Body, Interior & Misc., October 8, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

BMW is recalling 2011 X5 and X6 SAV models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models are equipped with 20-inch wheels, yet the label states the vehicles have 19-inch wheels. This can lead to incorrect tire inflation, which can affect handling and increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will mail the correct labels to the customer or install the label free of charge.

BMW X5 xDrive Reviews

2009 X5d. great mileage, 26 combined, 29-30 hwy. Drives nice and is a great looking vehicle. Had the check engine light on and it took 7 times over two years to finally fix. BMW does not seem to really care about cusomer issues. Other issues: sunroof would not close, battery died once and has been fine ever since. The interior is nice and it is a great car, just wish I didn't have to spend so much time in the shop. Check engine has been fixed without returning for 4 months. Maybe 7th time is a charm!

I brought this car and many malfunctions have occurred. First, there is the malfunction with the transmission and i had to get it fix for 6k but thnx god it was under the warranty. Next the screw fell off from the pipe and the it would make so many noises, it is disturbing and annoying. Finally there is a leakage in the oil and told me to refill multiple times i brought it to the shop and i want a need one is it possible?
