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.
Handling, quality build, appearance
inside and out.
More comfortable (softer) head-rests.
More CD controls on the radio
(especially to change discs). Shouldn't
need temperature control wheel on the
dash when the HVAC is in "Auto" mode.
You shouldn't have to help it, if it's
supposed to be automatic.
