BMW X3 vs. Audi Reliability Comparisons

You won't find BMW X3 or Audi reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots, to make it clear how much the BMW X3 and the Audi truly differ in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track BMW X3 and Audi reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the BMW X3 and the Audi were a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the BMW X3 and the Audi have been recently.
