Kick when downshifting into first gear

Hi all,

Recently purchased my first BMW - 2009 x5 3.0. I have noticed when I roll to a stop the shift to first gear from second is not smooth and the car has a slight stutter. It's nothing drastic but it's bothering me. I notice it alot more when i let the car roll to a stop and not apply the brakes. Before I take it to the dealer I wanted to check with you guys if maybe this was normal? Or is the normal downshift supposed to be completely smooth just like the downshift for the higher gears?

Please let me know how your X5 acts and if it's worth taking to the dealer.

Thanks everyone,

Tommy

This has been discussed extensively, without clear and definitive solutions. Some have it, most do not...some say reprogramming fixes it- others not.

THE most important factor?

Getting the dealer to agree AND DOCUMENT that there is an issue. There have been reports that dealers are told to respond with "shifting normally at this time" for up to 3 visits before they will take action.

Do a search, you will find much more context. Use words like "jerky" and "transmission"
