That is a very typical remark for CR. If it isn't a Honda or whatever their flavor of the week is, they always have some negative remark. I do not consider them a reliable and unbiased source.

We have a 2011 X3 35i. Love it, no issues or problems of note. Would buy another without a second thought. That said, get the Carfax and check it out closely. Still is a big investment.
