Records From bmw If They Are Needed. Thank You For Your Assistance.

However, All Parts Of Recall Have Been Replaced On Vehicle And Now Having To Drive A Vehicle That Has Not Been Fixed, That I Am Afraid To Drive In Traffic And Do Not Trust To Have Enough Power To Merge Onto Interstate. bmw Is Simply Throwing Parts At A Serious Problem That Has The Potential To Harm Thousands Of People. *tr

In 2012 A Recall Was Issued For This Car And The Work Was Performed At The Dealer. On 12/16/2016 The Steering Failed Wile The Car Was In Operation. It Was Returned To The Dealership For Repair On The Same Part As Before. My Investigation Showed There Were More Than One Steering Failure In That Time Period Concerning The Same Model, Engine And Everything But A 2011 Model. I Paid Out Of Pocket To Have The Repairs Completed Because I Need Transportation, However bmw Is Claiming That Once The Work Is Completed And After Time Of Warranty They Are No Longer Responsible. I Feel This Is A Serious Safety Concern And bmw Will Bill Customers For The Work Even If They Are Replacing The Equipment With Faulty Parts. I Was Fortunate That I Wasn’t Driving Fast And The Weather Was Nice Or I Could Have Had A Serious Accident With No Steering.. *tr

On July 31st 2017, The Bolt Securing Idler Pulley And Alternator Sheared. Battery Charge Malfunction Light Came On Followed By Loss Of Power Steering. Looking At My Service Record, I See That This Same Bolt Was Subject To A Recall In January 2013 When Car Was At 12332 Miles. The Car Is Now At 63456. Also Noted On bmw Owners Web Site That Many Other Owners Of This E70 Series Design Have Had The Same Repeat Problem. bmw Dealer In Ct Performed The Latest Repair And Offered No Explanation, Except That Their Work Is Guaranteed For 2 Years. Original Recall Performed By Dealer In Raleigh Nc Where Car Was Purchased New Has Advised Me To Post This Report And Call bmwna. I Am Waiting To Hear Back From Them, But First Discussion Was Not Good. They Claimed That They Did Not Have A Record Of This As A Continuing Problem And Would Not Be Able To Give Me Any Assurances That It Would Not Happen Again. I Note That The Part Number Of The New Bolt Just Installed Is The Same As The Old Bolt Installed In 2013. We Were Very Lucky Not To Be Involved In A Serious Accident And Without Some Clear Assurances That bmw Understand How To Fix This Continuing Problem I Am Very Worried About Driving The Car. At The Time Of The Bolt Failure We Were Driving At About 20mph Through The Center Of The Town Of Stratford Ct And Just Managed To Pull Off The Road Into A Train Station Parking Lot.

While Idling In The Middle Of The Night, A Roaring Noise All Of A Sudden Started Underneath The Car. As I Started Moving, The Noise Seemed To Follow The Engine Acceleration And Got Louder. The Steering Wheel Started Getting Harder To Manipulate And The Noise Got Louder At Each Steer. I Was In A Different State, About 40 Miles From My House. By The Time I Got To My House, The Steering Wheel Was Almost Impossible To Maneuver. I Parked The Car To Take It To The Dealer The Next Morning. That Morning, When I Started The Car For The Dealer, The Noise Was Like A Cracking Noise And The Steering Wheel Was Stuck. I Called Roadside Assistance To Tow The Car To The bmw Of Manhattan Dealer. Among Other Things, They Found: Power Steering Reservoir Empty, Connections On Pressure Return Lines Leaking, Gaskets Seals Leaking. After They Fixed The Car, I Started Having Steering Issues. The Steering Wheel Now Has An Extremely Wide Play, The Car Is Rocking At The Slightest Bump, Pulling Left Or Right When Braking. Moreover, When On A Highway At About 55mph, Any Rough Or Path Hole Would Throw The Car On A Zig Zag And I Have To Fight With The Steering Wheel To Keep The Car From Veering Onto Other Cars Running By. I Returned The Car 3 Times To The Same Dealer, 10/07 And 10/23 And After Keeping The Car For Days, They Say Cannot Replicate My Complaint. In The Meantime, I Sent Them Countless Of Explicative Emails And Copied bmw Customer Service To No Avail. I Had To Go To Open Road bmw Of Edison Nj On 12/0314, 2/13/15 And At The 3rd Time On 3/31/15 And At 34,500 Miles, They Found Out This: Excessive Play Inside Steering Rack, Dropped Subframe, Bled The System, Replaced Steering Rack. On 4/3/- 4/5/15, I Am Still Having Sudden Pulls On Braking And Uneven Roads I Learned bmw Recalled 2009- 2012 X5d Sav Vehicles For Steering Wheels Issues. My Car Is Jan 2012.

We Used Out 2012 bmw x5 Diesel For A Round Trip Of Mn To Fl. October Of 2015. We Had The Vehicle Serviced Prior To Departure And Asked If There Was Anything We Needed To Be Aware Of For The Long Trip. Upon Return Trip Back To Mn We Were Alerted By The System Monitor That The Diesel Exhaust Fluid (def) Was Low. We Were 5 Hours Into Our 18 Hour Trip From Fl To Mn. It Was Saturday After 1:00 Pm And We Stopped To Add Def To The System. The Fill Port On The x5 Would Only Accept 4 Oz Of Def With Repeated Attempts To Fill The Reservoir. We Used The Internet To Search The Problem And Found That With Out The bmw Container Of Def The Reservoir Would Not Accept Enough Def To Fill The System. We Also Discovered That There Are Two Reservoirs. The bmw Manual Did Not State That The bmw Bottle Was Needed Nor That There Are Two Reservoirs. We Could Not Purchase The bmw Bottle As No bmw Dealerships Were Open, Nor Would They Be The Next Day. The bmw System Also Stated That The Engine Would Shut Down After The 200 Mile Limit Was Reached. We Had To Stay Overnight In Our Current Location And Then Drive 12 Hours The Next Day, Sunday, With Out Shutting The Engine Off As If We Did The bmw Override Would Shut The Engine Down And We Verified That Fact On The Web. We Made It Home And As Soon As We Shut The Engine Down It Was Disabled. We Purchased The bmw Def Bottle And Filled They Reservoirs. The System Did Not Rest And The Vehicle Had To Be Towed To The Dealer. It Took Them 3 Days To Reset The System And Then Discover The O2 Sensors Were Now Not Functioning And Needed To Be Replaced, Due To The Def Issue. Cost Of The O2 Sensor Replacement Is $2000.00. The System Will Leave You Stranded.bmw‘s Owner Manual Is Incorrect And No One Will Tell You That You Need The bmw Engineered Def Bottle To Refill They System. We Contacted bmw North America Without Any Results.

Very Very Disappointed About The Quality Of bmw And Electric Water Pump That Fails And Needs To Be Replaced On Almost Every bmw Only After Like 30k And Up?

Takata Recall – It Has Been Over One Year Since My Vehicle Was Identified Under This Recall And I Live In A Zone A Which Is The Highest Risk Area. The Local bmw Dealer Has Not Been Able To Give Me Any Idea Of When My Car Will Be Repaired. This Is Unacceptable As People Have Died From This Defect And I Am At Risk Every Time I Drive This Vehicle.

My Temperature Light Came On And bmw Of Catonsville Says That My Two Auxiliary Water Pumps Need Replacing. They Says The Parts Are Not A Recall Item, But When I Gave Them Reference Number 12v-161 Which Is A Old Recall Number I Was Told It Doesn’t Apply To My Car! Also, I Don’t Know If Their Telling Me The Truth But I’ve Been Told That The Engine In My Truck Has Valve Stem Seal Problems For This Same Year. If There Telling Me The Truth, Then I Fine With Making Payment For Repairs, But If They Have An Issue With This Vehicle I’m Truly “unsatisfied!” Can You Look Into This Matter,please? Be Advised, My Vehicle Is Still Drivable.
