Slow response transmission

2008 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Review
The Vehicle has great styling and the comfort seats are very supportive. This is my 3rd X5. The biggest complaint is the transmission. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times for this problem with a little improvement although very short lived.The transmission is always in too high of a gear at slow speeds. Trying to accelerate, the transmission will not downshift without flooring the accelerator pedal which results in a rough downshift after a time delay .My previous X5s had a very responsive transmissions. I have driven the 3 and 5 series vehicles and their transmissions are nothing short of excellent. This is very frustrating and I will not be purchasing another X5.
Favorite Features
comfort seats. styling,adaptive headlights
Suggested Improvements
transmission. Controls make simple functions very complicated and unintuitive. Instrument panel needs updating.
