Consumer Rating

Great car at the start, then not so good!
My initial love for my X3 turned to pure utter disappointment with the car, the dealerships and BMW U.S.A. within six months of ownership. Rides, drives and handles fine but that's about it. Broke down twice before 15,000 miles with fuel injection and electronics problems. Had to be towed out of my garage! They got it running again but wouldn't fix the console control buttons that were sticking because they said I must have spilled something on them. Wrong, I am so careful with this car I won't allow liquid anywhere inside it. Dealer said they'd be glad to fix them for $$841! Decided to cancel my extended warranty as it was clear to me that I wasn't going to keep this car beyond it's factory warranty period, even though the factory warranty turned out to be pretty useless anyway. I followed the cancellation instructions as provided in the booklet and it took seven months to get my money back and they shorted me $350 despite California law prohibiting any deductions if cancelled within the time frame that I did it. Dealers were awful and B.M.W. U.S.A. even worse. Can't wait to get rid of it and buy a Subaru Forester, which I never should have sold in the first place.
Upgrade from X1 to X3
This is a wonderful car to drive! I was looking at the X1s first. I did a lot of research, read all kinds of reviews and took several test drives in the X1. I had made up my mind and had an order all written up for the color and options I wanted. The dealer was shooting a commercial on their 2016 service loaners with big markdowns and under 5K miles. I asked its they were leasable.... not the 2016s but they had a couple 2017 service loaners that were..... for the same lease price as the less equipped X1! I took one for a test drive.... so much nicer and more comfortable than the X1. I changed my mind and leased the X3 right then and there! It is a comfortable, quiet and really fun to drive SAV. Plenty of power and good gas milage too.... amazing! Some long trips coming up and this will make them much more enjoyable. Just go drive one! I came off a Ford Escape lease and moved up to the X3. The price difference really isn't that much for the big step up in comfort, quality and drivability.
I own a 2004 x5 v8 which I passed on to my son, Pretty good performance, and utility, and durability. I started shopping 6 months ago for a new vehicle. and I drove everything before returning to BMW ( I had a loaner x3 w/ 2.8 engine , and felt it was "pokey") So this time, I tried a 2017 x3 3.5 xdrive WITH M Sport package- I am a big fan of the seat cushion extension- and WOW. This machine really moves. I feel like the Little Old Lady From Pasadena- except I am 70, & living in Scottsdale. I can't say enough good things about this vehicle. Perfect for me at 6'3" , and I can haul lumber, boxes, whatever. The styling is great too. Worth the $$. Tony.

2017 BMW X3 xDrive28i ****Options Include:, 8-Speed Automatic. 28/21 Highway/City MPG

As it enters its seventh year of production, the 2017 BMW X3 epitomizes the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. Boasting generous passenger and cargo room, a trio of strong-performing yet fuel-efficient engines, and handling that is more sport sedan than sport utility, the X3 remains a top choice in this segment despite its advanced age (in car years).

The chiseled body of the 2017 BMW X3 does a good job of hiding the fact that it provides plenty of space for passengers, especially in the back seat. And there is ample room for cargo. Indeed, the X3 ranks near the top of its class in both categories in terms of roominess. Additional kudos go to the X3's luxurious cabin for its high-quality materials and user-friendly controls. The latter in particular includes an intuitive and quick-responding touchscreen infotainment interface.

An array of four trim levels, which essentially denote the engine and drivetrain, make up the 2017 BMW X3 lineup. Specifically, they are sDrive28i, xDrive28i, xDrive28d and xDrive35i. The term sDrive equates to rear-wheel drive, while xDrive means all-wheel drive. Further translation reveals that 28i means a turbocharged four-cylinder, 28d means a diesel-powered turbocharged four-cylinder, and 35i means a turbocharged six-cylinder. All versions of the X3 offer quick off-the-line acceleration and impressive fuel economy.

Being a BMW, the X3 commands a pretty penny, and on paper it may not seem to deliver as much value as some rivals. Even still, all of the 28 versions come well-stocked with standard luxury features, such as a power liftgate, eight-way power front seats and a nine-speaker audio system, while the 35i adds a few more perks, such as xenon headlights, a panoramic sunroof, and keyless entry and ignition.

The 2017 BMW X3 offers a winning combination of an engaging and rewarding driving experience paired with a roomy and welcoming interior. When you are in the market, Edmunds is ready to help you find the ideal 2017 BMW X3.
