Vehicle

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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Handling in snow conditions and overall ride qualities for an SUV.

Suggested Improvements

Hope the current vehicles have been improved upon since their initial introduction; current experience will preclude my purchasing another X5; needs larger trunk capacity.
