Need Advice for a BMW X5, Lots of Issues...

Hello Everyone,

I am posting this because I have a 2008 BMW X5 that has gone into the dealership for multiple problems! To date from the date of purchase I've had 5 problems with this vehicle. At this time I have lost the confidence in driving a BMW, and not only that but the amount of money I paid for a fully loaded X5 I would expect better quality than something made in china as it seems...

My goal is to get BMW Canada to either upgrade me to a new BMW or replace my current vehicle.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Also, I have a few friends that actually own the same year of X5's and they haven't had any problems at all... maybe I got a lemon?

Oh and lastly, the most serious incident was when the electronically controlled e-brake engaged and the whole ECU had to be wiped cleaned and re-programmed. Plus, they sent me a normal tow trunk, not a flat bed!

Sorry for the rant... but any suggestion is aprpeciated. I'm not too pleased right now with BMW products at all.
