Automobile mag readers voted the X3 best small SUV. Are they sniffing glue, or something ? This thing when paired with sport suspension exhibits the ride quality of a hay barn on wheels. Besides, a loaded copy costs as much as base X5. And needless to say, V6 FX will wipe the floor with it. So how come it never got the nod :evil: ?!

it does look like an izuzu from the back becuase its tall and narrow. definately does not have that wide agressive look like the FX

When I was in the market for a crossover I test drove the X3,RX, and of course the FX. Out of the the three the RX was the worst.


THe X3 does have a huge optional sunroof.

For the same reasons that MotorWeek's driver's choice is the Toolrag (opps, I mean Touareg): they are idiots! :evil:
"Toolrag"- that's so perfect... :!:
I prefer "toe rag", kinda like what you would use to wipe your feet on after running it over in your FX :firestarter:

I haven't taken a look at the X3 at the BMW dealership yet, although I do kind of like the looks of it. Much fresher design than the X5 which is already out of style.

I kind of see the X3 as more of a girl's car. Something I could see my sister driving but not me.

Gonna go and take a look sometime next week though.

Actually the proper pronunciation is........Toe rag.

You would also think that the mag's would look at the reliability history of the manufacturer as part of their assessment.

It has been available in some dealer's lots since early last December. That's when I first saw it.
ok, from the day it got to the dealer til the time the magzine was published was 8 or 12 weeks instead of 4. the issue remains, how can readers, with any degree of confidence, say something is the best, based on little if any exposure and no history?

it's one thing to have critical editors comparing vehicles side by side, but quite another for readers to vote on something that they are clueless about.
