Reliability and Durability of the BMW X3: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Not a single issue in over three years of ownership. SA at BMW store stated X3s have much fewer problems than most other BMW vehicles.
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
not lots of gizmos and trinkets to break - interior simple and well made - even at high mileage it looks new! switches, buttons all high quality
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Iíve only encountered the most minor problems Ė a bad airbag sensor in a seat and a bad Sirius radio tuner. Otherwise, itís been problem-free driving for almost 30K miles.
Reliability and Durability of the BMW X3: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Ride qualities have necessitated two visits to the dealership along with one two-night stay in the first month of ownership. The tailgate latch has begun to stick where it will neither open or close completely.
2008 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
After a long trip, a downshift in the driveway from 2nd to 1st was missed accompanied by slippage and loud noises. In test drive around the neighborhood it continued. Next morning was ok. Dealer unable to find any computer log of event.
2004 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed manual AWD
Frequent expensive repairs from past experiance
