Daughter looking to buy. Never had a foreign car before. Wondering if worth the money and what to expect in future costs.

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a 04 BMW X5 4.8 is at a dealer. Upon test driving, there was a strong vibration in the vehicle at idle. As I drove the vehicle the vibrations went away, however, the vibration returned as I came to a stop. There were no other noises, brakes work awesome, the vehicle has an awesome pickup. No unusual sounds were detected by me. However, I am concerned about the vibration. The car has been keyed bumper to bumper, tires are in good condition. The dealer is asking $11K, Can anyone advise as to what would be a good price for a vehicle as such? Thanks, much, in advance.

p1093,p0313 are codes that came up55c4 also

This is a first time problem I think it might be a fuel pump

Says it has a clean title but other than that there is no info on any issues.

electrical problem. while driving just the heat control section goes blank and turns back on readomly

The dealer diagnosed that I have one bad ignition coil and said it was up to me if I wanted to replace all six.

I was driving down the interstate and without any warning started hearing a loud meteal to metal grinding and lost power to the wheels. The engine seems to be fine, starts okay and revs okay. Put it in gear and I get the grinding. Had to be towed home. The car free rolls now (park doesn't hold the car) so I have to use the parking brake. Trying to get an idea if this is a common issue that is repairable or if the Transmission is more than likely trashed. Also, I replaced the front axles about 19 months ago with no issues.

I am looking to purchase a 2003 BMW X5. It has 172,000 miles on it

I was told my fuel pump is no good. after the dealership diagnostic the vehicle, I was told it was a fuel sensor

When the car is cranked front passenger side window goes down.

Notice idle about 600 rpm, changed flapper, how do I solve issue?

I just had the fluid filled.

My transmission is not driving right with that on

panel. This panel has no max button.

The tire like is something wrong.

Dealer adviced to change as

Started before when jumping it, but now just turns over.

noise from fan. it gets really loud. coming from front of vehicle. could this be a belt or the actual fan? car has 200k miles. it almost sounds like the car isnt shifting gears. I dont know what this could be

I took my 2003 X5 to the regular mechanic shop in town for its 100k service. My transmission intermittently has issues going from reverse into drive. They said the transmission fluid is burnt, and won't touch it. I've heard from other forums and mechanics that the fluid being burnt was normal after 100k miles. I figure my transmission fluid is a little low which may be causing the slow gear change issue. Does anyone have any advice before I take it to a much more expensive shop? If it seems normal, I can change it all myself, but if anyone thinks it'll just make the transmission go out faster (like the original mechanic shop said), I'll take it to a specialty shop.

Thank you!!

Oil level reads normal. The sound is not constant, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesnt

All my speakers are out but the one on the drivers side.. Also the locks, key remote, alarm system etc

After changing hoses

I got my engine oil leak seal valve and gasket fixt my BMW still exhausted pipe blue smoke

Recently bought a new key for my car and now the new key nor the old doesn't work. I know it not my starter because I ran a Hotwire to it and it still crank but doesn't turn over. Kind of lost on what should I do any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
