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

Review

Okay, it was time to dump my great 2000 SAAB 9/5 loaded wagon before the warranty ran out. I looked all summer at Jeep, Suburu and Mazda 6 deals and then saw the sign and drive ad for the X3. The dealership had a black on black "basic" X3 and with one test drive, I reached for my wallet. What a great vehicle. It handles like a sports car, gets great mileage and I don't miss the "loaded" features I was used to. The six speed is awesome and of course, the "six" has no turbo, thus no "lag". The only strange thing is not to have cruise control as standard equipment. My buddy says I'll be paying for that .....in fines. It is very smooth and quiet at high speeds.

Favorite Features

6 speed, heated seats, decent cup holders for driver and passenger, quality of basic radio/cd sound.

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control should be standard.
