It's Great Driving a BMW
By mfpeters1 on
2007 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Purchased this CPO 2007 model to move my wife out of mini vans. She instantly appreciated the sensation of driving a BMW. Acceleration is smooth and powerful and handling is exceptional. The cabin fits her well and gives her a great view of the road. The automatic transmission does take some getting used to; it shifts a little differently than most. We've had some some issues (for example, had to get the cylinder head replaced) but all were covered under warranty and included a 3 Series loaner car. Going the CPO route saves a lot of money while still getting great warranty. This is an excellent vehicle and a blast to drive.
Strong engine, great handling, great seating position, all wheel drive.
Interior controls need some updating and modernizing. Doors don't automatically unlock when leaving the car.
