Report: Front Tension Strut Bushings May Fail
BMW 745Li Problem
Average Mileage: 95,584 mi (75,000 mi - 112,753 mi)
The front thrust rod bushings—also referred to as tension strut bushings—are known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps. These worn bushings should be replaced.
