Hi folks! I've been away for awhile. Would you mind updating me on the state of the X3 transmission issues for the 2009 model? I had an awful 07X3 which was dangerous to drive because of the...

Angry "it was designed this way"

We took our 09/06 2007 X3 in for the 6th time today, and an engineer from BMWNA drove it. Like others before us (above), we were told "that is the way this X3 is supposed to drive". What?!! So,...

case number BMWNA

Folks:
I called BMWNA today to officially complain about the dangerous transmission in my 2007 (09/06 build) X3. After I stated the issues, I was able to get the customer relations rep's name and...

good decision! my x3 ran fine for the first few hunderd miles, so a test drive and a fine tooth comb won't necessarily tell you the truth about the transmission. Getting educated about an issue is a...
