Money pit.
Car handles great ! That said , I would never buy another BMW again!
I own a 2013 BMW X3. Bought from a BMW dealership .
At 81,000 miles the plastic timing chain guides broke and destroyed the engine.
BMW dealer and BMW of North America were contacted and refused to do anything.
Joined class action law suit brought by BMW X3 owners who’s engines were destroyed by the same effective chain guides.
They just settled without admitting liability!
Not the Ultimate Driving Machine !
Not the ultimate Care or Service!
BMW has no honestly ! They market their ultimate service but leave you on the side of the road with an expensive piece of junk .
Do yourself a favor , buy a fully loaded Toyota !
Get rock solid reliability and take the extra money you would have spent on repairs and take several vacations !

Pros
Great ride , when it works !

Cons
No reliability.
BMW won’t deal with obvious mechanical defects !
BMW will not stand by their product !

Energetic performance combined with good fuel efficiency
This is a comfortable car that handles well, gets good gas mileage, but has plenty of power. Sufficient room in both the front seat, back seat, and luggage area. Good performance while achieving very good gas mileage. The only negative is the high cost of repairs on German automobiles.

Pros
Acceleration. Handling. Versatility. Build quality. Fuel efficiency.

Cons
Costly upkeep and repairs. More expensive than some competitors.

A nice luxury car that BMW doesn't care about.
The 2013 BMW X3 is a nice, comfortable, stable SUV. However, BMW is still building engines that don't last. My car has the 2.0l Turbo engine. Due to broken timing chain guides the engine was replaced under Warranty at 83,000 miles. Now, here I am at 112,000 mi and I'm getting the same dash warnings again. "DRIVETRAIN MALFUNCTION - DRIVE MODERATELY". But the vehicle info menu item doesn't give any information, whatsoever, as to what's going on. So, I returned to Bill Pierce BMW in Reno, NV and they tried to sell me over $5,000 worth of repairs that weren't needed. It was simply a loose vacuum hose. Something that should have been changed during the engine replacement, but wasn't. If you buy one of these cars with a 4 cyl. Turbo, make sure you get an extended warranty!

Pros
Great in snow & ice with proper winter tires.

Cons
Poor engine reliability

The BMW is over priced and they have oil leaks from day 1. They have no resale value. Its just a name. The resale of the BMW drops about 70% after 4 years. The vehicles are a money pit. They stay in the shop.

Pros
Great ride

Not reliable

The top line X3 is a blast to drive. 5 years and counting... Can’t say that about any other car I’ve owned. It’s super sporty even when it isn’t in sport mode. White on black looks best. You have to pay to play so don’t expect it to be inexpensive. Ha

Pros
Hot

Cons
Not much storage space for the driver.

2013 X3 6 cylinder.
This is my first computer controlled vehicle. After two years I understand 75 percent of it. The car in general is a good drive with all the power you will ever need. My Wife loves to ride in it so what else would a guy need. After buying two speed sensors at $180 each I’m wary of the future expenses.

BMW X3
This is our second X3, and it's the 3.5 version with the M package. We owned a first-gen model and replaced it with this one. this one is superior in every way to its predecessor - power, handling, fuel economy, comfort, controls, etc. This may look like a compact SUV, but it's really just a tall, AWD sports car boasting spirited driving characteristics, brisk acceleration and all-weather utility. We've driven this car locally and across country, at sea level, at 12,000 feet in the mountains, and in all types of weather. In all situations, it has distinguished itself as a reliable, fun, confidence-instilling vehicle, which is also attractive and enjoyable to own.

Pros
Reliable, fun-to-drive, quick, nimble, comfortable and confidence-instilling

Cons
If you're over 6 feet tall, the driver's seat can be uncomfortable after a few hours in the saddle, requiring a quick stretch and a walk around.

Great Experience!
Bought a 2013 BMW X3 from Jeremy and the entire process, from selection to pick-up, was great. Very fair pricing, everyone (sales and service) worked to insure I was happy with my purchase. Would definitely buy there again and will recommend to others!

Thanks!

Pros
It's a BMW, they really do make the Ultimate Driving Machine!

Cons
None really

Comfortable ride
Both the driver and passengers experience a very comfortable ride. The a/c does not deliver sufficient cooling.

Fun and Reliable SUV that Handles like a sprots car
X3 is fun to drive, especially in Sports mode. The SUV is reliable, handles well in all kinds of weather and have been very reliable over the course of 3 years. Interior is very comfortable and has required very little maintenance. Only issue is the life and replacement of the run-flat tires. Would also be nice to be able to close rear hatch with the remote control key.

Pros
BMW Sports handling
Performance and reliability
Styling and comfort, excellent controls

Cons
Run-flat tires wear out quickly and cannot be patched
Automatic tail gate cannot be closed by key fob.
