First released in model year 2010, the latest models of the BMW F-10 Five-Series include the Sedan, xDrive and Wagon/Touring variations as well as some hybrids and a high-performance M-5. These are the most technologically-advanced Bimmers to ever hit the luxury car market. But with so many bells and whistles, and the series still being relatively new, there are bound to be a few bugs or common problems which are just now becoming evident. Here is a list of some of the known problems inherent in some models of the BMW f-10 5-series:
Throttle Response/Hesitation: Some drivers have complained of a lag, or hesitation when they press the gas pedal and the engine does not respond. They have to press the pedal hard before the car moves, and it usually surges forward from a stop.
Jerking/Steering Issues: In early year models of the F-10 the cars sometimes veer to the right. This could be an alignment issue, but it primarily affects vehicles with electric-steering rather than hydraulic-steering so it could also be an electronic malfunction.
Transmission Issues: Another complaint by F-10 owners is rough shifting or loose shifting. Their Bimmers will shake during downshifting or it may feel like it slipped a few gears.
Drivetrain Malfunction: A sporadic loss of power and sluggish engine performance has been noted by some Bimmer owners.
If your BMW is experiencing any of these problems, contact a local German Auto service garage to perform a diagnostic test on the vehicle. There could be a variety of causes that these experts will be able to properly identify and repair.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
I left the dealership and other local vendors in the area. I won’t be looking back, because of low cost and BMW certified Techs that care about their work. These are the best professionals in town to service your vehicle.
For years my wedding ring has done its job as being the sparkle in my eye until my husband surprised me with a fully built Z4M. Bavarian did an over the top job building me a daily driver that is also great for track days. Now I can race with my husband rather than just watch
You guys do great work and have good prices very much appreciated thank you guys for everything
I must say Bavarian is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville. After spending several hundreds of dollars at the BMW Dealership my problem with my vacuum lines kept coming back. The BMW Guys found the issue added a new clamp and solved the problem. These guys know their BMWs.
