Jerky Brakes

Asked by Sep 22, 2007 at 09:13 AM about the 2006 BMW 5 Series 550i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

3 Answers

Though I love the power of my 2006 550, I hate the way the brakes stop the car. It is very hard to stop without a real bouncy feel. I talked with the dealership and they say this is normal, because of the higher rev of the 550. I had another 545 and it did not do this. It does not seem normal. Anyone experience this?

maby difference in antilock or break pads.


Its better if you go to check the electronics.BMW's have some problems with that.
