Exclamation Recall: 2009-2012 BMW X5 35d

BMW has issued a recall on 2009-2012 X5 35d for a power steering issue. An engine part could break and causes loss of power steering.

Our bolt broke last month and it was replaced. I wonder if they I'll need to take it back (i.e., they've designed or spec'd a different bolt). I guess I'll wait to get an official notification....

Just had mine done while I took my X5d in for warped front brakes at 5500 miles.

I can't believe this. The dealership didn't tighten my belt enough that when I start my engine, the belt squeals. What sucks even more is I don't have time to take it because they are so busy. I so dislike Charleston BMW......
