Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 BMW X5 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 042011

X5 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


The reason why you don't see many reports for the BMWX5 is that there are too many car related issues to fill out a separate form for each one!. Power steering failure, blower motors(2), final stage resistors (3) half axle shafts, oil separators, broken door handles, replaced the central locking mechanism, wheel bearings wiper motors, HID Headlights/taillights. Navigation System after the warranty ended. BMW wanted $3300 for that piece of crap. I use my iphone instead!. Best driving SUV I ever owned, worst reliability ever encountered. Had it not been for the warranty I would ave easily racked up $16,000 in repairs over 3 years. came with a 50,000 mi full warranty that I utilized on a least 26 different occasion.
