2007 BMW X3 Power Train Driveline problems & defects.

BMW X3 Power Train Driveline problems : 1.

The Transmission On The 2007 bmw x3 (gm6 Transmission) Hesitates In Acceleration During Drive Mode. It Has Become Unsafe To Make A Fast Lane Change. I Almost Got Rear-ended Today. I Live In A Mountain Top Community So Driving Down Hill The Down Shift In Manual (steptronic) 4th To 3rd And 3rd To 2nd Pretty Much Allows The Car To Lung Forward As If In Neutral. In Relying On The Transmission To Safely Slow The Car It Practically Forces You Into The Rear Of Another Car Or Does Not Allow Me To Safe Slow The Car Without Having To Use Hard Breaking. My Car Has Been In The Shop 5 Times Now. I Am Being Told “this Is Just The Way It Is” I Spent 6 Hours With The bmw Regional Engineer Test Driving And Doing Software Modifications. We Compared This To A 2008 Model. Any x3 With The Same Transmission Is Going To Have The Same Issue. *tr

The Motorcycle Was In Normal Use. I Was Actually Returning Home From A 3300 Mile Trip When The Failure Occurred. At First I Detected A Rear Wheel “wobble” Which I Attributed To A Tire Problem. After Pulling Off The Road And Inspecting The Rear Wheel I Discovered That The Tire Was Fine But The Wheel Itself Was Loose And Could Be Moved Nearly An Inch Side To Side. This Is The Second Failure Of The Rear Wheel Assembly On This Bike. I Reported The First Occurrence In 2006 As Well. At The Shop The Mechanics Were Able To Remove The Wheel By Simply Pulling On It. At That Time I Realized How Luck I Was To Have Pulled Off Before The Wheel Separated From The Vehicle On The Road. The Manufacturer, bmw Na, Inspected The Vehicle And Authorized Replacement Of The Entire Final Drive Assembly Including The Brakes (which Were Damaged By The Wheel Movement). *tr
