Nice, but .............
By ProMariner on


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


I originally started looking at the Cadillac SRX, but didn't like their bundled options and price. I love the styling and performance of the BMW, but there is a lot of room for improvement. The ride is a bit stiff. Acceleration and handling are great making this vehicle fun to drive. This is my first SUV and I couldn't believe the poor gas mileage, on premium fuel! Next, the front door seals protrude into the doorways, making them susceptible to damage during entry/ exit. And the cargo area is poorly lit by a light on the tailgate. If you slam the tailgate too hard, the bulb pops out of its socket! I wish they would pay more attention to the details. Nice, but not worth the $43k price tag.

Best Features

Handling, performance, cargo capacity, that big sunroof!

Worst Features

Gas mileage, front door seals, rear cargo compartment light, silly electrical problems, all those expensive accessories.
