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


Review

I was very pleased with the reliability of this first model year vehicle. It has a lower profile for an SUV allowing for better turns and sports car handling. I have had no mechanical problems and the included service contract is a plus. The only problem is the lip or running board. It is sometimes difficult to get in and out of the vehicle. I would like it to be thinner. Overall I am very satified with the X3.


Best Features

Sports car handling.


Worst Features

Change design of the running board feature. Makes it difficult to enter and exit.

Review

It's been over 2 years I've been hauling around in this baby SUV, and I'd say it's been a great car. The styling is excellent, the quality is there, and the XDrive feature has great in heavy rain and at the beach. It's small enough to park but the interior is surpisingly roomy (I'm 6'5" and fit just fine). It's the first car I've ever owned that the seats go back farther than I need them to.


Best Features

Styling, engine, mega moon roof, handling


Worst Features

Stiff ride can be improved, and the gas mileage averages 13 mpg city. Highway is good if you stay <75mph on flat terrain, averaging 23-26 mpg.

Review

Nice SUV (SAV). If I were shopping for a vehical today I would buy it again. This is the first vehicle I have owned that I can say that about.


Best Features

The suspension has to be this truck's greatest feature.


Worst Features

Everything I gripe about on my truck has been changed on the new trucks. Body color bumpers, stonger engine, three point steering wheel. Minor changes that add to the whole package experience.
