We had traded in a Lexus LX570 for the BMW X7 and had a good experience with the dealer when placing the build. We've been overall pleased with the vehicle until a few weeks ago. We were parking the car going about 3 MPH, about 3 feet from the curb, when pressing the brakes again the car accelerated. We pressed the brakes again and the car accelerated even faster. The automatic braking didn't work and we ended up hitting a building. The driver assistant package should've applied the brakes avoiding the collision. Some other owners of the 2023 X7 posted that BMW has a software glitch with the Driver Assistant Package which ends up turning off the system BMW corporate sent an engineer to do an inspection on the vehicle. They didn't find anything and the black box indicated the vehicle was accelerating at the time of the crash. No surprise as this is what we stated from the time of the accident. Following the accident and doing a Google search, we found information on SUA (Sudden Unintended Acceleration). The auto industry seems to have an issue with this but they don't admit to it. We found posting by owners of different BMW models and years that express the same situation. Parking at a slow rate of speed, when the vehicle accelerated when pressing the brake and then accelerating even faster when pressing the brake again, ending up in an accident. We believe this is the case with our vehicle. Some articles indicate the SUA is caused by a computer error sending a message to the vehicle to accelerate when the driver is actually pressing the brakes. Additional articles question whether the black box records the correct information relating to this situation. We're looking to see what our options are, as we're concerned this may happen again and could results in a person being injured or worse.

Purchased a new BMW X7 in February 2023. Buying experience was very good. The problem is I’ve had in for service 5 times in 3 months. Three times was a faulty seat belt sensor. One time was the drive train locked up and I had to have it towed. Final time is another faulty sensor which is back ordered for a month. I love the car styling and it drives great but having to taken in for service 5 times is ridiculous. I will say the BMW service team is super friendly and helpful. I just wish I didn’t have to get to know them. So far BMW has not offered anything for my time and inconvenience. Probably will be my first and last BMW.
It's great very comfortable. It is like a new technology car I'm happy to drive a new car. I feel this is a great deal.
Best SUV I have leased so far. Drives like a car, seats are awesome. I have the M Sport options. Didint feel like waiting for the M60. Everything this SUV offers is top of the line and feels like it. The two bad things though, is the climate control system is part of the infotainment system. Very annoying to operate. You have to control everyting from the touch screen. The other bad thing is BMW's need to electrify the folding and moving of the 2nd and 3rd row. If its raining, youre pretty much standing in the rain for 30 seconds as the seats move around to let you in the third row. I have 22"'s and it rides pretty smooth, was expecting a harder ride.
A Fantastic Driving Machine
I purchased this car for my wife a few months ago now, and it has been a joy to own thus far. The car is very spacious (even for myself at 6'7" and 285 pounds) and carries our two children in the back without any distress due to the power function in the second row, something that doesn't always occur when I'm in the driver's seat of almost any other car. The seats are extremely comfortable, and it's both quiet in comfort mode and performs better than many would expect in sport mode, even as a 40i model with the 6-cylinder. While I prefer the pre-facelift X7 we owned before this one in terms of the front end, the rest of the car is an improvement without question.
Setting the standard for luxury and performance.
Interior styling and comfort are second to none. Quality of fit and finish is what you would expect from a German luxury vehicle. New screen and apps are all very intuitive and responsive. Voice activated assistant understands common commands and responds appropriately. Mild hybrid supports outstanding fuel mileage and range. Twin turbo is powerful and quick with no lag. This is the finest vehicle I have ever owned.
