Review

I have enjoyed this car from day one, and over a year later, still love it. I initially test drove the Acura MDX (several times), and even had a deposit on one. I drove the X5 once, and immediately canceled my MDX order. It handles like a dream, has enough pep off the line, and the major components are of quality build. People always comment on the heaviness of the doors upon first entering, and there is an overall "sturdy" feel.

Review

most comfortable and best handling suv i've ever driven. also the most unreliable and poorest quality built vehicle i have ever owned. just got car back again after 8 days in the shop to have steering rack replaced (at 18,000 miles) and now doors will not open from inside. everytime the car goes in for service comes back with more problems.

Review

I have had a very poor experience with this vechicle. It has spent most of its time in the repair shop, with a wide range of problems. I would not recommend the 2001 version to anyone.

Drives like a car with the added bonus of a suv. I wouldn't recommend going off road, but who does anymore?

Review

Purchased a fully loaded X5 3.0 September 2002 and could not be happier. This vehicle is well crafted and very powerful. Test drove the MDX and was not impressed with handling and design compared to the X5. Highway and local driving is an absolute pleasure. Interior design is carefully thought out and comfortable. This is a great SAV!

Great SAV. Handles like a sports cars. Great response with no tip over fear. Front seats are very confortable but back seats should be improved.

Review

Great transportation. An SUV that handles like a sports car. Have 3.0 engine with 5 speed manual...performance and 21 MPG is outstanding. Sure footed in the rain and snow. Brakes are superior. I've owned 20 + or - different vehicles an dthis is hands down the best, and it only gets better as the miles rack up.

The ultimate worst vehicle

Review

X5 simply quit running on the interstate today for the third time in 2 months. Fuel sensor and fuel pump problems before but I think this time it's something else. Several workmanship issues still crop up: rear hatch pops open, window seals fall off, interior light pop out of fixture. Consumer Report rates this X5 as a "Worst" used vehicle.

Sports package comfortable only for the one in the driver's seat. The rest of passengers "Suffer".
