      Good generic review but unfortunately another one where the reviewer has just accepted the manufacturers stats and presented them as gospel. I think all reviewers have a responsibility to test the actual fuel consumption (easily done from the gauges) because most mfrs quoted consumption figures are generous by about 20 pct.

      My brand new X3M40i was dropped off at Macarthur BMW on the 22nd of November, for a major warranty fault, concerning an extremely high pitched screeching noise, ONLY when cold. This was almost 4 weeks ago. It was then discovered, through my BMW tracking app, my X3 was subsequently taken home by a mechanic for a 181km weekend joyride, with his wife and daughter, with registered visits at 2 different McDonalds and parked a local shopping centre over the weekend. The GM, Jorge Lamas, and Service Manager were immediately notified and questioned via phone and email. This weekend joyride was done without my consent and with no plausible reason give. Extremely dishonest dealership and very unprofessional.

      The ride quality of the X3 is quite poor and much worse than my Tiguan.

      This X3 had never been EUROPE popular SUV compare to GLC , XC60 and Q5

      BMW exterior design looks boring and old fashion. Not premium at all and will never be

      BMW X3 is not premium at all and the exterior still looks dated.

      GLC and XC60 exterior looks way better and premium.

      I have X5 made in SC. quality is TOTAL DISASTER. they cannot even make DOOR HANDLES. Material disintergrates and my X5 handles are gluey and have to be replaced. I will NEVER EVER GET A GERMAN CAR. Only Lexus for me. BMW quality SUCKS! My X5 transmission disntegrated at 190Kmiles because I FOLLOWED BMW/ZF recommendation of LIFETIME OIL. Soon later engine - where I replaced oil meticulously broke down ENTIRELY. I have a toyota with 2x miles. NO ISSUES AT ALL. BMW quality esp quality of materials and general engineering is DISASTER. FYI. TO TOW the car u need special red 'hammer' tool to disengage transmissionm into NEUTRAL to pull it on a truck. SAME THING in a Camry requires a PUSH of a button no special WEIRD IDIOT ENIGNEERING red hammers easy to lose. I will not mention the insane problems with getting parts for fuel pump recall forced on them by NHTSA. BMW dealers and BMW corporate had me stranded in California without parts for MONTHS. NO refund for all tows and hassles. TOTAL DISASTER COMPANY. Never again BMW

      All the X series are excellent, including the X4 and X6 if you are not into boxy cars.
