Best buy
Source: Edmunds

...3.0i with sport package and manual 6-speed. Great car to drive in mountain spins, highway and also in city.
Sport pack suspension makes car very fast to drive.
Winter driving with studded Nokian HKPL4 is fun and safe.
28 mpg/55 mph, 25 mpg/72 mph highway, and 21 in city, thanks to the manual.
Trunk eats 3 person weekend luggages, big emmaljunga & Graco city strollers + hunting staff, everything under cargo space cover same time - I have tried same with volvo xc70 with poor success:-))...

#2
Bulletproof qaulity and reliability with performance and styling to match!
Source: MSN Autos

...Pros: Sweet styling and performance to match. Will
make all of your BMW X3 and Lexus 330 friends jealous with envy Cons: May cause accidents due to rubber neckers looking at your car Overall: Awesome quality,
styling and performance all in one package...

Best SUV I've ever driven

..."I own a BMW X3 myself, and I can tell you that it has a great performance, I love it?s exterior design. Perfect for long trips."...

Franks car

...an absolute pleasure to drive and the navigation system will get you anywhere you want to go. Plenty of power in the engine and response is immediate when needed to make a quick pass...

SUV with sports car handling!
Source: Cars.com

..."I would rec'd the 3.0 liter with the 6 speed manual for optimal performance.
I got mine as CPO and nothing I have driven has been so much fun to drive with the cargo room.
You can fly past most cars and still have AWD to handle the corners.
Only drawback is that the pedal room is a little tight for a man. I have 12 shoe and I would like a little better room. Dealership has been great."...

#6
Bad from Infiniti
Source: MSN Autos

...Overall: Terrible Quality, not worth the money you are paying for.
I have owned this car for a couple months and am already selling it. I have targetted the all new BMW X3 and want to replace this infiniti with it...

I'm going to miss it.
Source: Cars.com

...This was a 2.5 engine which I was warned about not having enough punch but it was perfectly adequate and I don't think it's necessary to spend the extra for 3l plus to sit in NY's traffic anyway. It navigates NY's third world standard of road conditions admirably and is skinny enough to nip through gaps other SUV's just sit and gawp at. The interior is excellent in fit quality and comfort. My only niggles are that the diagnostic coughed at around 3,000 miles which led to a dud engine and a visit to the dealers. The audio system is anaemic with not enough bass, and the a/c could be cooler at...

OWNER

..."THE VEHICLE HANDLES LIKE A bmw SHOULD. HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH THE MOONROOF SINCE I BOUGHT IT.
AND BMW CAN'T SEEM TO CORRECT IT. THE RIDE AND INTERIOR ARE NOT UP TO WHAT YOU WOULD EXSPECT IN A CAR in THIS PRICE RANGE."...

#9
Where's the cream filling?
Source: Edmunds

...Strongly built vehicle with nice exterior design. Great acceleration in first but lags in higher gears (with automatic)and the engine is loud.
Interior is downright chintzy (except for the sport seats). Visability is excellent. Holds the road exceptionally well. Nice cargo space and rear seats fold down flat and easily...

#10
Used purchase
Source: Edmunds

...Was ready to buy either new Rav4 or CRV for wife who requires all wheel drive, but really wanted X3.
Found used vehicle at reasonable price with 30K mi.
All around better quality (currently own 21 yr old 528e and 33 yr old 2002). Consider to be much better vehicle used than new Rav4 or CRV! X drive is unbelievable!...
