problem #2

Jul 172015

X5 Convenience 3.0L Twin Turbo V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I was driving my BMW x5 on July 17,2015 when the engine light came on for the second time. The car stalled and then died in the road while I was driving. This is the second time this has happened. Unlike the first time, I was able to re-start the car. The car sputtered and jerked and I was barely able to get it off the highway.

The car was towed to Moses BMW where they informed me the car was in "limp mode". I was told mechanics looked over the car and could find nothing wrong and have no idea at all why the car malfunctioned. They said it could have been an electrical issue, although they could not find anything to explain it. I am not waiting for another problem that puts lives in danger. Breaking down on the highway while driving twice is enough.

Since this has happened twice now, I very rarely drive my x5 because I don't feel safe in it. I also have not allowed my now 5 year old son to ride in the car at all. I have been driving a rental car until I get rid of the x5.
