2008 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Driving Hondas for years (owned three and put over 200k miles on each of them). I recently purchased a new BMW X3 in September. Been a BMW motorcyclist for over 25 years. I thought I would try one of their four wheeled models. I have been a bit skeptical about the quality of BMW cars, "they drive great, but more electrical demons than you can imagine" and so on is what I would hear. The X3 drives great, it's a solid handler, great tracking, good road feel. But guess what: at 1243 miles my cd player-radio just decided to quite working, off to the shop it goes. It's a minor issue, but a radio should work on a brand new $43k car!!
No question about the handling of these cars. Great road feel, great performance.
Improve your electrical engineering! BMW builds a great car, but the Japanese have you beat on quality issues, I know my radio issue is minor, but who knows what's next?
