Not so reliable by chloe on 12/04/2006. Trim: 2005 BMW X3 3.0i, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Good size, drives well in the snow, good seating position, controlled steering
Cons: Not very reliable and service technicians can't seem to fix the vehicle without a bulletin or assistance from BMW engineers. Major quality issues, including replacement of belt tensioner and pulley (twice) and parking brake, mold/mildew problems in A/C at 8000 miles, transmission reprogrammed, numerous rattles, hatch had to be realigned, airbag mat replaced, botched "free" oil change so oil leaked everywhere. Vehicle only has 12,000 miles and has been in the shop 40+ days in 10 months. It had to be towed three weeks ago because it wouldn't start, and still don't have it back. The only explanation the dealership has is that it may have been bad gas.
Overall review: Beautiful vehicle when I have it. For $41,000 you would expect better.
