Beware the lemon in year 5+

Bought this 2018 X5 plug-in hybrid in Feb 2023 with 13750 miles, by January 2024 it had 4 major repairs and was not drivable totaling $10K out of pocket in my first year of used car ownership. The electric parking break module, windshield washer pump, rear air suspension and topped off with transmission issues at 36700 miles were the defects. The transmission issue would have been in warranty except for age. BMW North America offers to pay for $2200 in parts but left me to pay the $3K in labor acknowledging the car was not right but not fully standing behind its reliability. Traded it in at a huge loss as the final issues had potential to lead to reduced compressor life and more transmission issues. Very disappointed as I loved the car but could not stomach nearly $1K a month etc cost of ownership. Probably would have stuck with it if BMW stood behind it, but….
