PARKING BRAKE MALFUNCTION
By PAM PALAAD on
2007 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I have owned the X5 for only a year and twice now I encountered a parking brake malfunction. The first time this happened was on Thanksgiving day! Had to get the SUV towed from the gas station, manual hand brake feature would not work. Just today, just went to buy groceries and the parking brake malfunction went on again! Had to wait for tow truck for over 2hrs. No other options but to have SUV towed. Very inconvenient! And have to wait until Monday for dealership to open! Even more inconvenient! Other than this, had to change 2 tires twice due to nail punctures, run flats cannot be patched, spent over $1000! Changed one tire, SUV not even a month old! Not safe for long drives! DO NOT BUY!

"SOS/Roadside Assistance"...BMW needs to hire more courteous and sympathetic roadside assistance reps! Instead of repeating things over and over again with attitude, reps should give "assistance" to driver to help resolve situation in some way! NO HELP, EVER! I regret buying a BMW X5!! SERIOUSLY!
