Review

What a great SAV. BMW hit the nail on the head with this one. The only downside to the car is the fuel efficency. Other than that I wouldnt change a thing.


Best Features

Brakes, engine, BMW design/quality.


Worst Features

Improve the fuel efficency.

Review

First let me say how impressed I was with the handling of this SAV. Coming from an M Coupe I was not expecting a vehicle of this size to handle so well. The only problem is the ride is very stiff- making driving on some roads downright painful. The design is excellent, very solid and additional features- bluetoot and MP3 inputs were a plus. And the heated steering wheel- very nice here in NY.


Best Features

Large sun roof, heated steering wheel, bluetooth, exterior design, handling.


Worst Features

Stiffness of ride, interior materials on dash - too much rubber and tough to clean

Review

Has some improvements over my '04 X3. Servotronic steering is nice in parking lots, but dampens the road feel somewhat. It seems to wander around. Ride is much softer than '04, so it feels like it leans a bit more on corners, but still holds the road. Too many people complained that it drove like a BMW, I guess. This is supposed to be a sports car, not a Benz. Transmission program is better; smoother shift to 2nd gear. (Auto Trans.) The '04 would sometimes hold on to 1st gear then slam into 2nd. Overall, I love this vehicle and BMW in general.


Best Features

Servotronic - I'm lazy. Responsiveness of the suspension. Build quality is superior to most other vehicles.


Worst Features

The acceleration is LAME!

Review

This is my 3rd BMW and I would get it all over again; I love the bluetooh capability since I am on the phone most of the time. Over 40? Well, this guy would make feel 20 again without driving the typical and larger dad's SUV but with big enough cargo space than most SUVs. This guy was built to perform - you will be satisfied.


Best Features

Bluetooth: got to have it; safety and technology must go hand in hand today!


Worst Features

I can't think of any; you will get what you pay for!
