Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This compact SUV hits the mark. If you check the right boxes, it comes with all the goodies that make sense. Nannies are not available. You'll have to pay attention when changing lanes and parking. In most respects this is a typical BMW, a driver's car. We picked up the X1 at the BMW factory in Munich and drove it 1850 miles all over Europe at typical euro speeds, often greater than 100 mph. The X1 was quick powerful steady and quiet. Average mpg per the computer came out at approximately 29 mpg. Phenomenal."

Pros: "Fun to Drive, Great Handling, Gas Mileage"

Cons: "Metallic Paint seems to be a bit "fragile""

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Fun to Drive, excellent gas mileage @ average of 27 MPG.The I Drive and controls take time to understand and get used to but once mastered they are excellent. Owner's manual needs some serious help, had to return to the dealership to have some items explained. Handling is excellent, power from a 4 cylinder engine is remarkable and comes on very quickly. The Start/Stop feature also takes some time to understand and utilize - fortunately can be overridden from the dash panel. Excellent navigation system and blue tooth connectivity. Most enthusiastic I have been about an auto since my Porsche Boxster S."

Pros: "It's a BMW and the handling is fun"

Cons: "Not peppy, poor reliability and comfort"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Poor gas mileage 21MPG...My SRX got better gas mileage. Fuel efficient on/off technology is annoying. When you park, it turns off everything but the radio and you have to turn it on then off again. Brakes had to be replaced less than 1000 miles. iDrive had to be replaced at 4000 miles and was not covered under warranty due to moisture. Ridiculous design when iDrive is situated on the console between 2 cup holders. Interior is cheap compared to other $44K SUVs. Inside is small for an SUV in this class when you consider the poor gas mileage. There are bigger luxury SUV's with nicer interiors and same or better gas mileage with better reliability like the Lexus and Cadillac for the money. All you're buying is the BMW name."
