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


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

Review

I purchased this car in Germany and have had it up to 120 mph on the autobahn. even at that speed it handled like a dream. it seems to get its best mileage at around 70 mph on the highway. My last vehicle was a Nissan Pathfinder and I thought I would miss the extra space that it provided. I have had no issues with the cargo room with this car, even with two small children.


Best Features

I love the heated seats. I did not think it would be as big of a deal as I do now.


Worst Features

The navigation system needs to be more user friendly and intuitive to use. It is hard to see what route you are supposed to take if the screen is using the blue color scheme. It takes a while and does not stick out but the route is marked in white and it blends in with the map.
