A versatile performance SUV

published

We owned our X3 30i M sport for three years (70K). Fully equipped this vehicle is really outstanding. During the time we drove this vehicle we had no issues - it was extremely reliable and very comfortable. The engine was responsive and the driving experience was really excellent. Recommend this car to anyone. Recently bought another BMW X3 this time the M40i - hoping this car will provide as good an experience as the 30i.

Purchased in at BMW Dealers for $87,000.

Disappointed for the quality

After only two weeks. Started to have problems. 1, The cargo cover can't be retracted. 2, Squeaky noise when turning the steering wheel. All these problems did not happen to my 4 years Subaru.

Poor quality, Poor service

published

I bought x3 in Jun 2017, and I had very first service last year Nov at BMW service in Sydney.
From service they found the air conditioner was not working well. and they said that the part needed to be ordered and it would take for ten days.
But no update for 3 weeks and I called them and they said take another 10 more day .
Now I am waiting for it 2 months, still no update , no calls no email nothing.
I don’t know how long do I have to drive this car with not working aircon in such a hot Summer. Not happy with such a lower standard service from BMW.

Purchased in at BMW Dealers for $73,000.
