2013 BMW X1 SUV xDrive28i 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

I've had my 28iXdrive for 14 months. This is my daily driver and outside 24/7. It's a small car, but good for me and my 22 mile daily commute in Chicago Winters. Mine had the heated seats and steering wheel, a must have for cold weather. The steering is so tight and precise. The acceleration of this twin turbo, blows me away, and it just keeps on going. Excellent handling car, firm suspension. I haven't had any problems at all. Mine retailed over $38k


Favorite Features

Heated seats, heated steering, twin turbos, suspension


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable seats.

2013 BMW X1 SUV xDrive28i 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

I have a 2013 X1 x28i Overall its a lot of fun to drive both acceleration and handling. It is not really a SUV so if you are expecting a lot of space in the back, you have to put the seats down (which is a bit of a hassle) It has room for 4 passengers (can do 5 in a pinch) but can't do luggage for 4 I have had good gas mileage (high 20's) and good reliability THere are some design features that are engineered not designed (cup holder is added on) but overall a good car


Favorite Features

Performance Acceleration Handling Great sound system (I have the Harmon Kardon) Comfortable for driver and passenger Good gas mileage given performance


Suggested Improvements

better cup holder A smoother start-stop system (the 3 series does it much better) Some options should be standard (HID lights) Can be expensive

2013 BMW X1 SUV sDrive28i 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Overall, the car is a realy joy to drive, but we've had some major mechanical issues. Less than 15,000, and we've already had it in the shop twice for cylinder replacemets, once for failure of the catalytic converter, and now for a transmission failure. All within 6 months. We'll see how the BMW dealer chooses to help rectify, but so far not happy with the build quality.


Favorite Features

Typical BMW driving dynamics, which is to say it's a graet car to drive every day. Handling is great, fuel economy is pretty good, engine has plenty of power for it's size. But quality issues so far have detracted from it's positives thus far.


Suggested Improvements

Mechanical quality has so far been an issue. Hard to really enjoy a car when you can't trust it to not break down every two months.

Review

The X1 is a very solid, high performing compact SUV (or SAV as BMW calls it). The performance, corning and high quality interior are all amazing. The car has lots of power. I only have 3000 miles on the car so far but it handles very well and enjoy the many technology features on car including the numerous I drive features.

Review

Have had our 2013 X1 since middle of May 2013. In less than 800 miles brakes failed. Again, the same problem at 1900 miles. Seems short on power and acceleration. Not very pleased and hope to trade up very soon to an X3. Would not recommend this vehicle base on my experience.


Favorite Features

Nice design interior and exterior.


Suggested Improvements

Find out why power brakes fail in less than 2000 miles.
