Happy but Sore
By KEG on


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


Have had this car for three months, and so far absolutely no complaints other than a very harsh ride with the sport package. Believe them when they say it is harsh!! This is not a problem at all on regular roads, but uneven pavement/ dirt roads/ speed bumps, etc are brutal. Good handling makes it worth the sacrifice, maybe. Navigation system is a fun feature, although inputting the destination is a little time-consuming. Some passengers have commented that it is difficult to get in and out, although I have had no problem. Very fun commuter vehicle overall, looks great, and has a nice cargo space as a bonus!

Best Features

Excellent handling/ acceleration/ braking, as expected. Panorama sunroof is HUGE! Nice cargo space for a small SUV. Premium sound is great.

Worst Features

Ride is VERY stiff with sport package... also would prefer a more luxurious interior, although build quality is fine.
