I've read/seen good things about the CX90. Hope it serves you guys better than the 35d in terms of reliability. Only Mazda experience we had was a 2007 turbo CX7 that we enjoyed. It needed timing chain work as the only major repair and that was covered under warranty. Forget the mileage.

I'll look into that flap and see what happens. Strange that this is so common after an EGR recall? Never had EGR codes before. My wife is over the idea that everything the dealer wants to repair is minimum $1500 anytime we take it in. Which is rarely... as with you I'm sure, I prefer to do my own repairs. But so much of this thing still has extended warranty coverage due to the emissions crap our first step is to take it in and hope it's something related to a covered part.

Really too bad as it gets good mileage, has good power, and looks great. Here it is in Big Bend country on our way down from the Mcdonald Observatory last week.

Man, you're making me miss ours. I've been looking at low mileage ones. If I could find someone to buy my e53 for a decent price I might take the plunge again, especially since I still have a bunch of leftover parts laying around. If your still under the emissions warranty I'd try to get the dealer to swap the secondary egr cooler. It seems to be a common enough issue, even with the recall part, the lead tech at BMW West called it immediately after seeing the codes but it was out of emissions warranty by like 2500 miles and they wouldn't even entertain helping me with it.

Thanks for the info/guidance. I'll take it in.

The other reason for selling it is that we want (almost need) an X7. I am 6'8" and our kids are sprouting like weeds so will be tall as well. Plus our parents are getting older and accompanying us on trips now (they drove their own cars out to West TX) and it would be more convenient/safer to have them in the car with us. So the X5 is making less sense.

We still have a few years until we have to worry about the kids being too big. I've not been in an X7 but I can say with complete confidence that the CX90 will not handle teenagers in the 3rd row.

Yeah, we went and loaded the family in an X7... unfortunately, it will not not be large enough either. It's "okay," and certainly better than an X5, CX90, XC90, Pallisade, etc... but just not quite what we'll need. We landed on a '21 Cadillac Escalade. Mostly because you could get it in a diesel. We'll have to wait for it to reach reasonable costs by our standards though.

I took the X5 in and they diag'd the code as the coolant changeover valve after the EGR. That jived with my research so proceeded on that course. Just replaced it yesterday and will see if that cures the intermittent CEL. Doing a bunch of other small reconditioning stuff (replacing sticky door handle pulls, seat back pocket problem, etc) as I think we are going to list it on Cars and Bids for S's and G's. We wish we would have done so with our E70 and they said they would have loved to have it but we balked at the no reserve.

Anyway, will update if the CEL comes back for anyone who Googles and stumbles on this thread.

The Escalades a very nice, and very pricey, a bit big for my tastes, my wife really wants one though. But she wanted a brand new car more and a new Escalade payment isnt something we wanted to live with.

I hope the changeover valve fixes it for you. I have a change over valve laying in my garage that never got installed because the EGR cooler replacement fixed the code.

I though about putting our 35d up on CnB but we had to get a new vehicle fairly quick because we were going on a long road trip and my wife's anxiety about the 35D was growing. Looking at the bid results I think we may have been able to get 2 or 3k over what we got from autonation but it wasn't worth the wait for us. I'll look out for yours, always fun watching an auction you have some connection to.

So just checking in. The changeover valve fixed our code. We've been prepping the car for sale. "De-kidding" it and the like. I think CsnBs is the definitely the way to go for these diesels. 2 of them just ran through and aren't as well optioned as ours, with higher mileage, not as well maintained, and went for $14.5k and $17.5k. We're hoping ours will bring $15k but am more optimistic about higher given those results.

We got 14k at autonation for ours with 120ish K IIRC. Of the ones I've seen go on CnB, some have been obviously abused or not well looked after. But it does speak volumes to the market setting the price. Regardless I've finally learned my lesson and I'm never again buying a BMW for a daily with a lot of miles. The engineers in Munich seem to know exactly how to make the lifetime of the car 99,999 miles.
