I have had my 2015 X3 28d for just under a year now. Two weeks after bringing it home there was a central control that failed and needed to be replaced. That required the dealership having my car for over 4 weeks. Most recently I took the car in for its first servicing (oil change). At the same time the dealership attempted to update some programming. They ran into problems and ended up having to replace the power steering rack, again my car with the dealer for two weeks. Given the car is less than one year old and with only 10K km, I would not expect so many problems. This compounded by the difficulty I have had with the dealership is why I am giving an overall 3 star rating. This is my first BMW product and will be my last.

X3 vs GLK

by from Overseas on April 6, 2015

Good price. I had a GLK with spare tire and X3 has run flats, the GLK had more storage space what happened? Gave up 28 HP from GLK (268) to X3 (240) and you can really tell. X3 lift gate does NOT clos...
Good price. I had a GLK with spare tire and X3 has run flats, the GLK had more storage space what happened? Gave up 28 HP from GLK (268) to X3 (240) and you can really tell. X3 lift gate does NOT close with key or from drivers door, the GLK did. Do like the stero system better on the X3. Speedometer layout in GLK was much better. If I had it to do again not sure if I would have bought the X3.

Very sporty and fun to drive

by from Punta Gorda Florida on March 23, 2015

First BMW we have owned enjoying the experience. Many nice features the X-drive28i is state of the art. Takes a little time to learn but worth the effort

I purchased this car in June 2015 and drove it on several long summer trips. The car handled beautifully and rides quietly. The 2.0 turbo charged engine provides plenty of power. I found the ride comfortable. The car holds the road and makes driving fun. So far I haven't experienced any mechanical or electrical issues. It has a great sound system. It took several months to master all the electronic features but well worth it. If you live in a cold climate I strongly suggest purchasing the cold weather package. There is nothing like heated seats and steering wheel on a cold winter's day. I love the car exterior styling. The only draw back is the small rear windows makes it a bit more difficult when backing the vehicle. I would buy this car again and again.

Most exciting drive

We bought the 2015 X3 xDrive diesel version as we were looking for better mileage than our current vehicles. This is our first diesel and first BMW car and we are very happy with it. Good features , very useful and good economy -- We drive lots of highway miles-- X3 Diesel gives 35 MPG. We traded an Acura MDX which did give good service but BMW is more exciting to drive and very catchy exterior. The other vehicle we looked at was Lexus Rx 450 -- a hybrid. BMW offers free service for 4 years and that is another big benefit --

Not thoroughly impressed

My wife compared the new X3 to Lexus and the Mercedes GLA250 and went with the X3 due to a competitive price, needless to say, she is not thrilled with it. It looks nice from the exterior and is just the right size for her and our two children but the ride is uncomfortable and is under-powered. We have had minor problems with it, and nothing BMW didn't pick up the cost for but with such a new vehicle I would have expected not to have any hiccups till around 50k miles. We did a 2 year lease and will be going in a different direction next time around.

Trying to decide on a vehicle in this class started out as a daunting task, that then became very simple once we drove the BMW X3 35i Msport. It stood out head and shoulder above the competition in this class. Truly and experience each time you get behind the wheel.

At 50,000 km vehicle has been flawless. Don't care for the run flat tires. Wish I had ordered the sport seats for better lateral support and seat bottom extension. Really like headsup display, handling, engine transmission match, fuel economy, styling.

I have just recently purchased my X3. I have found the ride to be very comfortable with more than enough power and pick up. Gas mileage is quit a bit better the MDX I was previously driving. The car has a lot of technology which at first can be confusing, but it just takes time to become familiar with it all.

BMW Fan
