We must've been lucky...

We've now had our X5 for almost 2
years. We love it! I'm not sure what
the others, including Consumer Reports,
are talking about with all of their
problems. Since we've had our car, it
has NEVER been in the shop for any
problems except for service maintenance
(knock on wood). We love the the power
of the 3.0 and the gas mileage (around
450mi to the tank). It's a great car
to drive and being ranked #1 in safety
keeps me at rest in a world with some
irresponsible drivers. I agree with
all the positive comments in the other
posted messages (no need to repeat what
has already been said).
Acceleration, Handling, Safety
features, looks (inside and out), Sport

just about everything else!
Premium sound needs more juice! The
bass is very weak for having being
powered by an amp and for having 2
subs. Also, the rear seat could be a
little more comfy -- but, who cares?!
