On april 12, 2021 i was driving my 2021 bmw x3 and as i was pulling up into a parking stall, my vehicle accelerated on its own causing my vehicle to collide with a brick wall.
3 times today shortly after engaging cruise control and setting it to 75mph, the vehicle accelerated quickly to over 90mph and had to be manually disengaged. When this happened, i did not have my foot on the gas and didn't press any of the cruise control buttons except to disengage it when it dangerously accelerated on its own.
Vehicle has had the main driver gauges/dash cluster randomly turn off with no warning while driving, multiple times a day now for the last several months, with instances happening at all sorts of speeds and on local roads and highways. There appears to be no way to recover the electronic dash cluster until the vehicle is left to fully shut off for a few minutes and then restarted. Bmw service as well as bmwna have attempted to assist in 8+ service visits and have not been able to rectify what? S a clear safety hazard, as it has led to multiple near accidents now. This started in january 2020, when the vehicle was relatively new (<2000 miles) and persists to this day (12k miles).
MY 2016 BMW X5 E40 STALLED AND LOST ALL PROPULSION POWER MULTIPLE TIMES WHILE DRIVING IN TRAFFIC, THE FIRST TIME AT ABOUT 40 MPH AND THE SUBSEQUENT TIMES AT AROUND 25 MPH, FORCING ME TO DRIVE THE CAR ONTO THE SHOULDER AND TRY TO RESTART IT. THERE WAS NO INDICATION OF ANY KIND AND NO WARNING LIGHT GIVEN PRIOR TO THE STALLS, IT SIMPLY JUST LOST ALL PROPULSION POWER. WE WERE TRAVELING UPHILL ON A BUSY HIGHWAY IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE AND WERE FORTUNATE TO NOT BE IN AN ACCIDENT. AFTER THE STALL A WARNING INDICATOR MESSAGE INDICATED THAT THE AUTOMATIC START/STOP MALFUNCTIONED. THE CAR WILL EVENTUALLY RESTART AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES WITHOUT ANY WARNING INDICATOR AT ALL, AND THE PROBLEM WILL RANDOMLY REPEAT ITSELF WITHOUT WARNING. PROPULSION DOESN'T SLOWLY STOP, IT CUTS OUT COMPLETELY WITH NO WARNING. THE BMW SERVICE DEPARTMENT HAS INDICATED THAT THERE WAS A FAILURE INTERNAL TO THE TRANSMISSION. THIS CAR IS 5 YEARS OLD AND HAS 89,000 MILES ON IT.
Cruise control deactivates for no reason causing sudden deceleration. Occurs randomlyn during city and highway driving. This has been happening for months. Bmw dealer has recibrated the sensor and updated the software. No improvement.
