Editor's Overview

BMW's X5 returns in fresh form for 2014 to mark its third generation. As such, BMW's rival to luxury SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Audi Q7 boasts the dynamic, powerful – and pricey – characteristics for which this German luxury brand is known.

My car is more than a vehicle but a means to take my family on outings and make memories together. We rely on it to go shopping, visit family and it plays an important role in our lives. We use it for work, play and everything in between.

I like that it is easy to drive, comfortable seating, lots of good safety features, back window tinting/blinds for children, it looks nice and stylish and modern, it gets good mileage. I do not like that it costs so much to repair.

- Beck S

Fuel efficiency, smooth driving luxury. Looks smart.

Do not want to jinx it - but not too much. Had to replace battery after a year. Maintenance computer alerts are not optimal. When u leave a service, it already tells you that you need another.

- Rebecca J

It automatically shuts off if your door is open.

My car is great I have never had any issues with it. It is great for me and my husband, but also will be great for a small family!! We travel a lot in it and it still does great.

- Madison J

Safety Recalls (4)

Latches/locks/linkages Apr 16, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 16, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V202000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2014 X5 SAV vehicles manufactured December 12, 2013, through March 10, 2014, and equipped with the Soft Close Automatic (SCA) option. The rear side door lock mechanisms may not have been manufactured to correct tolerances and when the inside door handle is pulled, the previously engaged child safety lock can disengage.
Consequence:
A disengaged child safety lock would allow the rear seat occupant to pull the door handle twice and open the door while the vehicle is parked or in motion, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear side door locks and any affected door locks will be replaced, free of charge. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
Air Bags Mar 12, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 12, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V147000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015 BMW X5 xDrive 35d Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV) manufactured August 19, 2014, to February 16, 2015, and 2014-2015 BMW X5 xDrive 35i, X5 sDrive 35i, X5 xDrive 50i, Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV) manufactured August 28, 2013, to February 16, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the Head Protection System (HPS) air bag may not be securely connected to the air bag inflator gas generator.
Consequence:
Without a secure connection to the inflator, the HPS air bags may have insufficient inflation during a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Head Protection System, free of charge. The recall began on June 24, 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
Air Bags > Frontal > Driver Side Inflator Module Sep 20, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 20, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V683000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC. (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2015 BMW X3 sDrive28i, X3 xDrive28i, X3 xDrive35i, X3 xDrive28d, X4 xDrive28i and X4 xDrive35i vehicles, and model year 2014-2015 X5 xDrive35i, X5 sDrive35i, X5 xDrive50i, and 2014 X5 xDrive35d vehicles. The affected vehicles have a driver's frontal air bag inflator that may have been improperly welded.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator housing could separate from the base plate and result in metal striking the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's front air bag, free of charge. The recall began on November 1, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
Engine And Engine Cooling > Exhaust System > Emission Control > Gas Recirculation Valve (egr Valve) Oct 24, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 24, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V755000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2013-2018 BMW 328d and 328d xDrive, 2014-2018 328d Sports Wagon and 328d xDrive Sports Wagon, 2014-2016 535d and 535d xDrive, 2015 740Ld xDrive, 2015-2017 X3 xDrive28d SAV and 2014-2017 X5 xDrive35d SAV vehicles equipped with an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) module with an integrated cooler. If the EGR cooler leaks internally, the coolant can mix with diesel engine soot. The high EGR temperatures may result in these particles possibly smoldering and melting the intake manifold.
Consequence:
The melting intake manifold can increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the EGR cooler as necessary. If a leak has already occurred, the engine intake manifold will also be replaced. These repairs will be made free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 17, 2018. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
