On July 30, 2021, my 2017 BMW X5 35d, which had only about 49,000 miles on it and which had been serviced only six weeks before, died without warning. My son and I could have been killed. The car went into Park and had to be towed on a flatbed to the dealer. After 5 days of no word, the dealer falsely accused me of putting gasoline in my diesel vehicle. The dealer eventually determined that the high-pressure fuel pump had failed, which caused exactly the problem listed in BMW's July 29, 2021 recall notice to its dealers: it caused metal fragments to contaminate the entire fuel system. BMW initially advised me that it had no "recall remedy," but when it did, it would replace the fuel pump but would not repair the nearly $13,000 in damage to the fuel system that the fuel pump failure caused. BMW eventually relented and advised it will complete all repairs caused by the fuel pump failure. But it has declined to reimburse me for the "overage" charges I've incurred in towing the vehicle to the dealer and in connection with the rental vehicle they obtained for me. And of course, not a single apology for the harrowing experience that could have resulted in our deaths, nor for the considerable inconvenience caused by this defect that BMW has known about for years.

Front passage door becomes unlocked/ not secure while driving My doors are set to auto-lock when I drive off. Today’s incident occurred when I hit a normal bump in the road. I heard a pop, which was the front passenger door unlocking. This jarred the door from the locked position to rattling in the door frame. The car’s auto lock issue is activated therefore, it’s trying to lock the door. Then car system reports a need to stop the car to prevent rolling as the doors are not secure. It Goes without saying how dangerous this is. Searchers this issue In the Internet. Seems some X5 owners reporting a issue with the door cables? Saw no recall. My car is out of warranty but this is a serious safety issue BMW should address Help! Note, this bumpis located in the parking lot entrance to my office’s garage.

I was driving down the highway at approximately 55mph when the sunroof exploded. Fortunately the sunroof sliding cover was closed and the glass did not enter the car. I did see some pieces flying down the highway behind me. I was not driving under any overpass at time, nor did I hear or see any rocks or objects hit the glass.

THE CAR STOPPED WITHOUT ANY WARNING 3 TIME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WHILE DRIVING MY WIFE AND KIDS INSIDE THE CAR. I CONSIDER VERY LUCKY THIS HAPPENED ON COUNTY ROAD TWO TIME AND ONES IN THE SHOPPING CENTER PARKING LOT, INSTEAD OF MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY. I HAVE TAKEN THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR THE SECOND TIME THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH GAUGES. LAST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS 11/13 WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING WITH THE DAUGHTER TO DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT, GAS READING SHOWS ABOVE 1/4 TANK AND 146 MILES REMAINING (I HAVE PICTURES OF THE CLUSTER). BUT THE CAR ABRUPTLY STOP TWITHOUGHT ANY WARNING WHICH WILL BE A DEADLY SITUATION IF HAPPENED IN THE HIGHWAY. THE REASON FOR IT TO STOP WAS NO GAS IN THE TANK THOUGH IT GIVES A READING OF OVER 1/4 TANK 146 MILES REMAINING. MY LAST VISIT TO THE DEALER WAS ABOUT A MONTH BACK AND I WAS TOLD THEY REPLACED THE GAS TANK AND THE SENSOR INSIDE THE TANK WHICH WAS COVERED UNDER VEHICLE WARRANTY. I FEEL VERY UNSAFE DRIVING THIS CAR, I HAVE REPORTED THE ISSUES BMW NA CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THE CAR IS WITH BMW OF ROCKVILLE.

I AM GLAD THAT I AM SAFE IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT WORSE IF IT WOULD BROKE DOWN ON THE INTERSTATE .

WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING TO WORK THE VEHICLE LOST POWER AND STALLED. SHE HAD JUST TURNED OFF THE HIGHWAY, AND ONTO A SIDE STREET. SHE WAS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND HAD TO BE TOWED. THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT RE-START AND WOULD NOT ENGAGE TO NEUTRAL, SO THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER HAD TO USE SKID BLOCKS. BMW INSPECTED AND FOUND THE FUEL PUMP HAD FAILED AND CONTAMINATED THE ENTIRE FUEL SYSTEM WITH SWARF. THIS LEAVES THE DRIVER AND VEHICLE IN A DANGEROUS POSITION AS THE VEHICLE COMPLETELY STALLS WITH NO PRIOR WARNING.
