2017 BMW X3 Engine Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1497253
 Internal NHTSA #11129293
 ManufacurerBMW of North America, LLC
 Model Year2017
 File date12/09/18
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThree incidents of uncontrolled acceleration of engine, two while parking on city streets (april 30 and sept 12) and one when stopping at red light on city street (aug 1). Car was in drive and started revving unexpectedly and immediately went to over 7,000 rpm. I shifted to neutral and maintained brake. Revving stopped and returned to normal idling when i lifted foot from brake. Car was taken to bmw service for one parking incident and the incident while stopping at red light. Bmw mechanics were unable to find anything wrong with vehicle. For latest incident have contacted bmw north america and they will send an engineer from headquarters to check vehicle. Fortunately, no collision or accident occurred. However, i believe some drivers would have a problem dealing with sudden uncontrolled revving and indeed i am concerned about a repetition, especially in city or highway traffic.
