Diesel Emission Controls are the worst.

Review

My 2011 X35d is in the shop for the 5th time in 7 yrs. Each time emission repairs cost in the thousands of dollars. Have spent more on just emission repairs than the car is worth. Car was in the shop for 5 weeks two months ago. Car is in the shop now and has been for 3 weeks. All work done by BMW dealership. PUMA case initiated last visit because dealership can not figure out recurring emission problems. BMW corporate answer was continue to replace parts! Mercedes Benz and Volkswagon has the same problems with their diesel engines. None of the Germans have figured out a good emissions controls package to meet USA specs.

Review

This is a very low miles , immaculate inside and out, BMW service by the numbers car with mid time tire wear. Front glass shows some pitting, but no cracks or repairs. Incredible tow vehicle ( I towed a 2000 lb. glider trailer approx. 5000 mi.). The car was garaged when not in daily use. The torque generated by the Diesel engine in the Colorado mountains where I mostly operated is amazing. I am fond enough of the BMW diesel system that I traded for a new one for replacement. I traded mostly because I wanted newer technology.

Review

Bought this car pre owned, 50k miles great condition, looked and drove like brand new. Within the first 6 months I had put $3k in repairs into the car, it’s been none stop repairs and maintainace ever since. Requires around $4k minimally a year in general upkeep. Horrible on gas, always in the shop, electronic issues-radio comes and goes, lock chime comes and goes, comfort access works half the time. Always an issue, leak, repair, won’t start, I mean the list is endless. Beautiful car drives like a dream, amazing in the snow, beautiful to look at but cost of ownership is out of control. Will be going back to a Mercedes truck next time around.
