2005 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


First time BMW owner, and so far impressed. Responsive steering, excellent braking, front seats very comfortable. Could have used more sound proofing for interior. Road noise and wind flowing across top noticeable. Tight fitting vehicle, no rattles. Titanium int. seems durable. Easy to handle. A head turner. Cargo area seems small with rear seats up.

Best Features

Dependability. Handling in snow. Moon roof. Memory seats. Responsive steering almost to the point I feel I could over correct though. Zippy. Excellent braking. Great looks! Because of the synthetic oil required, only have to change twice a year which is convenient but costs about $100.

Worst Features

Can't figure out how to lock the door when I exit unless door is shut. More sound proofing material. Ride a bit rough. Upgrade interior material. Drop the ash tray. Build to accept mid grade fuel rather than the 91 octane - - but only adds $3.50 or so per tank at today's price.
