BMW Complaint - Poor Quality - 2008 BMX X5
I purchased a new 2008 BMW for $65K. I now have 57,000 miles and am 7,000 out of warranty.
Last weekend, the engine overheated. I took it to the dealership and they told me that the water pump needs replaced, a $1,200 repair.
The glove box molding has warped and in order to open the glove box, you need two people. Each person has to push the molding in on either side while pushing the glove box button, simultaneously.
When the car is started and the steering wheel telescopes out it makes a grinding noise. This has been fixed three times and continues to grind.
Everyday, I have to ask myself, is this a BMW? Is this what I paid $65K for?
Where is the BMW quality that I thought I was purchasing?
