From model years 2004-2010 the BMW X3 was sold in the United States as a first-generation crossover with all-wheel-drive, and a cab equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology. The X3 was based on the popular BMW three-series and is also referred to as the e83. Rather than call it an SUV, BMW decided to market the car as a Sport “Activity” vehicle to attract a new range of customers. Since this was the first generation of the new vehicle, there are some inherent problems that continue to be discovered by owners. These common problems include:
False Passenger Airbag Light: A faulty passenger detection switch may be the cause of this problem, in which the passenger airbag light is illuminated whether someone is sitting in the front passenger seat or not.
Sunroof Rattling: When the sunroof is closed there is no noise. But once the driver cracks the sunroof it will make rattling and knocking noises.
Leaky Valve and Covers: Many owners have noticed oil and other fluid leakage onto their exhaust manifold and spark plug wells.
Transfer Case Problems: The X3 is an all-wheel-drive so it has a transfer case which transfers power from the transmission to the drive axles. This has been known to fail and cause a loud whining noise, especially in the 2004 and 2005 models.
If your BMW X3 is experiencing any of these problems, we suggest that you visit a local Bimmer maintenance shop to have it diagnosed and repaired properly. Their mechanics will use their experience and state-of-the-art tools to get your Bimmer back in tip-top condition.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
I left the dealership and other local vendors in the area. I won’t be looking back, because of low cost and BMW certified Techs that care about their work. These are the best professionals in town to service your vehicle.
For years my wedding ring has done its job as being the sparkle in my eye until my husband surprised me with a fully built Z4M. Bavarian did an over the top job building me a daily driver that is also great for track days. Now I can race with my husband rather than just watch
You guys do great work and have good prices very much appreciated thank you guys for everything
I must say Bavarian is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville. After spending several hundreds of dollars at the BMW Dealership my problem with my vacuum lines kept coming back. The BMW Guys found the issue added a new clamp and solved the problem. These guys know their BMWs.
