In 4 years and 49000 miles this car
has been in the shop for a repair just
twice, both under warranty. The car
is as tight and fun to drive as the
day I bought it. I never keep cars
after the warranty has expired, but in
this case I am making an exception. I
can't find another car I like any
better, and it is so good I figure
maybe to save a little money and stay
with it for another year or so.

The BMW of sport-utes earns its stripes
with outstanding handling and
acceleration, coupled with class-
leading ride quality and way above
average fuel economy. My 2000 has
never been in the shop other than for
scheduled maintenance. At 42000 miles
the tires have another 20,000 in them,

a vehicle of its bulk. Fit, finish and
quality of materials is first class.
