X5 vs. MDX 2001 model year recalls:

You can look up the safety recalls that have occurred for both vehicles (model year 2001) listed at the NHTSA web site ( ). Whilst the MDX has had no safety recalls, the list of safety recalls for the X5 is so long that the web page reads, "Due to the large number of records returned from the Recalls database, we did not display Defect Summary, Consequence Summary and Corrective Summary description."

In 1989 I purchased a new 735 iL which I owned for 5 years. I had more problems with that car than with all the other vehicles that I have ever owned over the years combined - and I've owned Ford. So I'm not at all surprised by the long list of recalls for the X5; reminds me of the cliche "the more things change the more they say the same".

If you look up the TSBs (NHTSA's web site) for the 1989 735 iL (the model I owned), you will find too many TSBs to count. There must be over 100! .:eek:

Holy cow!:eek:

well look at it this way. BMW's quality has improved significantly since 1989.;)

reminds me of plenty of old jokes- what does BMW stand for?
hey dale, can u pull up info on newer Bimmers? how about the new 3 series. I am trying to figure out how much BMW's quality has improved over the last decade.

thanks in advance and GREAT LINK!
