2006 BMW X3 3.0i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Has some improvements over my '04 X3. Servotronic steering is nice in parking lots, but dampens the road feel somewhat. It seems to wander around. Ride is much softer than '04, so it feels like it leans a bit more on corners, but still holds the road. Too many people complained that it drove like a BMW, I guess. This is supposed to be a sports car, not a Benz. Transmission program is better; smoother shift to 2nd gear. (Auto Trans.) The '04 would sometimes hold on to 1st gear then slam into 2nd. Overall, I love this vehicle and BMW in general.


Best Features

Servotronic - I'm lazy. Responsiveness of the suspension. Build quality is superior to most other vehicles.


Worst Features

The acceleration is LAME!

Review

This is my 3rd BMW and I would get it all over again; I love the bluetooh capability since I am on the phone most of the time. Over 40? Well, this guy would make feel 20 again without driving the typical and larger dad's SUV but with big enough cargo space than most SUVs. This guy was built to perform - you will be satisfied.


Best Features

Bluetooth: got to have it; safety and technology must go hand in hand today!


Worst Features

I can't think of any; you will get what you pay for!

Review

I went from the 325i to X3 and have overall been pleased. Minor issues are only one cup holder in middle; many come stock with fake leather- it looks terrible and doesn't wear well either. Go for the REAL THING! It does feel more like a sports vehicle than luxury. But, it's fun to drive!


Best Features

Picks up fast- zips around great!


Worst Features

Widen the front exterior. Unimpressive from the front. Lacks some luxuries.

Some increase in fuel economy.

Review

Well, it's no surprise that the X3 has not let me down. It is, as with every BMW offered, the best in its class. No other SUV can touch the X3 mainly because it's an SAV... there's a huge difference. Homerun! The only other small SUV I'd own is an 07 X3!!


Best Features

Incredible handling and the surprising cargo capacity. And who can forget the panoramic moonroof?!


Worst Features

None
