This Is The Best Suv I've Driven! — Best in its class, awesome drive, smooth and car like handling. It is really the ultimate handling machine!

Owner for 1 years, 0 months

Pros: Sets the bar for all the SAV, superb and smooth handling, very agile and best of all sleek design inside and out.

Cons: More cup holders, and maybe a better sound system

Love/hate Relationship — Research before purchasing, make sure your income will be able to cover cost of repairs. I had a lifestyle change to having to retire on disability and the car I love is draining all my savings, boo hoo.....buyer beware as usual.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love my BMW

Cons: HATE the cost of maintenance and how frequently something is always going wrong.

Great Car — boy boy boy what a car a suv with sport suspension and 3 types of transmission. I always drove this one in sports tiptronic . 70 mpg on small nc country roads. great car. had it as a company lease working for bmw at a great price. this one pulls you in your seat when pressing accelerator, and tiptronic reacts very fast. i got stopped by a anonymous cop car driving the first 10 miles. was doing 70 in 45 zone without touchng the accelerator

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: performance and sports appearance. Drove the car when we commuted 8 hrs /week to NC. Loved the performance and the handling

Cons: plastic trim in back seat door , not enough luggage space, hard (too hard for wife) suspension.

Approach With Caution. — I love this car when everything is working but @ 147k there is always a light on somewhere. Overall I'm okay having only paid $13,500 with 88k. I have had no major repairs, just irritating ones. Stuff I would never see fail on my '98 Lexus GS400.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks. Handling. Comfort

Cons: Window regulators. Heating/Cooling

Family Car Ranked 2007 Lexus RX 350 worse.
"Has Room to move around and have your own leg and head space big cargo area for packing and moving heavy loads but will cost you the tranny in the long run."
Would Buy Ranked 2007 Lexus RX 350 better.
"This car no matter the year rather it be 2001 or 2007 is very easy to fix and very simple to deal with it doest take much to fix or customize and ist costly to own if i had to choose between any bmw products over any Lexus products i will choose Lexus or any other brand then bmw these cars are no longer built correctly and highly over rated run as fast as you can from (B)rake (M)y (W)allet and never never own these cars if so have a back up car just in case never again looking fwd in nothing with those 3 letters next to each other again."
