2004 BMW X3 SUV 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

It's been over 2 years I've been hauling around in this baby SUV, and I'd say it's been a great car. The styling is excellent, the quality is there, and the XDrive feature has great in heavy rain and at the beach. It's small enough to park but the interior is surpisingly roomy (I'm 6'5" and fit just fine). It's the first car I've ever owned that the seats go back farther than I need them to.


Best Features

Styling, engine, mega moon roof, handling


Worst Features

Stiff ride can be improved, and the gas mileage averages 13 mpg city. Highway is good if you stay <75mph on flat terrain, averaging 23-26 mpg.

2004 BMW X3 SUV 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Nice SUV (SAV). If I were shopping for a vehical today I would buy it again. This is the first vehicle I have owned that I can say that about.


Best Features

The suspension has to be this truck's greatest feature.


Worst Features

Everything I gripe about on my truck has been changed on the new trucks. Body color bumpers, stonger engine, three point steering wheel. Minor changes that add to the whole package experience.

2004 BMW X3 SUV 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Great handling, fun to drive. Excellent on curve-y PCH. Fuel economy is not the greatest but enjoy driving it so much that I don't mind filling up.


Best Features

S-drive. Acceleration is great.


Worst Features

In-dash computer could have more details and options. Passenger cup holder is far too flimsy and in an awkward place.

Review

After reading the review of others which said the suspension and ride of this model year was not up to BMW standards - I was suprised. The car is about as smooth as can be. It is a pleasure to drive. I see no flaws.


Best Features

The moon roof is breathtaking.


Worst Features

The cup holders could be improved.
