2008 BMW X3 Review
Bill says:
Heavier metal used to construct vehicle. Handles like a sedan and lives up to BMW reputation for handling, braking, ability to handle panic situations, 22 mpg around town. Interior - quality materials. No issues in 65K.

I Am Pleased With The Dealership I Chose And The Quality Of The Vehicle. — I love this vehicle, and am especially content with the warranty that bmw provides. The vehicle is comfortable, and the ammenities are practical and stylish. I can see myself buying another bmw in the future.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: warranty

Cons: cost, they are expensive, but you get what you pay for in life.

X3 -3.0si - Not Bad, Not Bad At All! — Much much better than the X3-2.5, X3-3.0 and X5-3.0. Better power for its size and handling feel like a bimmer (at last!) The old engine is not sufficient for the weight - and forget about X5-3.0... way too heavy for the old 3.0 engine! If you are going for the X5 - get the bigger enginee!

Pros: Power + handle

Cons: Price

Bmw X3 3.0si — For the 2008 BMW X3 3.0si, the shocks are great, gas mileage is pretty good for an SAV. I am loving the sportiness of it! Performance is excellent, braking system is advanced and handling is good. I do not like the brake dust on the rims. Overall, it is super fun to drive!

Pros: Shocks, sportiness, handling, braking system

Cons: Interior styling, brake dust

My X3 — I don't like where the unlock doors button is. It's in the middle of the dash board. Why not on the door where the window buttons are. It's ok, it's my wife's car and she loves it, and that my friends is all that matters. Hard ride. My little girl gets car sick when she's riding in it. Transmission sticks, not smooth driving.

Pros: Can't think of one.

Cons: The all door locks. transmission sticks. hard ride

Great car to drive very fast, but not comfortable for long trips. Cabin is not roomy although cargo space is decent in the back. Stiff seating and minimal leg room for rear seat passengers.

Back Seats Ranked 2016 Lexus NX 200t AWD better.
"Much more comfortable seating and more cabin space smoother ride and handling than the X3 - many more features are standard and other better options available for a better price point."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Lexus NX 200t AWD better.
"roomier cabin super comfortable seating "
