I have owned 6 different 3s and bought the suv for my wife because she wanted a suv.
I have had good luck with my other BMWs but this X5 was the worst thing I have ever owned. It does have power and does drive more like a sports car then a suv but the thing was the worst built car I have ever owned. Everything that could go wrong has.
I had a few friends that worked at the dealership and they told me they are junk but I already had purchased it and was stuck with it. After I started having problems I did some googleing and found tht everyone has the same problems. I am
about to post it on craigslist for parts. I will never own another BMW. Crappy service too.
