At 6' 5" tall it's not easy to find a vehicle I'm comfortable in. The X3 is an exception. There's plenty of leg and hip room and the seat adjusts enough to make it very comfortable for long trips. The gear select is odd and takes some getting used to, Consumer Reports even mentions it, but the rest of the electronics are easy to use. It's been a great car/SUV/crossover so far.
BMW X3 Much Better than Lexus RX 350.
2007 BMW X3K. Raywill - Perry, OH06/30/2015
Love the X3. Great in snow, sporty, fun to drive, extra large sunroof, great visibility from back-window, good for hauling mulch and other things for my yard, easy access for the dogs to hop inside, comfortable heated leather sports seats. Bought a 2010 Lexus RX350 a month ago. The Lexus doesn't come close to the BMW and I'm definitely regretting the change.
This is my 3rd BMW X3 - they're wonderful
2014 BMW X3Chris Z - Washington, DC06/14/2016
Super versatile vehicle that can tow trailers, load bikes/kayaks/canoe on roof, seats fold down to fit tons of stuff in the vehicle. And when you're not pushing the X3 by transporting things, you can get anywhere in absolute comfort and plenty of amenities on the way. You'll never get stuck in the snow or ice with the killer traction control and AWD - I've hooked up tow chains and pulled other AWD SUVs out of the snow. If you want a comfortable, capable, and reliable SUV that can handle everything and look good doing it, this is it. And in addition to all that, it's a BMW so it drives like a beast...
