I would check on how the X3 depreciates compared to the other cars you are looking at. That small SUV in a luxury brand might be almost undesirable in the used car market as it gets older. It's a car that is real niche for a certain group of people and the cost of repairing it could cross it off people's lists as it gets older.I am thinking about buying a low mileage pre-owned BMW X3.. I am 6'3" , 240 and I don't fit into a lot of Japanese cars.. I drive long distances periodically (10 hours+) , and I haul my Bike during the season, May- September..
The X 3 fits me. And it seems reasonably priced compared to Lexus for example. Acura is uncomfortable, CRV just a box.. my next down is a Toyota Rav 4 with limited trim. Not quite as posh inside but serviceable.
Any comments to help me make a decision?
