hi, i am not sure if this is a safety defect or not. i had a sound like an expanding and contracting of metal in the back underneath of car. it sounded like a cookie sheet when it is first heating up in the oven and it expands and contracts. the dealer couldn't find anything when i brought it in but said that they were going to call bmw technical support because they had a theory that a spider was clogging up the fuel line and that this had happened once before to their knowledge and resulted in the gas tank collapsing. i brought car in again and they said they removed a spider and put in a new pipe/line. the sound i had heard before was gone. some people have told me, however, that the whole system is a closed system and that this couldn't have happened. is it possible? is problem fixed?

the vehicle stalls while in motion. purchased an x5 in december 2002. prior to reaching 400 total miles, the car stalled twice while in motion, thus causing all electrical systems to fail. the dealer reported the problem solved. last week, while driving at 25 mph through the ez pass lanes on the pa turnpike, the car stalled, once again losing power while in motion. luckily, no one was behind me as they would have certainly rear ended my vehicle. i took the car to the dealer and they acknowledged that another customer had this problem. i dropped the car off on friday, september 24, 2004, the dealer has yet to diagnose this recurring problem.*ak
