Driving at 40mph an alert error for steering and braking warning came up and stalled the car to zero mph. A review of other internet complaints on bmw owners was similar. Why is this not a recall?
It had been raining in my area the week of 4/16/2021. On the evening of 4/16/2021 my rear hatch control and rear hatch alarm started malfunctioning. I discovered water had gotten into the electrical compartment in the rear hatch. I brought my suv to the shop/dealer for repair and was told the sunroof frame was cracked allowing water penetration from the headliner to the rear hatch causing the hatch control unit to malfunction. My vehicle has never been involved in an accident and i have never stored or transported anything on my roof. The repair shop/dealer was unable to offer a reason for what could have caused the sunroof frame to crack. The only explanation that makes sense is that the sunroof was either installed improperly by the manufacturer or the sunroof frame is defective. It was $4,298. 08 to repair the sunroof and control unit. This is most concerning as my suv is less than 5 years old, only has 81,448 miles and there is no recommended maintenance for the sunroof.
This is a new bmw x5 2 months old with 2000 miles. The vehicle was parked not running with no power in my garage. On saturday morning it spontaneously combusted into flames. I happened to be near the garage and spotted the flames 4-5 feet tall shooting out from hood. I immediately ran inside to ensure my family was exiting the house and we called 911. I attempted to extinguish the flames with a hose while waiting on the fire dept. They arrived and extinguished and cut all electrical power to the vehicle and winched it out of my garage. Very upsetting and disturbing that the new vehicle randomly burst into flames while sitting in garage.

My x5 was parked in my garage and started by itself while i was outside of my house with garage doors closed. I was able to stop the engine by using the bmw connected app. I did not have any scheduled or programmed start events. I called bmw corporate and was told to take the x5 to a dealer for a diagnostic scan which could not be scheduled for two days from now.
