Braking / Coming to a stop
I have an automatic 2006 X5. At the very end of braking and stopping, I experience a slight hard-stop rather than a smooth slowing down to zero.

Wondering if anyone has experienced this.

I have the same condition but have not looked into it.

Well, the car just conked out this morning, and I have it at the local dealership. I'm going to ask them to look at that.

Keep us posted. Hope your recent bad luck is not too painfull.

I had it moved to a non-dealership garage and everything is fine now, except for the stopping issue. Still not sure what that's about.

Is it more like a lurch than sudden stop? When slowing down(auto) the car really wants you to stop completely while you are say second gear. if you are slowing down gradually and almost creeping it selects 1st gear giving that kind of bump stop. Try stopping a little quicker the last say 10ft to see if it's what I'm talking about. Once you are at zero the car happily selects 1st, you don't feel it and pull away as normal.

I should re-state the issue. I think I misled you guys. So I come to a nice gradual smooth stop and then the car kind of "sits back." It's not a hard jerk. It's like if you had the car in reverse and let up on the break a TINY bit and then press again. You wouldn't spill your grande latte :) but you'd have a little wave motion in the cup. I'm probably making more out of this that I should. It's just annoying.
