From SAAB to X3

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


Okay, it was time to dump my great 2000
SAAB 9/5 loaded wagon before the
warranty ran out. I looked all summer
at Jeep, Suburu and Mazda 6 deals and
then saw the sign and drive ad for the
X3. The dealership had a black on black
"basic" X3 and with one test drive, I
reached for my wallet. What a great
vehicle. It handles like a sports car,
gets great mileage and I don't miss
the "loaded" features I was used to.
The six speed is awesome and of course,
the "six" has no turbo, thus no "lag".
The only strange thing is not to have
cruise control as standard equipment.
My buddy says I'll be paying for that
.....in fines. It is very smooth and
quiet at high speeds.

Best Features

6 speed, heated seats, decent cup holders for driver and passenger, quality of basic radio/cd sound.

Worst Features

Cruise control should be standard.
