Many love the brand for the excellent drive and the sporty image BMW gives the owners. However as many knows, BMW are plagued with many common problems that at time causes a bit of headache for their owners. Returning to the distributor after the warranty coverage for troubleshooting and repair is one expensive option and many were deterred by the high quotation provided by the distributor.

One of the most common fault is Gearbox failure. These problems come in many forms but the common ones are,

  1. Hard jerk before coming to a complete stop
  2. Error fault message on iDrive and gearbox locked and limited at a certain speed
  3. Unable to start car with a Gearbox failure message
  4. Irregular up-shift down shift of gears.
  5. Loss of power

These fault affects all models across the model range manufactured from 2005 ~ 2010, especially the E-series model. We seen a few F-series reporting with similar fault but the numbers are not significant now.
