BMW F10 5 Series Transmission Issues

Does your F10 5 Series have transmission issues? Book an appointment online for BMW repairs in Jacksonville, FL. Best rates in Southeast.

Beginning its model year in 2010, the F10 5 series is the latest series of BMWs. The F10 5 series is a high-performance vehicle and is one of the most advanced luxury vehicles on the market. Even the best BMWs have some inherent problems that drivers will need to address. Because this vehicle is still relatively new on the market, BMW is still identifying bugs that need to be fixed in the F10 5 series. The F10 5 series is known for having transmissions issues.

When your F10 5 series is having transmission issues, you will notice there is a rough shifting in both the manual and automatic transmissions. Your vehicle will jerk when you are trying to downshift, or you might notice that the transmission acts as though it skipped a few gears. Sometimes, you might hear a loud clunking as your BMW shifts or the vehicle will drop significantly in speed, making for a very rough, unpredictable ride for your passengers. To add to your frustration, sometimes the dashboard warning light won’t notify you there’s a problem. The “Transmission Failure” light is supposed to come on to let you know it isn’t working correctly.

There are a number of reasons this could be happening. The most obvious issue is that the transmission could be failing, or your BMW may be low on transmission fluid. In some cases, the problem could be with your vehicle’s computer and you might need it to be reset. A qualified BMW repair technician at Bavarian Rennsport can download new software and fix your car, or it may require a more detailed repair job.

If you want your transmissions to last for a long time, it requires quite a bit of care and attention. Since the BMW F10 5-series isn’t that old, there could be a problem associated with the manufacturer, which we can help determine for you. If your vehicle displays any of these symptoms, drive to a BMW service garage like Bavarian Rennsport to have us inspect and properly repair the vehicle before it becomes something very serious.
