Brake Problems

Stopping a vehicle and controlling the speed are both aspects that must operate as intended, but that’s not the case with the 2022 BMW X4.

One NHTSA complaint reads, “Consumer writes in regards to defective brakes. The consumer stated the vehicle lunges, rocks and jerks when the brakes were applied. The vehicle was road tested, the lunges were acknowledged, but the dealer stated the vehicle was operating as designed. The manufacturer was notified and stated the vehicle operated as designed.”

Along with the brakes, there’s another serious issue occurring that needs to be looked at. NHTSA Campaign Number 22V070000 talks about how the mechatronics in the transmission might not have been put together right, leading to an internal leak. This leak can cause the vehicle to rollaway, leaving owners watching their precious investment slipping out of their hands. It’s difficult to “conquer the road ahead” if it’s impossible to keep the luxury vehicle where it belongs.

Problems with the Structure

It doesn’t seem that the BMW X4 was put together the way it was intended. It has left a lot to be desired.

Even Car and Driver has stated, “the X4’s compromised rear seat and cargo area may make buyers think twice.”

While this might seem like a silly point, there are a lot of minor issues that are illustrating the level of quality that can be expected with the X4. NHTSA Campaign Number 21V831000 talks about how the license plate wasn’t even illuminated correctly, causing confusion that could lead to an accident. If a luxury automaker, such as BMW, can’t even get this aspect correct, what else is missing from the build? Smart consumers aren’t going to stick around to find out.
