2012 BMW X3 Long Term Road Test


2012 BMW X3: Three Thousand Miles Later

August 06, 2012

No doubt you've noticed our long-term 2012 BMW X3 has been missing in action and unblogged for a good two weeks. I take full credit for that, as I've just returned from 3,253 miles on the road -- a meandering journey to Seattle and back.

I'll chronicle the trip in various installments this week, but for now I'll offer this: The ride quality was excellent for the duration of our travels, yes, even with 19-inch wheels and run-flat tires, and even over some seriously crumbling pavement in San Francisco.

And when I rolled into the office garage this morning, the X3 was just 210 miles shy of needing its first oil service. We'll likely have that done this week.
