I own 2001 BMW X5 which was purchased in November 2007 as a used vehicle. I have been experiencing a serious problem with my front doors freezing in the winter. This is my 3rd winter that my 2001 x5 door locks are frozen in sub zero temperature. In cold weather the doors freeze up not allowing access in or out of the vehicle. I have had to crawl through the rear doors to get in/out of the vehicle. This has happened numerous times and creates a real hazard as you cannot exit the vehicle quickly. Also the latch freezes and will not allow the door to close so the door can fly open while driving. I have done some reading on internet and this is a recurring problem for many drivers. I think this is a serious safety issue when an accident does occur (hard to escape). I am shocked that this dangerous problem has not been addressed by BMW. I would like to have this investigated by Transport Canada. Anybody in Canada experiencing same problem…please respond and e-mail Transport Canada. They need more people addressing this issue.
