The 2.5 Manual Has Enough Power
By H. Jones on


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


The 25 liter 6 speed manual trans. offers gear ratio's which are correct for the nenine. I get 20 mpg around town and 27-28 mpg on the road. I have heard complaints about the power. I live in the Rocky Mountains and have not trouble with power as well as no trouble with passing. Perhaps, drivers don't like the managing the power with a manual transmission. It takes deep snow well and will do a good job in mud (we have both). I replaced the original tires at 20,00 miles with Kelly Navigators; good tires! The only problem I have had is the seat cover on the drivers side cracking. It handles so well I think many sedans would be poor by comparison.

Best Features

Gas mileage and handling.

Worst Features

Change the clutch and brake pedal position.
