Same thing here.. Everything sticks but HUD settings

Built to order and picked up 7 days ago. So the issue has not been fixed yet. Other than that we are loving the vehicle.

Glad to hear it worked out!

You are describing the same driving impressions I had when I got the car back. Hopefully, the steering issue is a thing of the past.

We haven't noticed any wear issues with the tires...

Mama_jo and jdavid2 those issues sound pretty awful. I too would certainly be considering a different vehicle. I received an x1 as a loaner while the x3 was in the shop and man what a difference in...

Update!

We took the car in for the annual service about 1 month ago. I explained the odd behavior to our service adviser. In addition to the poor handling we also had a few steering malfunction messages...

it is an unerving feeling.

I noticed that turning off traction control improved the tendency to fly into another lane. Perhaps give that a try and see if you notice any improvment, as well. HOnestly, our x3 hasnt been in for...

Thanks.

Well, my wife had taken the x3 on a long trip and said she doesn't notice any issues. I don't think she goes over 65mph so if she is happy perhaps I will let it rest until the scheduled maintenance....

Sounds like I'm not alone then

04prox2 It sounds like you know exactly what I am talkimg about. Taking up the whole lane is another thing I have experienced and definitely feel like I need both hands on the wheel.

Thank you for the information

So, if I am understanding correctly even when it was twitchy the steering wheel would reflect the direction of the tires? Or was the " twitch" minimal to the point where there was no directional...

Something else to help describe

Bascially I feel nothing at the steering wheel while the car is moving in another direction. No resistance or movement to reflect what the tires are doing. I have to basically overcompensate to the...

Thanks for the responses

I don't believe it is tram lining in that the steering wheel does not move.. Just the direction of the car. For instance, I will be in the left lane and perhaps a gust of wind comes along and while...

Hello, first post. I came upon this site when I googled steering issues for the 2011 x3 but so far have not seen my exact potential issue. We traded in or 2009 x3 for the 2011 and I have found that...
