This model is too new for our records, but BMWs, and specifically the previous X3, have a poor reliability record.
In the 2014 JD Power Survey, the X3 was rated below average for reliability in its class, while BMW as a brand finished a disappointing 24th out of the 26 manufacturers surveyed. That said, Audi didn’t fair much better, and neither did its Q5, with both of them also receiving below-average scores.
Every X3 comes with a three-year unlimited-mileage warranty to protect against large unexpected bills. This also includes a three-year paintwork warranty and a 12-year anti-corrosion promise.
