My new X3....Next time, maybe I will buy a Hyundai

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.
