My X3 is back in the shop again and will keep going back til they get it fixed, give me a manual, or buy it back.
For something that is such a small problem ---- more and more people seem to be stepping forward to voice the exact same complaints. On this web site alone there are 76 owners with the transmission problem. All of them are wrong? Hardly.
In the meantime as usual the loaner (528xi- now you know why I like my dealer and not BMWNA) drives smooth as silk. No jerking, hesistation, nothing. The 328i which has the same transmission has always behaved when a loaner as well.
Best advice in the meantime is keep every invoice, service slip, etc... and document everything.
Please report your transmission issues to the NHSTA, BBB, etc..
Sooner or later we will get this solved or BMWNA may be out $3,040,000 just by rough count on this website. Not to mention all lost future sales.
