Introduced in 2010, one of the more popular BMWs on the road today is the BMW F10 5 series. While popular, these high powered, technologically-advanced vehicles come with their share of inherent problems, most of which are still being discovered. One of the commonly reported problems in the early F10 models is to have jerking and steering issues that affect the handling and performance in this luxury ride.

Some F10 BMW 5 series owners complain about their vehicle veering to the right. If the driver takes their hands off the wheel, the car will drift which causes a possible dangerous situation. In some cases, it is just a common misalignment in the wheels or tires, but if the car is properly aligned, there are other reasons this could be happening. It could be time to rotate the struts, properly inflate the tires, or in worst-case-scenarios replace the steering column. Another thing that could affect steering and performance is the suspension. Since there are so many variables, it is best to contact a certified BMW technician at Bavarian Rennsport to diagnose the problem for you.

The jerking and steering problem is most prevalent in models with electric steering over models with hydraulic steering. It could be as simple as reprogramming or resetting the computer to solve the problem. The issue can be from sub-contractors that developed the electric steering systems, as the drifting is also common in other European Luxury cars like Porsche and Audi. In the BMW models, it tends to affect the earlier model years of the F10 5 Series, as BMW engineers addressed and fixed the problem in later models. Contact our local BMW repair experts to perform a proper diagnosis and repair your car.
