Good but not great.
By poeschel1 on


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


Purchased this car to replace a Tahoe for fuel economy. Gets great fuel economy, 2.5l is adequate but wish I had gone with the 3.0l. Excellent stability in poor driving conditions. Fit and finish is severely lacking. Ash tray lid won't stay closed. Paint chipping on roof rack. Often have issues with door locking system. Radio seems to delete all preset stations every couple days. I also have 330i and experience none of these issues. BMW really missed the mark with this car. Feels like a Kia.

Best Features

Fuel economy, stability and handling and overall design.

Worst Features

Make it feel more like a BMW. Cheep and low budget interior isn't what I have come to expect from BMW.
