Model rushed to market without adequate testing in my opinion.Good in
snow; HVAC wheel controls replaced; door handle replaced due to peeling;
ball joints replaced after 20,000 miles (car never driven off road) to correct
cluncking noise; followup service necessary to replace bushings as well.
This is unacceptable premature front end failure for a vehicle designed for off
road use..Cabin fairly quiet.
Handling in snow conditions and overall ride qualities for an SUV.
Hope the current vehicles have been improved upon since their initial
introduction; current experience will preclude my purchasing another X5;
needs larger trunk capacity.
