BMW Reliability: How Long Does a BMW Last?

2019 BMW X1

Drivers who are shopping for a new or Certified Pre-Owned vehicle have probably wondered about BMW reliability. Questions like, “Is a BMW a good car?” or “How long does a BMW last?” or “How many miles does a BMW last?” come up all the time–and we take a lot of pride in telling our drivers just how reliable these models really are! BMW of San Diego has gathered information from experts who have studied BMW reliability. Get the answers you’re searching for below!

Is a BMW a Good Car?

Is a BMW a good car? To answer this question, Chula Vista drivers should consult a dependability study from J.D. Power. This study asked car-owners about any problems their three-year-old vehicles encountered in the last twelve months.

A particular standout in this study is the BMW 2 Series, which ranked as the single most dependable small sedan. The i3, the 4 Series, the X3, and the X1 were all recipients of an honorable mention.

Are BMW vehicles good cars in general? In the same study, BMW ranked 8th place out of 31 manufacturers. This places it in an elite category, well above the industry average.

How Many Miles Do BMW Vehicles Last?

Is a BMW a good car for those who want to own a vehicle for years to come? iSeeCars singled out the BMW X3, finding it the longest-lasting luxury compact SUV available today.

But how many miles do BMW vehicles last in general? Almost any BMW has the potential to run for up to 200,000 or even 250,000 miles with proper maintenance–and there are always going to be outliers that go further. Since every new BMW includes complimentary factory-recommended maintenance through BMW Ultimate Care, it’s easy to start off on the right foot.
