I'm thinking of buying an X1, and it has the same engine as the F56 I believe, the B46 2.0 liter gas engine.

Over on the Bimmerfest X1 forum, some are having hesitation issues off a dead stop. So I'm wondering if this is endemic to the 2.0 petrol engine and if there is any solution?

I dont think anyone on here has ever had hesitation issues with this engine.never read any complaints. Perhaps its the auto? There has been a well publicised bearing issue recall but nothing much other than at.

I have a manual gear box but no hesitation or issues at all with my B46.

Perhaps a good extended test drive of the X1 will give you the answers you are looking for...

Problem with the internet at times is that someone complains about something and then everyone else looks for a problem that they may never have even noticed before but now are now paranoid after reading about it ;)
