2007 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I bought this vehicle to be both fun and utility vehicle. The transmission behaves so erratically it is downright dangerous. On more than several occasions its lack of response has cause near fatal accidents. It typically hesitates between 2-3 gear which is where you are at when entering a turn-about or merging into traffic quickly. The sports drive mode down shifts so hard that you swear you have been "rear-ended" by another driver. BMWNA has tried to pass this off as part of the "adaptive" or learning features of this car.

Best Features

Styling, acceleration when used in "manual" mode is great, Heated steering wheel, panoramic roof, leatherette near bullet proof.

Worst Features

Don't use this transmission. It doesnt work. Stereo system if very poor. 4 inch speakers just can't reproduce good fidelity especially when outsourced to some brand that uses poor materials.
