2006 BMW X3 3.0i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


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!
