BMW has lost their quality

2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 8A)


I've owned 4 BMW's and this will be my last.
There is a problem with the transmission that BMW knew about and didn't fix.
They continued to make cars with this problem.
When the car is not on, you cannot put it on neutral.
Which means you cannot tow your car.
I have only had this car for 7 months and I've had to tow it 2 times.

They do not provide you with a spare tire.
I got a flat and had the tow the car to the dealership.
The run flat tire feature did not work.

Why pay more if you get less?
I would not recommend this car to anyone.

Worst Features

Provide a spare tire! Fix the transmission! Don't compromise your quality and standards because you have a good reputation.
