Awesome SUV, but Quality SUCKS

2001 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
Review
Dear BMW, Please build your next X5 line with two major changes: 1: Do something about the terrible build quality. I have owned mine for almost 3 years now, and it's been in the shop about once every 2 months (or more often) the whole time. The worst incident was when it took your dealership's repair folks THREE separate attempts to fix my leaking radiator expansion tank (and I may be about to make a 4th trip to get it fixed AGAIN). 2: Make the damn thing 6 inches longer, and put all the extra space in the cargo area (and btw, offer a 3rd row seat while you're at it).
Favorite Features
Handles better than most cars; performance very good; braking; stereo (w/CD changer); heated seats; safety systems & features.
Suggested Improvements
A Nav System that takes less time to calculate directions for a destination than the time it takes me to drive there (i.e. DVD based and use something faster than the 286 processor or whatever junk is in there).
