Well the X3 is going tomorrow.

Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:21 pm

I've decided to get shut of my 58 plate E83 X3. I've had it one week shy of 12 months and after having a year of BMW mechanical and electrical problems between the wife's E39 330i Msport  hard top convertible and my X3 , 3.0d Msport I was getting bong paranoid.
The 330i suffered a failed roll over sensor £400
Failed ABS/ DSC pump  £700
Blown Xenon headlight bulb £120
Rear discs and pads £200
Worn suspension bush £100
Two new rear tyres £200
Alloy refurbishment £260
Service and Valet £185
Then she decided she wanted an SUV after a drive home in the snow in a 3 litre RWD car frightened her to death

Hi

Sounds like some sensible choices especially with the Mrs car it's important to feel safe.

I know the Kia offer a 7 year warranty and that does make sense for a lot of people as you have seven years of worry free motoring and as these costs are going up all the time.

To me it make sense when compared to the amount you spent on your older X3 as you spent over £1500 on repairs in a year which is a lot to have to fork out.

Good luck with the Kia and the Honda and remember to keep posting on the forum as your knowledge will always help others who have similar issues, and it's good to hear about other makes.
