What a great car. Very responsive and
fun to drive. The all-wheel drive
system provides very solid
manueverability and handling in turns.
Both interior and exterior fit and
finish are outstanding. My experience
with the dealer was also very positive.
This SAV is truly a truck wrapped in
luxurious clothing. I have thoroughly
enjoyed getting to know this vehicle.
It has lots of power, a nice stereo
system, and quality construction. Would
recommend for those who desire to be
among the best on the road in any type
Quietness of the interior; BMW styling;
the Xenon lights are fabulous; and the
spare key is fully functioned!
Move the hazard lights button to
another location. Too easily activated
if a woman is digging in her purse. The
turn signal is noisy but provides good
excuse to turn up the radio! Also, add
an adjustable accelerator pedal.
The 2001 X5 3.0 I own has been the best
Suv I've owned and they include
pathfinders, Durangos, Explorers and
Escalades. The blend of Size and
performance reminds me more of a five
series sedan then a SUV. It could use a
bit more cargo capacity but I have more
then adapted to that. Ride comfort is
excellent and the power and handling on
the highway are outstanding. I compared
the Mercedes, Land Rover and Lexus
before purchasing and was more
impressed by the Style, price and
performance of the X5

This vehicle is the smoothest road car
we have ever owned. It is far
superior to anything designed in
Detroit. I am considering buying a
second to use on my daily commute.
Fuel mileage is not as good as I wish
it was, but comfort and reliability
make up for this slight weakness. The
car is a bit expensive to maintain,
but we are very happy with it.
