Your car will need fresh oil to stay functioning.

2012 BMW X3

Excessive oil consumption. It's a fact of life: your car will need fresh oil to stay functioning. However, if you are finding it is needing changes and top-ups more frequently than it should, there might be a problem. Early signs you need to check your oil include a minor dip in performance and the ever-dreaded oil light on your dashboard. When your car is in a particularly dire need of an oil change, you may even start to see corrosion in its engine. Another oil-related complaint is the clogged oil filter. You'll probably see this problem if you've waited too long to change the oil. While modern cars come with systems that are equipped with filter bypasses, it's a good rule of thumb to change the filter whenever you change the oil.

I love the x3 a lot of space compared to other BMWs.

2012 BMW X3 35i

Not many problems, however in the winter time like most other BMW's the tire signal shows up and says that they need more air pressure which is not always the case but the alert will not go away and blocks the message screen above the steering wheel. Another problem is the passenger seat, the piece that moves it broke underneath, same thing happen in my dads car.

BMW X3 - Rugged, stylish, comfortable, and powerful

2012 BMW X3

The BMW X3 offers a unique and powerful blend of refined interior luxury, exterior good looks, and strong driving performance. After nearly seven years, maintenance has been minimal compared to the horror stories told word-of-mouth about BMW repairs. And even without the advanced features found in the X3M, my BMW X3 really is a joy to drive and own.
