2001 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is the best car I have ever owned. I love to drive it. It goes so fast! It makes me feel like a race car driver. It is beautiful too. The only thing I would change if given the chance is the lack of a drink holder. There is one but it is really small. It is right in the center, behind the gear shift. It has a lid and use that compartment for storage of loose change.


Best Features

Woodgrain trim, leather seats, acceleration is awesome.


Worst Features

Only drink holders.

Review

I purchased a Certified Pre Owned X5, and I must say that I have only one regret. This car does not have the cargo space that I would have really needed. But the ride, the fuel efficiency, and the quality of the service that I receive when I go to the dealer has me hooked on BMW for life!


Best Features

It goes!


Worst Features

Improve Cargo space!

Review

Looks great but I am having a problem with it. 3 of the 4 windows has already stoped working and fixed. The cooling system got all messed up on the highway. I have to get it towed. Water pump, radiator, hoses, builts etc were shot. It cost me over $1800. They are telling me that it has a problem of overheating....what..? It seems that my SUV is in the shop every month. I lost a confidence in the car. Any one having a problem like this or it was just my luck..?


Best Features

It drives steady when runs...


Worst Features

You spend so much money to treat yourself with BMW...there shouldn't be that many expensive repairs so soon..

Review

I bought the bmw and was in love from the first time i rocketed away. The pick and top speed of (234 km/h) was great and this is the 3.0 liter. the braking is EXCELLENT and the turning great too! Overall you think you are in a sports car and the handling is stiff and reactionary. If you want a mean machine that can get you here to there in style and comfort then this is the year and the model to get , better on gas then the 4.4 and 4.6, 4.8 aswell. Holds its price too!


Best Features

overall car and back up tilting mirrors to see the curb


Worst Features

better response on the manual transmission gearing

Review

Bought it as a Certified Preowned with 25K on it. It is the most desirable SUV in its class. After several road trips with a baby, we like its safety features, ability to get places quickly and decent fuel mileage. There are some electrical gremlins that I can not duplicate for the dealer that only happen 20% of the time.


Best Features

Transmission is the smoothest and most "read your mind" operating unit that I have ever driven. It makes my Dad's RX300 feel like a Ford. Steering at any road speed is well weighted and precise. Much better than any other SUV on the market.


Worst Features

Some plastic interior parts seem cheap. Rear heat and air controls are just a "vent" with a fan speed.
