Overall:

I think its an excellent vehicle. Fun to drive and powerful. I also think it would be an expensive car to own. BMWs are known to be expensive to repair, and this one already has some issues. The only car Ive driven similar to the X3 was a Honda CR-V. The BMW is noticeably tighter and more responsive. As I said, an excellent vehicle - just out of my financial reach.

2006 BMW X3 Review

Love this car! Great CAR! The only con is the panoramic sunroof. It becomes unaligned and the back window stays stuck up. But there are videos out there you can watch on how to fix this yourself and save money.

Bmw X3 Will Not Disappoint — This car is incredibly fun to drive. With 240 HP, it accelerates nicely and can climb hills like no other. Great for driving in the mountains! The handling could not be better. The traction control keeps you from getting into trouble when you need it.

Pros: Fun to drive.  Great handling.

Cons: Tends to slip sideways when taking ramps in wet conditions.  The ride is a bit bumpy due to the stiff suspension.

Bmw - X3: The Utlimate In Comfort, Safety, Sportiness And Versatility! — Incredibly comfortable for a family, for short trips or long travel. Lots of space to haul gear. Great power, and handles like a car. Very safe, with AWD, lots of airbags and other features. Beautiful on the inside and out. I love the leatherette seating - easy to wipe clean, great to the touch, doesn't get too hot or cold, with heated seats for winter comfort! Great tuck-away storage compartments to keep organized. Very maneuverable in traffic and parking lots - tight "turn radius" for parking. BMW thought of every comfort, safety, and convenience, and packed it all into a fun, sporty, and versatile package! The ultimate driving machine.

Pros: Panoramic sunroof opens to the sunny sky or starry night.  Heated leatherette seating is comfortable and easy to keep clean.  AWD, airbags everywhere - provides peace of mind knowing my family is safe.  BMW packed so many features into this vehicle; it's the swiss-army knife of SUV's!

Cons: Being a German import, the cost of repairs and maintenance is a little higher.  But it's worth it to have such a fantastically engineered vehicle!

Awesome All Around Vehicle. — A excellent allyear round vehicle. Plenty of room, decent fuel economy, great looks and fun to drive. For the money, it is a great all around everyday vehicle. If you want a vehicle to handle anything that mother nature can throw at you, this is the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sports sedan handling and performance in a sport utility 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Cons: Nothing

Bmw X3 3.0i — It's a great little SUV or SAV as Bimmer likes to call them. It drives like any other BMW which is saying it's the "Ultimate Driving Machine". Not sure about that, but having owned a few and driven many. They are great! The 3.0i engine could use a little more HP, but the plus side is, I don't have to worry about turbo maintenance someday. Overall, it another great BMW.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great styling and power.

Cons: Bad fuel economy.

My X3 Review — Great as a daily driver, can haul tons of stuff around, and great in the snow. This SAV is pretty agile to be an SAV, but then again it is a BMW. If taken care of the right way this car ill last forever.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Space

Cons: not much for what it is
