WHAT WOMEN SHOULD KNOW WHAT ALL BMW X5 OWNERS SHOULD FEAR, AND WHY BMW SHOULD RECALL THEIR SUV. I AM A 36-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. I DRIVE A 2002 BMW X5. THEY CHOSE TO HIDE FROM CONSUMERS, THEIR PATHETIC CHOICE OF A SAFE LOCKING MECHANISM, AND A FAILURE OF AN ALARM SYSTEM. THE ONLY THING KEEPING A THIEF FROM GETTING INTO YOUR SUV, IS A LOCK THAT WEIGHS LESS THAN TWO QUARTERS. A THIEF NEEDS 5 SECONDS, A SCREWDRIVER, AND YOUR SUV IS THEIRS. NOT ONLY DOES THE SPLIT SECOND REMOVAL OF THIS LOCK ALLOW THEM INTO YOUR X5, BUT IT IMMEDIATELY SHUTS OFF THE SO-CALLED ALARM SYSTEM, UNLOCKS ALL YOUR DOORS, AND OPENS ALL YOUR WINDOWS, INCLUDING THE SUNROOF. ALL WITH JUST A FLICK OF THE WRIST. TO MAKE THE SITUATION WORSE; BMW IS AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM, CHOOSING TO DO NOTHING ABOUT IT. IN A LITTLE OVER A YEARS TIME, THEY HAVE BROKEN INTO MY X5 TWICE. THE FIRST ATTEMPT NEARLY COST ME MY LIFE. ONLY 2 DAYS AFTER RECEIVING MY VEHICLE, IT WAS BROKEN INTO. FORTUNATELY, I WAS MY OWN WITNESS. MY SUV, PARKED ONLY 20 FEET FROM THE STORE I WAS IN AT THE TIME, WAS BROKEN INTO IN LESS THAN 10 SECONDS. THEY POPPED THE LOCK OUT OF THE DRIVER SIDE DOOR, WHICH IN TURN DISABLED THE ALARM, THUS, NEVER GOING OFF, WAS IN MY DRIVER SIDE SEAT ATTEMPTING TO START MY VEHICLE. SEEING THE WHOLE THING, REALIZING WHAT WAS TAKING PLACE, I IMMEDIATELY RAN TO PROTECT WHAT WAS MINE. IT WAS 3PM, ON A HEAVILY POPULATED STREET.

SCARRING HIM AS A RESULT OF MY INSANITY, HE SLIPPED OUT OF MY X5, INTO A WAITING CAR, WHICH ATTEMPTED TO RUN ME OVER AS THEY SPED AWAY. THE LUXURY STATUS OF THE X5, THE FACT THAT I AM A WOMEN, THE DOOR LOCK BEING A WELL-KNOWN DEFECT APPARENT TO THIEVES; ALL COMBINE TO MAKE ME FEEL AS IF A BIGGER TARGET HAS BEEN PUT ON MY BACK.

BMW X5 2002 Engine And Engine Cooling Report #10086968

BMW X5 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 23, 2004.BMW X5 2002, manufactured by BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . MY WIFE WAS DRIVING HER X5 ON A VERY COLD DAY IN JANUARY. SHE HEARD A LOUD BANG AS IF SHE HAD HIT SOMETHING. SHE STOPPED THE CAR BUT SAW NOTHING SO SHE DROVE ANOTHER 1/4 MILE HOME. AS SOON AS SHE STOPPED THE CAR FUMES STARTED BILLOWING FROM THE ENGINE. ON OPENING THE HOOD WE FOUND A SHATTERED VALVE COVER. SHE TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER WHO WAS VERY GOOD ABOUT EXPLAINING WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND FIXING THE PROBLEM. APPARENTLY, BMW DECIDED NOT TO INSULATE PART OF THE OIL SEPARATOR VALVE FOR SOME OF THE X5 ENGINES. IN COLD WEATHER THE VALVE CAN STICK OPEN OR CLOSED CAUSING EITHER ENGINE FAILURE OR, AS IN MY WIFE'S CASE, A HIGH CRANKCASE PRESSURE WHICH EXPLODES THE VALVE COVER. THE VEHICLE WAS ABOUT 17 MONTHS OLD AND HAD ABOUT 5 THOUSAND MILES ON IT WHEN THIS HAPPENED, SO THE REPAIR WITH REPLACEMENT OF THE INADEQUATE PART WAS DONE UNDER WARRANTY. BMW KNEW THAT THIS PROBLEM COULD OCCUR, THEY HAD ALREADY SENT A BULLETIN TO EVERY DEALER LETTING THEM KNOW ABOUT IT BUT HAVE DECIDED AGAINST ISSUING A RECALL.*AK.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 5500 miles.

OVER THE YEARS AFTER PURCHASING MY 2002 BMW X5, I HAVE REPORTED TO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT OF WEATHERFORD BMW THAT THE TRANSMIISION WOULD NOT SHIFT GEARS PROPERLY AND THAT THE ENGINE WOULD ALL OF A SUDDEN START REVVING UP. AS THIS IS HAPPENING, THE ENGINGE WOULD SURGE AND BUCK AT THE SAME TIME. EVEN THOUGH, I AND MY WIFE HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THESE ISSUES, THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT WAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE SCENARIO OR EXPERIENCED THESE PROBLEMS WHILE SERVICING MY VEHICLE. WHILE DRIVING THE X5, NOT ONLY ME, BUT ALSO MY WIFE, SHE WOULD INFORM ME THAT THE ENGINE WOULD BUCK AND SURGE WHILE SHE WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE. I BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE OF THESE ISSUES WITH THE TRANSMISSION AND THE ENGINE, THAT MY VEHICLE, A 2002 BMW X5 IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. WITH THIS ALL SAID AND DONE, I WAS INVOLVED IN A HORRIBLE ACCIDENT WHERE THE VEHICLE IS NOW TOTALED, BUT I WAS ABLE TO WALK AWAY WITH ACHES AND PAIN (PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY). I DO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS I HAD WITH THE TRASMISSION AND ENGINE, IT WAS A DIRECT CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT AND THAT BMW SHOULD REIMBURSE ME FOR THE 2005 BMW X5 THAT I JUST PURCHASED TO REPLACE MY PREVIOUS X5. ALSO, IN QUIZZING THE SALES MANAGER AT THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED MY NEW X5, I ASKED IF THERE WERE ANY MAJOR CHANGES TO THE VEHICLE. HIS REPLY WAS THAT DUE TO TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS WITH THE X5 - BMW CHANGED THE TRANSMISSION. THEREFORE, SINCE BMW WAS AWARE OF THESE ISSUES, AGAIN, I BELIEVE THAT BMW SHOULD REIMBURSE ME THE TOTAL PURCHASE PRICE OF MY 2005 X5. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT ME AT 415.420.9273.*AK .Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5UXFA53522L.

BMW X5 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 13, 2008.BMW X5 2002, manufactured by BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS ON A 2002 BMW X5 3.0 AUTOMATIC WITH 69000 MILES. THE VEHICLE SLIPS IN REVERSE, AT TIMES IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. I'VE CONDUCTED ALL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE SINCE PURCHASED FROM ORIGINAL OWNER. I TOOK CAR TO A SHOP WHO SERVICES BMW'S AND THEY CHECKED THE TRANSMISSION FLUID, WHICH WAS OK. LATER AFTER DOING RESEARCH ON PROBLEMS WITH BMW TRANSMISSION I WAS AMAZED ON HOW MANY COMPLAINTS THERE ARE WITH THE BMW TRANSMISSION. IF I WOULD OF KNOWN OF THE PROBLEM I WOULD OF NOT BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE OR ANY BMW. I WAS TOLD FROM MECHANICS THAT WORK ON THIS VEHICLE IT WILL COST ME AROUND $5000.00 TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION AND SOONER OR LATER IT WILL FAIL BECAUSE THEIR TRANSMISSIONS ARE SEALED AND DO NOT REQUIRE FLUIDS OR MAJOR SERVICING. AFTER DOING ADDITIONAL RESEARCH ONLINE FOR ANY RECALL INFORMATION BMW HAS NOT SUBMITTED ONE WHATSOEVER. I AM PRETTY SURE BMW IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND KNOWING A RECALL WILL COST THEM ALOT OF MONEY, THEY REFUSE TO ADMIT AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH THEIR TRANSMISSIONS. I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE AT A REASONABLE PRICE BUT WITH ME BEING THE ONLY INCOME IN MY HOUSEHOLD (MILITARY) I SIMPLY CANNOT AFFORD THE REPAIR. I DO NOT EXPECT ANY RESOLUTION FROM BMW, HOWEVER, I WANT TO FILE THIS COMPLAINT TO CREATE AWARENESS FOR FUTURE CONSUMERS OF BMW AUTOMOBILES. THIS WILL BE MY FIRST AND ONLY BMW. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5UXFA53502L.

AS WE RESEARCHED ONLINE, WE FOUND THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ACROSS BMW MODELS. ADDITIONALLY, BMW HAS REDESIGNED THIS PART AND ADDED INSULATION TO FIX THIS DESIGN FLAW.

I HAVE RUN INTO THE PROBLEM OF THE REAR PASSENGER (RIGHT-SIDE) DOOR UNLOCK. IT CANNOT BE UNLOCKED BOTH FROM THE OUTSIDE AND INSIDE OF THE DOOR. I DID SOME RESEARCH ON THE WEB SITES. THERE IS NOT A WAY TO OPEN THE DOOR. DEALER HAS TO UNBOLT THE WHOLE DOOR IN ORDER TO GET IT OUT. THE SAME PROBLEM CAN OCCUR TO ANY OF THE DOORS (OR ALL) AT THE SAME TIME. MOST PEOPLE (INCLUDING MYSELF) ARE HAVING CONCERN ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE PASSENGERS/DRIVERS IF THE DOOR CANNOT BE OPENED FROM THE INSIDE IN THE CASE OF EMERGENCY (SUCH AS THE LEXUS' ACCELERATION PROBLEM OR FIRE/SMOKE) ESPECIALLY THE KIDS CANNOT BREAK THE WINDOW'S GLASS. CAN THE NHTSA ASK BMW BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING CORRECTIVE ACTION ASAP? OR BMW WILL WAIT TO TAKE ACTION AFTER ENOUGH PEOPLE DIE FROM THE BAD DESIGN. I HAVE NOT FIXED MY DOOR (SINCE BMW WILL CHARGE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS). AND I HAVE A 3 1/2 YEARS OLD KID. I THINK THAT BMW NEEDS TO RECALL THIS NEGLECTED PROBLEM. *TR.Mileage was 93000 miles.

UPON INSPECTION, WE WERE TOLD THAT THE TIMING CHAIN AND CAM ADJUSTERS IMPLODED POSSIBLY DUE TO THE FORMATION OF ENGINE SLUDGE. ESTIMATED COST OF REPAIR IS $8000. THE X5 WAS PROPERLY MAINTAINED ACCORDING TO THE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE WITH BMW APPROVED OIL. THE FORMATION OF SLUDGE MIGHT HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY A FAILURE OF THE CRANKCASE VENTILATION SYSTEM. REPAIR INCLUDES THE INSTALLATION OF NEW CAM SENSORS, ACTUATORS AND NEW CAMSHAFTS. ALSO THE REMOVAL OF METAL PARTICLES IN THE LUBRICATION SYSTEM. THIS EXPENSIVE REPAIR MAY HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF BMW HAD RECALLED THE OIL SEPARATOR THEY DETERMINED WAS DEFECTIVE YEARS AGO. THERE IS NO MENTIONING OF A MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE FOR THE TIMING CHAIN, AND ASSOCIATED PARTS. WE HAVE ALREADY ENDURED THE EXPENSE OF TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT.

IN JANUARY OF 2010 DURING A COLD WEATHER SPELL, I STARTED MY CAR AND STARTED DRIVING SLOWLY. AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES I NOTICED SMOKE COMING FROM ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND FROM EXHAUST PIPES. I STOPPED THE VEHICLE AND HAD IT TOWED TO A CERTIFIED MECHANIC. HE DIAGNOSED THE ISSUE AS A FAILURE OF THE SEPARATION VALVE THAT CAUSED THE INCREASE PRESSURE UNDER THE VALVE COVER. FORTUNATELY, I WAS ABLE TO AVOID EXTENSIVE DAMAGE AND MY BILL WAS "ONLY" AROUND $350 (PLUS TOWING). I DID MY RESEARCH AND FOUND THAT BMW HAD KNOWN ABOUT THAT PROBLEM ALL ALONG AND DID NOTHING. THERE WAS A TSB ISSUED FOR CANADIAN MARKET BUT NO RECALL WAS ISSUED. LATER MODELS OF X5 WERE EQUIPPED WITH UPDATED VALVE, IT APPEARS THAT MANY OWNERS HAD THEIR ENGINES COMPLETELY DESTROYED AND THE COMPANY DID NOTHING TO HELP THEM. I'M ENJOYING DRIVING MY X5 BUT BELIEVE THAT THE COMPANY SHOULD HAVE RECTIFIED THE PROBLEM EARLIER AND SHOULD HAVE COMPENSATED THE OWNERS FOR OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSES FOR THE PROBLEM THAT WAS WELL KNOWN ONE..Mileage was 98000 miles.

BMW X5 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 09, 2013.BMW X5 2002, manufactured by BMW of North America, LLC had a problem with STRUCTURE:BODY . ON MANY OCCASIONS BEFORE AS WELL AS TODAY I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE FRONT DOOR LOCKS LATCHES MALFUNCTIONING, USUALLY, IN COLD WEATHER. EITHER THE DOORS CANNOT BE OPENED AT ALL OR. IF OPENED (USUALLY MANUALLY) THEY CANNOT BE CLOSED/LATCHED AT ALL, THIS USUALLY HAPPENS IN COLD WEATHER AND THE PROBLEM GOES AWAY WHEN THE TEMPERATURE OUTSIDE GOES UP. THIS IS A SERIOUS DESIGN FLAW THAT IS, POTENTIALLY, SAFETY RELATED AS DRIVING WITH DOOR NOT LATCHED IS UNSAFE. I'M WONDERING IF THIS COULD HAVE RESULTED IN INJURIES AND/OR DEATHS IN ACCIDENTS INVOLVING AFFECTED BMW X5. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 150000 miles.
