"I used to make fun of my friends who LOVED their BMW's, and now I'm one. I love my X3! It's fun to drive, it's comfortable and it's cute (ok it's a good looking car)! I drive about 35-40K miles a year and this is BY FAR the most comfortable car I've ever had. I can drive for hours and my back doesn't hurt. It has great acceleration and steering, just lots of fun to drive. The only downside is that it has had to go to the shop several time for minor things. Yes minor, but things that you wouldn't expect to go wrong with a BMW. The center vent came loose (twice), the headliner came loose, little things--but still. And the gas mileage is ok. About 23 on the road. All in all, I love the car and would highly recommend it! But buy the extended warranty!"

"Bought this 2007 BMW X3 in 2010 with 25,000 miles and today had Level 2 service at 71,000 miles. I have not had a single problem in the 50,000 miles I have driven the car. The car is still tight, suspension shows very little sign of wear, brakes have been magnificent (5 on front and 4 on rear... 5,000+ miles left?) and engine loves to rev! Oil consumption has never been an issue between service intervals (18,000 miles for me). Only negative has been that transmission at times will rev to 4,000 rpm going uphill in 3rd (?) gear before up shifting...I say "hunting for power". When I bought the BMW, I said I would trade it in when the extended warranty and maintenance contract expires 8 months from now...but this car has EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS!"
