2015 BMW X3 - Worth it to keep? Sign In

Hey all, I purchased a 2015 BMW X3 back in 2015 (cash sale with the dealer). I am getting close to the 80,000km mark at which point my warranty will expire (5 years or 80,000km), and I was considering selling it, but I really like it and would prefer to keep it.
My question is, how is the long term reliability on the X3? I had been reading some reviews and people seem to rate the reliability as really good, but I figured I would ask in a public forum and get some more input than just reading reviews.
If this vehicle has a tendency to fall apart as the years go by, I'll get rid of it. I basically want something I know will turn on, either with my current vehicle, or selling it for a new one.

Try this for what is really an "Exotic" car and very pricey to both just maintain and outright nasty costs to fix! See what it's worth on the markets now and with what warranty frequently from dealers will take the trade and warranty it bumper to bumper again or I find they are tough to sell.
Dealer is more likely to give you the best trade in price make sure it's real as you should know. If you love these and can swap them out join that club that does that never worries about the costs except initial price then trade in time,

I worked at a shop that specialized in BMW and Mercedes.

Either one of them can be a headache when they get a little old with a lot of miles. The Mercedes is worse than the BMW though.

As far as yours, you haven't reached that point yet. Yours is still pretty young and if you maintain it well you can push even further. You should be able to go well over 200K km without too much in problems if you maintain it well.
