Consumer Review Video - 2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i 3.0L 6 Cyl.

Car Displayed: 2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i 3.0L 6 Cyl.

The 2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i is a very difficult car to maintain with many convoluted procedures. The engine air filter is tightly wedged into the engine bay and will require many parts to be disconnected before it can be removed. The interior fuse box cannot be reliably accessed without the removal of the entire glove box housing, further lengthening your electrical troubleshooting. This vehicle only comes with a tow hook, which can be a problem in the event of a flat.

However, the 2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i does have a few upsides. The headlights in the main housing require very few tools to access them, allowing for a reliable bulb change when necessary. The engine fuse box is easy to find in the trunk and comes with a fuse puller for convenience. The brake fluid reservoir can also be accessed without any problems, and has level markers that are easy to read.
