BMW X Models Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the BMW X Models reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
What year BMW X4 can I purchase on my budget?
It depends on which model X4 you want. With $65,000 you should be able to get into a 2018 model.

BMW X1 2011: Seats cracking
I presume the seats are leather. Leather needs regular maintenance with cleaner and conditioner to keep it supple and prevent it from drying out and cracking. You can buy leather conditioner at all major auto outlets.
BMW X6: Do you recommend buying?
The reality is that the chances of problems increases as the mileage climbs, so to expect a car to be trouble-free after 300,000 km is asking a lot. If the car you buy is in good condition, with a full service history then you stand a good chance, but it’s important to maintain the servicing and be prepared to fix anything that breaks or wears out, and hope it’s nothing major. Other makes are subject to the same provisos.
Land Rover Discovery 3 and BMW X5 2009: Maintenance costs
What you want isn’t readily available, so I would suggest you survey a number of mechanics specialising in Discoveries and X5s to get the information.
BMW X5 2003: What is the market value?
Depending on the engine, the range is $4500 to $7500.
What car should I buy for $70,000?
You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.
BMX X3 2015: is it good around town?
The diesel is fine around town. Being just three years old there shouldn't be anything wrong, so apart from overall condition of the body, paint, and interior make sure it has been routinely serviced.
