Had mine fixed last week while getting the oil change, I was there all day. Had the tires rotated. They had a program update that took three hours to complete. Had to tell them to change the wipers before I drove off.

Other issues :

1 - Auto wipers wait for the windshield to be totally covered before they activated.
2 - Start/Stop button hesitation or sometimes non-responsive.
3 - Tailgate open from hatch button or remote is finicky.

They say they found nothing wrong, nothing to adjust. Still digging the X5d.

Old news, had them done on both of our diesels way ahead of the letter that came in yesterday. No biggie, glad that BMW takes action to ensure our vehicles are safe.

I bought a used BMW X5 2010. Is there an easyway to find out If this vehicle's previous owner responded to this recall?
