I wish the test drive would have given me more insight. I hate the steering. Too hard to turn at low speeds and so tight when on the hwy. that I feel like I am all over the road. I am worn out after driving this car. Always something coming on with the sensors. Now the camera is malfunctioning and there is nothing in idrive to help and nothing in the car manual. I do not like the idrive system. Takes your attention off the road too much. I constantly bump it if I am using the cup holder from the passenger seat. I absolutely HATE the unlock button in the middle of the car! why aren't they on each front door like most cars. Also if you are going to be able to unlock and have a push button start.... the design would have been better not to have to insert it into the car. Not sure if there are keyless entries with codes available as we purchased this used but I really don't like having to have the key with me.... of course, I couldn't leave it in the car then as it would open for anyone! The automatic lift gate is nice but why can't you close it from the driver's seat. VERY inconvenient when you are used to being able to do that....... the seats are very hard and not comfortable for long trips.... An hour in and I hate it. I totally regret purchasing this car. Wish I had kept my 2008 Lincoln MKX. Who knew..... I think sometimes people want BMW for status and it isn't about that for me.
