2010 X3...Should I get it?

I'm looking at an 2010 X3 3.0i with 90,000km for $27k. Is the X3 a reliable vehicle? Are there any issues with it?

Any type of advice is appreciated. Thanks

Personally I would stay away from the X series, from what I've heard there's many issues. Plus for 27K there's many other BMW's that you'd be able to get more for your money.

Why the X3 specifically?

I have a '07 X3 3.0si and I have not had significant problems after 110,000 kms. O2 sensor went recently and had to be swapped. That's about it.

Great driving vehicle. I drive a VW Golf daily and the X3 is my wife's car. It's such a big difference in handling and just driving experience.

X3 has the same reliability as the 3 series for the most part...however, the E53 and E70 are different animals, especially the V8s...log into for more info...I signed up when I was looking for an E70
