Don't be a sucker for BMW
By Bill on


2007 BMW X3 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Okay, I have myself to blame. I buy a new car every two years, last one was a 2004 Acura TL--not the most expensive car I've owned, but far and away the best car in every category. I read the reviews for BMW X3 and know the car was not higly thought of in the past--but that 2007 was a NEW year with many improvements. The gas mileage is bad! 18mpg city/highway. The tranny is rough, and at low RPM there is almost zero torque and a rough go until about 25mph. The electronics are less than high tech--the radio is pathetic for a $44k vehicle--and the rear seats, despite what the catalogue said, do not fold flat, making the rear space useless for boxes, dogs, and anything else.

Best Features

Adaptable headlights

Worst Features

For a vehicle that costs $44k Not Loaded...it should have a smoother tranny, better torque, a flat cargo area, and a radio and navigation at least on par with Acura's RDX.
