2018 530e - Gearbox slipping?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

My first post - will spend some time exploring and hopefully become a regular viewer.

 

over the last couple of days my gearbox appears to be playing up.

 

i have a 2018 530e with 12k miles. On all occasions it has been driving in sport mode.

 

first time was when going from drive to reverse to park at home and the car felt like it made a Big Bang before going into gear.

 

today on 3 occasions it seemed to struggle when stationary changing gear - once mid way on a roundabout!

 

not had it happen in comfort mode as yet.

 

any one else had the issue? Dealer visit needed?

 

thanks 

paul

At the very least you need a dealer visit to see if any fault codes have been generated.

still under warranty presumably so no reason to hold back.

Could this be anything to do with you driving in Electric and then the gearbox kicking in an speed when cold? 
 

or is this me thinking in an old fashioned way?

No I don’t think so, was very odd and out the blue on all occasions. I had been driving in sport to save the battery for the cold mornings (I know not the idea!).

 

on one occasion I thought stuck on something as just reving but not going anywhere even though gear selected. Il
