ReviewI love this car. It is without question the most fun SUV to drive on the market. If you've driven a Ford Expedition or the like, take an X5 for a test drive. If you are driving enthusiast, you'll never want to drive anything else. The handling is amazing in a vehicle of this type and weight. That being said, it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of build quality. Or let me just say that BMW X5 build quality can be summed up in two words: it sucks. If you buy a new one, do yourself a favor and get the longest extended warranty you can (100k miles, I believe)... that's assuming you plan to keep it that long.
Best FeaturesHandling, especially on twisty roads. Park distance control! V8 engine
Worst Features# 1 issue: make the cargo area larger by 6 inches! Have the German engineers spend some time learning about 'quality control' and 'build quality' from the Japanese. Why aren't the headrests powered like in the 5 series sedans?
