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


We had a 325xi wagon for the past three years and really enjoyed it. We were not sure that we were going to get another BMW because we wanted to save some money on the payments. So we went and drove a ton of cars and decided that we liked what BMW had to offer in either a new 325 wagon or an X3. The X3 had the best pricing incentives for a lease so we went with it. The car is a base model with auto trans. It handles like a BMW. We like the leatherette for clean up and comfort. The radio could be better for the price. The DTC is miserable. We turn it off all the time. It makes the car hunt around in 1st and 2nd gear trying to avoid losing traction.

Best Features

Power seats, AC system, handling, good interior space for the size, the car has very good power for merging and passing, good visibility, easy entry and exit from all seats.

Worst Features

Dynamic Traction Control needs to be remapped. Passenger cup holder should be adjusted to a better location. The suspension can get a bit rough and toss you around at highway speeds (405 fwy in LA). Redesign the rear hatch to have a flip glass section. The front doors open a little to quickly.
