2001 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
What can I say, besides the typical maintenance which needs to be performed at 60k, this car is a tank. Lots of room, classy look and performance to please any driver. I've test driven MB, Infiniti, VW, Audi, and even GM. All seem nice but what BMW has done here, no one else has done. Handling is the first you will notice after you drive the rest. Then comes the power and performance this SUV has. You think that BMW states 290 hp. Think again. I've taken 540s with my eyes closed. Some people just underestimate this SUV. Get this car and do the problematic maintenance that it needs around 60k and you will never regret it.
Engine sound and performance. Looks, and handling.
Better interior door handles, they tend to peel. And transmission info. What is it with this "Life Time" fluid? I just don't get why it is ok to never change the fluid. Other then that, great car for the money..
