2021 X5 45e Safety feature

When the auto steering is on, the car jerks around unexpectedly sometimes especially when you enter the highway as if it lost the exact line of the road and then try to over react to recover. It is enough to freak out my wife and she want me to complain to BMW. Does this happen to you? I know auto steering isn't the best part of X5 but why does it happen and can BMW fix it?

Cheers!

If turned on (enabled), the X5 will try to keep you in lane. Crossing a lane marker without using your turn signals will cause the vehicle to try to return to the center of the lane. So, a couple of potential things:
- the lane markings are kind of obstructed and it can't literally tell where it is
- she's touching or crossing a lane marker and not using the turn signals (an unfortunately common practice, that's also illegal).

Actually the "auto steering" is part of the cruise system (cruise with steering and lane control) and it works excellent and wouldn't be involved when entering a highway. What you seem to be describing is the steering intervention option of the lane keeping system. Set it to "Early" and you should see a difference in performance.
