    2006 BMW X3

    Great Vehicle

    Pros: Miles per Gallon

    Cons: It sports the same steering wheel and controls as my old 1999 528i. In seven years they can't upgrade or improve?

    The X3 is comfortable, roomy in the front, and a great driver. I have read reports that the ride is harsh, but I don't feel it is bad at all. Steering is tight and responsive and the ride is what is expected from a small SUV. It is more a utility vehicle than luxury, but fit and finish is nice. Excellent gas mileage for it's class. I get as much as 27 on the highway, but average between 24 - 26. All around averaging 19-21. Can't beat that for the power it has from the 3.0l.

    2006 BMW X3

    EXCELLENT VEHICLE

    Pros: MOTOR SOUNDS LIKE A SPORTS CAR

    Cons: A LITTLE LOUDER IN CABIN AREA THAN A LUXURY VEHICLE

    THIS IS MY FIRST BMW AND IT HAS REALLY MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION UPON ME. THE X3 GAVE ME EVERYTHING THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR; POWER, ROOMY CABIN, SUV, GREAT GAS MILEAGE. IF YOU LIKE THE SMALLER SIZE VERSION OF AN SUV BUT STILL WANT ALL THE POWER THAT YOU COULD ASK FOR, TRY AN X3. IT'S MORE ON THE SPORTY SIDE WHEREAS THE X5 IS MORE LUXURY. AFTER DRIVING BOTH, THE X3 RIDES/DRIVES MORE LIKE A SPORTS CAR. LOVE MY BMW!

    2006 BMW X3 - Base

    Pros: The drive of the vehicle

    Cons: Right now I don't have any problems with the vehicle.

    Advice: Go for it! Its a great buy.

    My BMW was originally a lease by someone else. I am truly happy with my vehicle. It is in excellent shape, and the mileage on it is way below what I expected. Again, I love my BMW!

    2006 BMW X3 - Base

    Pros: Sport pkg/ Terracotta interior and Navigation

    Cons: nothing so far...

    Advice: Get the goodies!

    2006 X3 3.0i w/ sport pkg. drives better than our 2002 BMW 325i w/ sport pkg. Like being in the 3 series only higher seating position and more cargo room.
