My new X3....Next time, maybe I will buy a Hyundai
By cww125 on
2011 BMW X3 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
I would like to know why I could go purchase a $14K Hyundai w/ less problems than I have in my $55K X3....
1.Cup holder Has a broken spring mechanism
2.Heater button When pushed, it went into the bottom of the center counsel.
3.Gas cap It states diesel but the car uses gasoline.
4.Alignment The vehicle consistently pulls slightly to the right.
5.Owners manual states there is supposed to be a first aid kit, pg 232. None.
6. Squeak - Sounds like styrofoam rubbing together.
Jerky start - seems like the fuel pump/injector issue BMW has been having.
Utterly disappointed with this vehicle....
Regarding "Alignment ? The vehicle consistently pulls slightly to the right." All BMW's do this. It's a safety feature. Should the driver become incapacitated, the vehicle will gradually move over to the right shoulder. This is to avoid a head-on collision with opposing traffic.
