The 2022 BMW X3 is designed for the luxury-minded consumer who is looking for something exciting. The automaker claims it provides “a bold outlook,” but the average driver has found several aspects that are causing discouragement. From the faulty electrical system to the uncomfortable seating configuration, there are a lot of reasons to start looking for something else.

Problems with the Electrical System

There’s every reason to assume that the 2022 BMW X3 comes with every tech feature consumers could want. After all, the price is not rock-bottom and this luxury model is hailed as a tech haven. Yet, problems are all that seem to be delivered.

Here’s one Edmunds review worth reading. “You can somewhat customize it. Due to supply chain issue, most BMWs are missing wireless charger, mine did not come with one.”

A luxury SUV should not be “somewhat” customizable. That’s simply ridiculous. Furthermore, how does the new luxury model come without a wireless charger? The automaker actually thinks that consumers want to plug their devices into the vehicle ports? Imagine the mess and clutter that creates. Clearly, BMW is expecting far too much from its clientele and many of them might start jumping ship to drive a Mercedes-Benz instead. It doesn’t look like BMW has a “bold outlook” on retention.

Problems with the Seats

When driving a luxury vehicle, the seats should surround drivers and passengers with complete comfort. There’s no reason for there to be any discomfort, but there seems to be plenty.

Another Edmunds review states, “The driver seat is not as comfortable as I would like it and I wish it had maybe 1 more inch of lift capability so that I could sit a little higher.”

At this point, customers have to be wondering what they are paying for. First, the top electrical features are missing and now the seats cause discomfort. This isn’t the type of SUV most people want to take long rides in and it’s too expensive to use just to head to the neighborhood grocery store. The only “bold outlook” that BMW can count on is that record numbers of customers are going to choose something different next time.
