2001 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought the vehicle new in 2001 and ordered the special Mahogany metalic paint. My wife is the main driver and she loves it. It is powerful and agile and handles like a automobile. We have had a little problem with the electrical in the lights. The front side lamps and the back tail lights seem to have a problem. Other than that we are very satisfied.


Best Features

Heated seats, V-8 engine,The Mahogany metalic color,the handleing and ride. The safety features are a plus.


Worst Features

The electrical system needs improving. I can't see any fault with the vehicle.

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

Awesome car but it is time to go. I have loved owning and driving the X5 4.4i but it is time to go. After 3 yrs and 37m miles...I have a number of recurring problems. I have been in the shop 6 times this year and i am currently waiting for another service apointment. The electrical system is horrible and I feel like I am always on the verge of the next disaster. It is a wonderful car to drive...but I would wait until BMW gets a better grasp on the electrical problems.


Best Features

V8 makes the car a blast to drive.


Worst Features

Very unreliable after 30m miles. Poor storage. Front cup holders are useless and poorly placed. Metallic finish on inside door handles flaked off in the 1st year. Electrical system is a disaster.
