BMW X1 - 2022

I recently purchased a new BMW X1 2022 from Essendon BMW and had an excellent experience. The salesperson, Nicole,Toni, Louis were very knowledgeable and helpful in finding the perfect car for me. They were very patient and understanding of my needs. The overall process was smooth and stress-free. I also appreciated the thorough explanation of all the features and functions of my BMW X1 before I left the dealership. Overall, I highly recommend Essendon BMW dealership to anyone in the market for a new BMW. Show details

Too much of road & tyre noise inside cabin. Defeats the drive

I am surprised to see that none of the owners have noticed the road noise inside the cabin just when crossing 65 KMPH on any road + highways. If you take a drive to GC from City, you are sure to come out deaf due to the amount of road noise inside the cabin. It's a great car, drives great but the noise inside the cabin kills the drive. Absolutely no insulation provided for speeds over 65 kmph. Show details

Sensor problems under 95,000 km

I bought a 2015 BMWX one diesel version and facing problem with the oil indicator which is showing faulty and BMW people said that’s out of the warranty but it’s only 95,000 km so I don’t think it’s a quality product. 95,000 km where is other brand is giving unlimited kilometres for seven years and this is under five years under 95,000 km. So called top brands don’t have trust on their quality. And from the beginning to till now it’s only been to BMW for servicing and all the works. Show details

Love it

The one thing I love above all else with this car is the lack of cabin noise. It is so quiet and drives like a dream. Plenty of room and perfect for work and the family. Show details

2016 X1 18d - best in its class (and price range)

This car has a stunning appearance and the drive is brilliant. Taking into account the price, i.e lower than an X3 and Mercs this is is worth a test drive.
Keep in mind that because it is alot cheaper than an X5 it does not have a premium feel like an X5 however it is certainly a better drive than Mazda and Hyundai's similar size vehicles, including top of the range Mazdas which have a similar price tag. Show details

Great car

Car hasn't had any problem so far apart from idrive screen shutting off which was easily fixed with the software update, car is very reliable and perfect for daily use. Highly recommend the X1. Show details

Someone had a problem with EVAP system ? ( I got this problem with a BMW X1 25E, where I couldn't fill fuel because the pressure of tank didn't allow to the gasoline to enter in the tank. Service had to change the Control Unit after 4 days of research )

Have a X1 2017 F48 - has anyone had PCV failures that have lead to turbo replacement. Was there any recall international

Noticed many commenting have almost brand new cars, does anyone have one passed say 150,000k's as our last BMW X3 like VW died at 76,000k's so was appalling, all our other Japenese cars lasted beyond 300,00k's with just battry replacement & cheap servicing. Most reviews are based on a brand new vehicle which of course shouldn't have any issues lol. Would be good to know if Euro's have improved regarding reliability.
