Great small SUV package
By portland buyer on


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


Picked it up in Munich on the European delivery plan. Fantastic to drive in the Austrian and Slovenian Alps. Now driving it for normal U.S. city driving and it continues to be a pleasure. A very few, very minor issues: oddly placed cupholder on passenger side, for example. But have experienced none of the transmission problems others complain of, and the overall quality is high. This replaced an Acura TL. I liked the TL a lot, but like the X3 better.

Best Features

Great handling. AWD grabs the road. Unusually comfortable seating. Ride may seem a little stiff to some, but it's part of the road hugging style of the vehicle. Vehicle is very nicely fitted out.

Worst Features

Manuals are not user friendly. General manual refers you to sound system manual for how to set the time (not at all obvious from the buttons); that manual refers you back to the general manual. Manual index is confusing as well - often hard to find what you're looking for.
