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


3.0 engine rocks. Much better than 2.4.
Not your standard luxury SUV-not
bloated or soft. Cat-quick, great
handling. Tranny smooth as butter.
Interior materials superior. No junk.
Tasteful. Sport setting on transmission
works best. Seats wonderful. Only SUV
my wife (4'11) and I (6'3) can both
actually drive comfortably. Leather
nubby but I like it. Stiff suspension
but only feel it on really rough roads.
On the highway it runs like a dream.
It's like driving a sedan with a very
large trunk. Had no intention of buying
a BMW but after driving them all fell
in love with it. Deserves a long look
and long test drive.

Best Features

Interior build quality. Seats. Performance. Handling. Gas mileage is 17.7 in city, 24 on highway so far. Sun roof and front windshield allow great visiblity. No blind spots (unlike fX-35) 4 year total maintenance.

Worst Features

Pre-wire satellite should be standard.
