So, always wanted a BMW...finally bought one off a 3-year lease that was certified.
My salesperson said that once I owned a BMW that'd it'd be the only car I'd ever own again..he was SO correct!!
The handling is great for an SUV; just like a sports sedan.
And, yes, the ride is bumpy. I've read that it's been improved after 2006.
But I don't mind..because it handles so great in snow & rain.
I've had gas mileage 35 mpg on highway.
Of course, with A/C on and driving in city, any car can be as bad as 10 mpg, no exception to date.
Even with gas prices predicted at $5.00/gallon, I'd rather be in something safe than a roller skate getting 40 mpg.
Think about it!!
Planning on keeping this.
LOVE the handling!!
And gas mileage is very good if you drive smart.
Safety ratings are great. Handles reliably in any bad weather and is mechanically reliable.
Heated back seats would be heaven...just saying!!
I am officially spoiled now.
