One month after the 530i 3. Also called a tension arm, this control arm effectively reinforces the geometry of the front wheels, specifically under braking. Either way, its surprisingly frugal operation offsets its requirement for premium gas. The vehicle was not repaired. The car boasted high performance, top safety features, reasonable comfort, and increased luxury and convenience without ever seeming too complicated or isolating. The Active Steering Malfunction came on about a month ago and I could not reset it even with the instruction provided in another thread, therefore it was probably a sensor that went bad since I had this issue before and was able to get rid of the warning by reseting it.
Also i was getting the that message to put the car in N to start the engine. Also, its getting cold once again. I disagreed with her and asked to speak to a manager regarding this recall. Wrapping the new 5 Series is a body nearly as controversial as the iDrive. Furthermore, many after market performance parts were produced for the already swift E60.
Here is a video with the hydraulics acting crazy. The wheels are particularly vulnerable and we appreciated not only how the system helped us gauge other vehicles in parking but how it operates low enough to pick up curbs and help avoid curb rash. I turned off the engine went to a store and when i came back and started the car, the message was gone. Could it be the sensors located on top of tranny? I hope you also make the complaint. Took it back and apparently had no choice but to fix the seat system for safety reasons. All 5-Series models now get a revised version of the oft-criticized system.
I was just driving downhill - high speed - when the tranny skipped and jumped from 4 to 5 and 6 in no time. The contact stated that while driving approximately 40 mph, the passenger air bag and seat belt warning lights illuminated while there was no passenger present. We hope our site will help with selecting of a reliable and safe car. Accessing the scan feature takes three selections the first time and an additional two clicks of the selector each subsequent time you start and stop. Repairs, though few and far between so far, are costly. We have upper and lower hoses, of course.
Without going into technical depth on how this system works, it adjusts the effort and steering ratio to greatly reduce the amount you have to move the steering wheel to make quick maneuvers, and it also interfaces with the stability control to help intervene and restabilize the car. They got the restraining system to reset. Now i can get into 1st gear but the car goes backwards. All three versions have a standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission. This is a car that feels better the more you drive it.
The identical failure occurred after the prior repair. Warning lights coming on and off, seats or steering wheel moving like they are haunted, radio malfunctions, climate control funniness. She suggested that if still have an issue to contact your office and file a complaint. However, it was the most solid driving, comfortable and beautiful car I have ever owned. For example, if you are driving slow and put in 30 degrees of wheel rotation, active steering may add on something like 10 degrees of equivalent wheel rotation giving you a combined total of 40, while the wheel is turned 30 degrees. Poly bushings are also available. One of the reasons why the 5-Series feels so sprightly just with the 3.
Great for a commute, most comfortable seats in any car we've ever had, and very nimble for a relatively large sedan. Knowing that the screen is working properly. There is a recall on the passenger seat sensing mat. I took the batter to auto zone and had then fully charge the batt. It sucks because the car acts weird every day. My recollection is it extends the warranty on that item to 10 years on affected cars.
In keeping with the models that preceded it, its styling was kept simple, conservative, and evolutionary, but it will age well over time, much as 5-Series models from the 70s and 80s still look sharp today. Made of kind of squishy plastic, these adjustment screws twist off or break, letting your low beam dip straight to the ground. The fan is a plastic unit that gets brittle with age and head cycling. Basically the car shuts things down to conserve power. The clutch is now self-adjusting for a longer service life. Road impression Over nearly 500 miles of driving, mostly on curvy rural roads, we never felt short on power with the 530i. Today i changed the salmon and orange relays and not much happened.
