BMW X3 -2011
Love this tank! We were turned on to BMW with a purchase of a 2006 BMW 325i a few years back but it had engine issues that were beyound our budge to fix (it had a prior accident prior to our purchase). Went to the BMW dealership & traded that one in on a used BMW X3. Love it! We live in Florida & make a TON of trips to Pennsylvania for work. This has been great on the gas (25.+ mph) for an SUV.

Repairs- Recently and only had to have PCV valve/cover cracked (which apparently is common) repaired, motor mount bolt recall & motor mount replacement. We are at 99,000+ miles & it runs beautifully. Minus a few interior door material recommendations for BMW & a minor LED dash issue (only happens w/ high heat & extreme cold)- we enjoy driving this car. Acceleration and stopping is NOT an issue; we keep the maintenance up & look forward to adding another Beemer to our family in the next year or so!

Pros
good gas mileage for SUV, fun to drive, acceleration is a must for me! great interior leg room in the back (have tall family members)

Cons
interior door handle is not holding up well in Florida heat. LED small dash will turn on & off if it's above 90+ or below 30+ (occasionally) but doesn't effect whole dash (known BMW issue)

Works perfectly. Drives precisely. Balanced. Steady. Comfortable. Powerful when I need. Smooth for long trips. Dependable. Have had no breakdowns or problems whatsoever.
When this wares out, if it does I will get the same. Has 4 wheel drive when I need. Space for people (5) or bicycle or baggage. Fast when needed on freeways. AC good. Air window on top comfortable. Good vision at night.

Pros
Quality. Appearance. Steady was. Dependability.

Cons
Software needs updating to work with new iPhones.

2011 BMW X3 is fun SUV to drive, but repair cost makes this to one to really think whether you should of stayed with a 2010 or purchase a 2012 of later model.

Pros
Car handles very nice for a SUV.

Cons
Starter and Engine crankshaft/bearing problem at 99000 miles. A used engine was installed rather than to repair the crankshaft and bearings. LED rear tail lights problems. The LED light board cannot be purchased separately. Luckily the used car dealer had older boards spares to swap out rather than buying an entire light assembly. This reinforces the premise to not purchase the first model year.

Windsheer
Overall decent vehicle but overpriced when compared to non German brand SUV. Somewhat disappointed in ride with handling an issue in stronger winds. No measurable gain using high test gasoline vs mid grade

Pros
When wind not high good handling with nice features for 2011 vehicle. Relatively comfortable for S UV

Cons
Wind sheer issues; paint easily chips more then any vehicle I have ever owned; require/recommend high test gas-90 octane
