BMW 528i ProblemsBurning Smell or Oil Drips on the Ground Due to Engine Oil Leak
Valve cover gasket leaks are common after 60,000 miles. Symptoms will include oil drips under the vehicle and burning oil smell from the engine compartment.
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.
The blower final stage fan resistor is known to fail. Symptoms are the heater fan speed varies regardless of the setting, the fan will not turn off when the car is switched off, or the fan will not switch on at all.

BMW 528i RecallsSeat Mounted Air Bags Do Not Deploy When Needed In An Accident
The igniters in the front seat side air bag assemblies may not function in a crash. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the front seat side air bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
The sensor cluster unit (SCU), if previously replaced during a service visit, may not be able to accurately determine if activation of safety restraint components is necessary in an accident. This could prevent deployment of air bags and other restraint system devices in an accident. Dealers will replace the SCU free of charge to resolve the concern.
The in-tank fuel pump may have wire contacts that are not properly crimped, resulting in the wiring connector melting, fuel leakage and vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module free of charge to resolve the concern.
