2001 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Mine was built on a Friday before Oktoberfest I think. Had nothing but problems as well as several design flaws. Such as:1) Steering wheel electronics subject to shorting.2) Software issue: Mirrors go down in reverse and then don't come up. 3) Back hatch is not a tight fit. 4)The Shades in the back windows latch to a cheap latch that breaks. 5) The Rear neck supports block your rear view mirror. 6) The side mirror are way too small. 7) Ride is lousy with the Sport Package. 8) Known battery issue where in dash CD drains the battery. As well as Engine fan. Bottom line - Worst Vehicle I have had since my 1976 Cutlass.
