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

Review

Our 2001 4.4 X5 is the "Ultimate driving machine". We love everything about it except... It has electrical gremlins in it. The dash warning lights come on and off all the time, indicating the need to check rear and brake lights. We take it to the dealership, they replace what is broken, if the check lights are actually still on when we get to the dealership and we go home. Some time a few days later, it happens again.. Check rear lights etc... Consumer reports rates the 2001's electrical system very poor. Newer models are much improved.

Best Features

Power power power. The 4.4 V8 in the X5 has incredible power and handles great. The GPS is a nice touch also. My wife loves the seat heaters.

Worst Features

I think BMW has fixed the electrical problems I have been having. The newer models don't seem to be having the same problems. The cupholders in the front could use some reworking to make them a little more functional for 2 cups.
