What Owners Say
"The iDrive System crashes consistently at least once/week. During normal commuting. This happens in stop-and-go traffic as well as cruise control highway driving. Have updated the system. It seems to be an ongoing issue BMW has yet to resolve."Lonnie M., MN (2017 BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
"The main computer failed, requiring replacement under warranty. All of the problems I listed failed because of this. It would have cost at least $2000 if not under warranty"Frank F., VA (2017 BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"System would not recognize the iPhone it was already paired to on previous session. This happens repeatedly."Jeffrey B., MA (2017 BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
"The satellite radio module was improperly programmed at the factory. It took the dealer a week to determine what was wrong and then order the parts to fix it."Barry K., FL (2017 BMW 3 Series 320i 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"Car came with subscription to satellite radio. It stopped working. It took 4 requests up to and including the service manager before BMW would correct the problem. They replaced entire radio/navigation system."Anonymous, TX (2017 BMW 3 Series 330e 2.0-L 4 Cyl hybrid)
