I'm surprised by that, since the X5 is manufactured in Spartanburg USA - I would think the US manufactured X5 would be the ones with quality problems. We loved our Japanese made '88 Honda Accord a long time ago and got another one right after (200MY) - but I didn't know they switched to manufacturing in South Carolina and subsequently, our last Honda was horrible, it was like driving a domestic! That's my biggest fear about the latest generation X3s - they've switched to the same plant as the X5.
