Review

Absolutely get rid of the run flats. Garbage!! Good regular sport tires with a flat fix kit will transform the x1 back to a real bmw. Not the harsh bouncing ill mannered car it is with run flats.

Review

We picked this car as a CPO from a BMW dealer. No problems to date. Relatively decent handling for the type car, and just the right size and height. We stayed away from the newer version to avoid a Mini based front wheel platform derived car as opposed to a BMW based one. The new 2018 X1 also features a flimsy cloth covering under the moonroof that I can see ripping quickly. If you want a X1 like this may I suggest springing for the upgraded interior. Base level seating has poor lateral support and are unacceptable. Base halogen headlights are unacceptable and should be avoided. My 3 series coupe has xenons which are "light years" better. Sorry!:-) Base sound system is "media-ocre" at best. I don't understand the need for moonroofs on BMWs, and wish they would apportion the monies elsewhere and delete them. Acceleration with the 240 hp is considerably better than you would expect for a 4 cyl. It feels like a 6! Braking is only adequate , but some experts blame this on the stock tires rather than the car. I also would like a manual transmission X1 like they have in other countries! When you're shopping, seek out a well optioned example only! A base car sporting only a badge is bad form indeed.

Review

1. Dealership was a joke to work with, lied on two separate occasions about frivolous things.
2. Electronics keep tripping – Dealership has no idea. It’s not logging.
3. O2 Sensor light comes on every time I go down my parking garage and stays on for the remainder of the trip. Dealership has no idea what to do.
4. Key fob lasted 2 years. 300 Bucks+ for a new one, excluding programming costs.
5. Gas mileage nowhere near estimated. A daily commuter who uses the interstate. I’m not heavy on the gas, I estimate 20.5 mpg with 91-octane.
6. Brand new $39,000. For a 2014 BMW X1, NADA Resale max shows $19,500. At best I lost $19,500 in three years.
7. I will never own another BMW. I’ll stick with Lexus and Acura.
