Vehicle

2004 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

As soon as I test drove this vehicle I was hooked. The vehicle has plenty of pick-up, is very comfortable and visibility from the driver's seat is very good. I've read alot of reviews on this car and many of them complain about the ride but my experience, so far, is that the ride is just right. After all it's a BMW - my '01 3 touring rides just like it.


Favorite Features

My favorite features for this car is the exterior appearance. It's truly the look of a typical BMW except in the Sport Activity Vehicle design. The interior leather is truly awesome; the upgraded radio is great too.


Suggested Improvements

Some of the thing lacking with the vehicle would be the typical things associated with BMW-it lacks a flashlite, it needs more storage space for small items, the computer system needs to be expanded with more features.

2004 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Had the X3 for a few months now. Zero problems/squeaks/rattles. Trans, cup holders, hatch, moonroof, AC, everything all work perfectly; a few of you guys must have gotten bad ones. Bought it to go up to the mountains in the winter; enjoy the incredible handling, brakes, visiblity, smoothness, stereo the rest of the year. Fits in the garage easily. Very comfofrtable to drive for long periods.


Favorite Features

brakes, stereo, moonroof, remote locking system


Suggested Improvements

Too high price premium for the larger motor (why? just to gouge the customer?). Needs more compliant shocks.

Review

I just traded in a toyota corolla for my first BMW. I previously owned a Ford Explorer Sport. The ride is amazing. MPG isn't so bad - appx 20mpg. Definitely worth owning. Dealership was very helpful.


Favorite Features

I love the radio controls on the steering wheel. I feel very powerful and safe in this vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

Only negative is that the leatherette seats are not that easy to clean. I was told to use Non Ammonia window cleaner and it doesn't seem to work. The intermittent windshield wiper system is also confusing.
