First the truck had a couple eletrical gremlins that would come and go. For the used car buyer, this means buying a model that is five or six years old is probably smarter than buying a newer one. I have a few questions about these lovely beasts. It will be the Last thing to break right after the wheels fall off. What they have going for them is their large size, making them s safe bet in a crash. If it's an electronic problem then it will likely set a code. They tell you what you need to know and give you the choice for service.
Failures of the fuel pumps and the fuel injectors are also common. The 2008 — 2010 is above average. Some questionable designs were implemented, leaving weak points in mission critical areas. Overall, this series did well in crash tests. One mechanic told me it need a tune up, another one says it needs a special oil, and the third says its the motor burning oil cuz of high miles 127k. Most dont make it much past 150k.
They troubleshot to a bad component in the electrical system and had the car finished in a couple of hours and for a minimal charge. Cory, did you have this code diagnosed from the light being on? Prescott is fortunate to have such a fine tuned auto repair business. How can I tell if I have a M62 or N62? Expect your investment to depreciate a great deal. They also know their cars. I have oil leaking problem, doing my research turned out that most of them have the oil leaks problem after 100k miles or so, so every 2 week i have to add oil when its low on oil.
The dealer said it is happens with X5 as it a heavy vehicle, which no body would buy as a justifiable reason for a premium luxury vehicle. When you take it for a test drive, be on the lookout for rough shifting and clunks in the drive train. When our vehicles--an Avalon and a Tacoma--need something, they let us know. In the 335i and 535i, check for problems with the fuel pump if the car takes a long time to crank and idles roughly from a cold start. I took it to Prescott Import to have a used car inspection done.
About a month ago my transmission or the vehicle started quick and hard shifting on it feels like 2nd, 3rd, 4th very hard, jerky and quickly. Tires are not straight, they are a bit outwardd inclined, so,i had to change 6 tires in 1 year and 5 month period. Most of the time the car will start, but at other times it won't. You made a good point about the extra hp at the top not being needed, i did not think of that. Adam; This article is very helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to put it together.
I can totally assure you, the 4. Compare that to the Toyota Highlander for the same year. With the engine running Im getting a volt meter reading of 11. Consumer Reports rated the 7-Series models as below average. The work done will be the work required. You blow blue smoke, and have random misfires.
This is why I've made an effort to get a better understanding of automotive software and programming. I also have a problem with the shifting. I am looking for a pre 2005. I've finally gotten one, and I love it! Because cooling system problems lead directly to overheating, the repairs need to be done quickly. So, I hope that helps you track down X5 hard shifting problems and find a solution that gets you back on the road.
There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. My latest is an X5 and I love it. Thanks again and Happy Holidays. Use a better material for the expansion tank. The car requires premium fuel, superior tires, synthetic oil, as well as higher-than-normal cost for labor and parts.
When it comes to reliability, Consumer Reports scores models in the 1999 — 2005 range of the 3-Series as at or below average. Failed to get data, please try again. The diesel model is less expensive when it comes to fuel, but overall it costs more for upkeep. The 1-Series has rear-wheel drive, and seats four, though two people must make do with the very limited rear seating arrangement. The seats are rated highly for comfort and the materials get high marks for quality.
