Mein Auto: 2009 BMW X5 xDrive 3.0i
I got an update on this incident. I sent the X3 to a BMW dealership for investigation. I was told that the Vanos solenoid sensors were faulty causing the vehicle to surge. I don't know enough about these sensors so I will have to trust BMW. My concern is that what if they fail again? What kind of an accident am I going to end up in? If a faulty sensor can have such a serious consequence, then there is a design flaw here.
