Mein Auto: X5
I love the car compared to other SUV's X5 is the best. However, My car just has so many problems. From trims to electronic problems. Yeah I don't like the fact the car was US made.

That clunking problem is from a bad accumulator or adjustable swaybar (Self leveling and/or Sport package). I'm on my second round of repairs, and hope this to be the last.

My 07 X5 is back in the shop for the third time to fix the clunking noise as of this morning.

The underbody clunking noise is back when going over bumps. This time; however, it is intermittent and comes with clunking sound/feel when turning the steering wheel left or right at low speed.

Something is broken/worn up front, and I can hear a harmonic on the front left wheel when accelerating.

Other problems:

My gloove box cover (top piece) has started to shrink and pull itself off the backing panel. Its best described as a potato chip. This is in national back-order.

Rear passenger window regulator (motor) makes a clicking sound when actuated up or down. This will be repaired tomorrow.

I too am hearing creeks from the back and will get to those once the major/obvious problems are resolved.

We are getting to the point where this vehicle is losing it's appeal. I'll keep you all posted.

Angry

I have had all the same problems with my 2007 x5 3.0! 9k miles on it. This is just a bad bmw! I have had others and they were great! oh well.

1) I drive failure!
2) ventilation fans go out once in a while, i hit a bump and it kicks back on.
3) high battery drain warning, sporatic
4) headlights are out and rear tail lights out! dealer said this is from not driving the car enough and the battery does not get charged! you got to be kidding me!
5) sirius radio goes out once in a while!
6) sporatic electronic issues that just happen once and never come back again, very strange!
