A Non-Truck!
By ProMariner on


2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I am not a big fan of SUV's, but finally needed something larger than my car. This baby does the trick! Styling, versatility, comfort, and performance all rolled into one! Inside you don't have the feeling of being in a truck or mini-van. Outside, there's no mistaking it for a pick-up with a cap. With the 3.0 liter engine you fly and if you feel sporty, the 5-speed automatic lets you shift manually. Between the roof rack, trailer hitch, and cargo bay you can put your bicycles on top, out back, or inside! It may not be enough room for a party of six, but it's more than enough for a couple or small family. Only knock is that the AWD gets 16MPG around town and requires premium gas only.

Best Features

Flexibility, and the feeling of being in a sports car!

Worst Features

As with Cadillac, Mercedes, and most of the other high-end "Sport U'tes" BMW needs to figure out how to keep up performace on regular gas. That extra 20 cents per gallon at the pumps is annoying, at best.
