I am in the middle of a catastrophe after having been out of the country for 5 years. I left my brand new 2008 BMW X5 in the care of a relative who left the vehicle outside and unattended for the past 3 years. Apparently the water drains all clogged in the sunroof and leaked into the car. The brakes, tires, and fluids of course need to be changed but the water damage has caused major damage to the electrical system and the entire carpeting would need to be replaced. I've taken the vehicle to a reputable dealership and also to an independent BMW shop who both told me the same thing. They both advised that the car may have additional problems in the future and were skittish about even doing the repair work. On the outside, the car looks perfectly brand new. The water damage never flooded the car, the mats are moist but no smell of mold/mildew. The car has only 10k miles and both locations told me the engine and transmission are perfect. The repair cost comes in around $15k+. What do I do?
Recently (in the last 4 to 6 weeks), my heater stopped working on the passenger side. The blowers work fine, it's just that the air is suddenly cold no matter what the temp settings. In the last week or so, the driver side starts out warm, but after a while it starts blowing cold as well. there are no unusual smells in the cabin, and as I mentioned above ALL of the blowers work well. It seems that if I adjust the heat when it's working, it gets cold immediately.
Please help me solve this mystery. Lots of repairs in the last 11 months!
On startup or shutdown, the car makes a noise, almost like a hydraulic noise. This has always been the case, but recently the sound seems to go on for a long time (almost a minute or two). Also, recently in the morning, the car seems to be very bouncy and this morning I got a "level control malfunction" error on the screen. Please help.
I took my 2008 X5 (60,000 miles) in for break pad replacement. BMW told me I needed to replace radiator and updated hose due to leaking coolant ($1,000) + replace trans sealing sleeve due to leaking ($800) + replace oil filter housing gasket and oil cooler seal due to leaking due to leaking ($630) + replace rear sway bar links due to loose.
Has anyone had these problems with 2008 X5?
If BMW pushed me into repairs do I have any recourse with complaints?
