This vehicle is too new for detailed information on common problems.
- Vehicles manufactured before July 2014: TSB – The vehicle’s DME software may have incorrect Engine Position Management parameters, which can cause symptoms of a CEL, the engine entering a reduced power mode with an error message of “Drivetrain Malfunction,” and/or VANOS faults despite the engine being mechanically sound and no unusual VANOS noises
- Vehicles manufactured between July 2013-July 2014: TSB – Idling for long periods of time followed immediately by full throttle driving can cause engine knock, and eventually engine damage. Updating the DME fixes this.
- X5 M vehicles manufactured before July 2015: Reduced engine power; the error message “Drive Fault: Drive at moderate speed;” and DME faults 120208, 120408, and/or 120908 may be due to a DME software error. Updating the DME fixes this.
- Vehicles manufactured before April 2016: TSB – Some rear shock absorbers may have been assembled with the incorrect guide support, which can cause a rattling noise; there is a replacement guide
