I bought this car for my wife and our 2 year old son. It is very heavy which means it is safe, however, the weight is a problem with getting in to move from the start. Once going, the ride is great. I recommend it to anyone wanting a BMW SUV. Skip the X3. Gas mileage is OK. I haven't tried towing my boat with it yet, but it says it tows 6,000... Safe car, no blind spots and easy to park.
Interior is beautiful. Sunroof is huge. Safe and heavy car and is rated high on the editors most wanted. Seats are comfortable.
A little more HP in the 3.0 b/c the SUV is so heavy. Other than that it is perfect.
