  • M5 Sedan
  • M8 Convertible and Coupe

  • X3 M, X4 M, X5 M, X6 M 
  • 3 Series Sedan

Consumer Complaints

Drivers report that problems with transfer cases may manifest in shuddering or jerking when driving at low speeds, especially when accelerating or turning.

Costly Repair

BMW owners may have to pay out of pocket for testing to determine if their car has a problem with the transfer case or pay to replace the oil in it.  Further, owners may have to pay to replace transfer cases if their cars are out of warranty.  According to reports, the cost to replace a transfer case could exceed $6,000.
