Problems With The BMW X5 You Need To Know About

Is a BMW X5 Worth the Issues It Comes With?

The Problematic BMW X5

You bought your BMW X5 for its performance, right? But surely you didn’t expect the issues that have come with owning a precision vehicle like the X5. BMW is generally known for building safe, reliable vehicles that meet the needs of those drivers looking for performance, comfort, and style. Still, over the years, some significant issues have cropped up in different models. Some model years have been more prone to problems than others. You may want to avoid X5s from 2008, 2009, 2013, 2014, and 2015, as they’ve been the most problematic years for the X5. Suppose you already own or are considering purchasing an X5. In that case, you may want to see the team at Rocco’s European Garage for a pre-purchase inspection to ensure any of the problems BMW has addressed have been addressed in the specific vehicle you’re considering.

What Problems Does the X5 Have?

One of the primary problems with the X5 is water leaks from the sunroof. These leaks are caused when the drain tubes meant to funnel rain and other precipitation away from the sunroof allow that water to enter the cabin instead. It might not seem like a big problem, but water in the cabin can affect the carpet, the seats, and the electrical systems. Another X5 problem is the engine stalling issue found predominantly in the 2011 model. The engine on the 2011 X5 would often stall while the vehicle was traveling at low speeds but could also do so at higher speeds. This became a safety issue for drivers when the engine control module shifted the vehicle into safe mode, and the ability to accelerate was lost. The X5 also had overheating and transmission issues tied to components of those systems failing or malfunctioning.
