The Fourth Generation BMW X5 (G05/G18) has been produced since 2018 and continues to solidify BMW's position in the luxury mid-size SUV segment. The X5 G05 offers a range of engine options, including petrol, diesel and hybrid variants, delivering a blend of performance and fuel efficiency. It delivers a sporty and engaging driving experience, combining precise handling with a comfortable ride. Some common issues to look out for include:
Steering Glitches: Some owners have complained about their X5 pulling to one side of the road while driving. Usually this occurs when the vehicle is cold, so warming it up may help.
Transmission Issues: Erratic transmission issues have been experienced, including rough shifting, delayed shifts and jerky steering.
iDrive Failures: These problems include failing to connect, climate control issues, random reboots, etc. Generally a software upgrade fixes these issues.
Air Conditioning System Faults: Some owners have noticed a lack of cool air blowing or an inconsistent air temperature. Have your G05 inspected by a qualified BMW repair mechanic to see if the compressor needs replacing.
