BMW Cut Some Interior Corners
By Cathy Tulman on

Vehicle

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

Review

Time to downsize from Lincoln Aviator. '07 X3 is perfect size and 1/3 less to fill gas tank. Fun to drive, agile, smooth and quick. Interior disappointing. Have an '07 BMW 328xi and expected equivalent interior comfort features on X3 but BMW did not provide them: (1) heat/AC system is not dual, has no vent in rear seat, and no heat circulation when engine off; (2) leather/comfort of sport seats inferior to 3 series; (3) radio Bluetooth features are limited compared to 3 series; (4) heated seats weak. The iPod add-on connection is awful - can't hook-up while driving, shows "Track #" not song name, cord too short, takes glove compartment space - use standard auxiliary. Park assist feature annoying.

Favorite Features

Size, sunroof, sport steering wheel.

Suggested Improvements

(1) Open back-window separate from entire hatch. (2) Garage door opener to work when car off - now it fills garage with exhaust. Remove from mirror as it bumps out of place when pushed. (3) Dual door lock buttons plus auto lock when moving. (4) Clock - without turning off radio & temperature.
