2003 X5 3.0 D Sport; full BMW history bought Mar 07 from BMW dealer £24750
Great to drive but most unreliable car I've ever had
Faults so far:
Feb 10 rear light unit failed - cost £150
Oct 09 gearbox failed (v common)- cost me £4,000 !!
Jun 09 2 parking sensors failed (v common) cost £250
Sep 08 door mechanism broke (they all do this too) £170
Jul 08 front light unit failed - cost £160
servicing costs £2000 + tyres £800
car worth now £10,000. That's over £22,000 + fuel (26mpg) & insurance for 3 yrs (35,000 miles)
BMW know about the common faults but don't seem to care. When you have to climb into your £25k car thru the passenger door cos the driver's door mechanism has fallen apart you start to wonder about 'ultimate driving machine'
