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.

affordable and economical midsize SUV

2005 BMW X3

I love the look and drive of my X.3. The sunroof is fantastic along with the space inside the vehicle. The interior on this particular model was cheaply done it's not quite leather but excellent if you have kids because it just wipeds clean. The seats are extremely comfortable and the navigation is very easy to use. my car is an absolute tank in the snow the all wheel drive is phenomenal. I have 85,000 miles on my vehicle and I have had to replace the back window regulator along with the transfer case they were both made of cheap plastic. All in all I would definitely recommend this vehicle .

One best detail about the X3 is that is the best SUV out there!

2005 BMW X3 3.0i

The BMW X3 model is an ultimate warrior machine. It drives through anything LITERALLY with confidence. The dashboard are so user friendly and elegant. The seats have so many different features that I never experience before to help support anyone with back pains along with heating system for those cold long months. The sunroof is amazing to enjoy a beautiful for a sunny day. Lastly, the ACTUAL performance of the vehicle speed wise and fuel is the best. 17 to 20 liters for fueling which would last for about 250 miles.
