Drives great, but requires extensive upkeep
2005 BMW X3 3.0i
Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed owning this vehicle. The tight steering, acceleration, and brake make for a comfortable driving experience, and the interior of the car is quite nice. I live in a mountainous region, so having a great deal of control over the car for sharp turns and snowy or rainy weather conditions is wonderful. (and the heated seats are quite effective in the winter!) The largest issue that I have had is the constant need for repairs. I am, admittedly, hard on my car, and put a lot of miles on them, but even still, I have owned the vehicle for a few years now, and have had to take it in for repairs quite a few times. Thankfully, most of these have been more minor issues that still allow the car to be driveable, but that doesn't mean they were cheap. I have had a leak in my windshield washer fluid line, the mechanisms to roll both back windows break, a battery die and require replacement, and a leak in the roof.
