Great car - but expensive to maintain

Bought our X3 3.0d brand new in October 2014. Great car to drive, everything we wanted in a car. The diesel motor is an absolute cracker.

Only downside has been the after sales service. BMW are quick to take your money, but not interested in following up with problems (such as excessive waxing that they put in to the car for shipping).

We have just clocked up 40,000ks in ours, majority of it being freeway driving and have to get new brakes ($3,200) and new tyres ($4,100) from BMW. Personally think that's a bit quick to have to replace these items (the car is driven by my wife - certainly not driven hard).

Great car until something major goes wrong

My BMW X3 2011 was fantastic until it broke down with major engine failure, taking 2 months for BMW to source the parts and repair the vehicle. Customer service is severely lacking at BMW. It takes days for people to return phone calls, if they do at all.

BMW X3

I love the quality of this vehicle. It is very nice to drive. It is comfortable, well fitted out with quality seats and instrumentation. It looks good. The 2.0 litre diesel has lots of power and is very economical with an average of 5.5 litres per 100kms.
Styling. Fit out. Diesel power.

Excellent

A pleasure to drive and even though fuel prices are reasonable high, I just like going for a drive. Its a 4WD in the body of a sports car.
Not too big for just the two of us. The turbo diesel motor + 6 speed auto is a great combination!! My wife thinks it is cute.
Electric seats standard would be a nice touch. Show details

Excellent

We've purchased our X3 3.0si earlier this year, absolutely love it! Excellent performance and quality build as you expect from BMW, highly recommended.
Excellent performance and sporty handling. The X3 is very nimble on the road and not as bulky as its bigger brother X5 and yet very spacious interior. It has an excellent visibility compared with 3-series and other wagon. Very good value for money.

Excellent

I am not really into cars, but husband is, overall, its great car, but I am still looking forward to upgrade to X5.
Great car, handles very well with quick and sharp turn. Breaks responses well, accelerate pretty quickly. Love the comfort seats and really cant live without it (but paying extra thought, worth the penny). Very smooth driving, great performance.
The middle seat at the back row is impossible to seat for a long trip (guess its design to sit 4 only). Had problems with automatic reverse mirror, fixed it 3 times already but still having problem. People from BMW Sydney are great and willing to help. Dont like the radio as it doesnt show any track names if playing mp3.
