Review

Love it. Best handling and most fun to drive SUV ever. I have test almost all of the luxury SUV's on an offroad test track and the BMW performed the best.


Best Features

The handling of this SUV on and off road is great.


Worst Features

could improve mileage. I would like to try the diesel that is avail only in Europe.

2002 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My first BMW at 12K ball joints replaced,emergiency brk replaced, radio died-water leaking inside. Never been able to get key to consistantly return seat to memory position. Drivers door frozen most Jan, Feb mornings, crawl in through back. HORRIBLE in snow, only good thing is DSC keeps you from sliding off into the weeds. Rain sensing works erraticly. 44K all new brakes incl front rotors, ball joints rattling again. Interior dr pull finish chipped. Do we really HAVE to agree to legalities EVERY time we start the car to use radio, nav system? Heated seats set to RUMP-ROAST.


Best Features

Nav system (except that you need a half dozen or more discs to cover the US and a small portion of Canada, cant get from CT to Pittsburgh, PA). Front and rear proximity alarm.


Worst Features

Its all about quality control, make it worth the extra expense to get that blue propeller on the hood!

Review

Shopped for an X5 for months. Didn't want to pay the $50,000 for a brand new so I found a 2002 X5 3.0 with only 17,000 miles on it. Extremely clean, hardly driven car. Have driven about 1,000 miles so far and have loved every minute. This is my second BMW (1997 328is) and they are by far the most amazing DRIVING cars in the world. The X5 lives for 80+ m.p.h. on the highway. 3.0 is plenty peppy off the start with plenty of torque but lacks some power at speed. No big deal though. Read all about the electrical problems in the 2001's which made me stay away from them. Paid $37,250 for a 2002 w/every option but NAVIGATION. (bought 7/10/04) w/17,000 miles


Best Features

"dancing" Xenon headlights at start up, comfort of seats, on-board computer, rear window shades, sport package with 18" wheels, safety features, performance at highway speeds, very solid/stable.


Worst Features

deeper storage compartment under center arm rest, better gas mileage.

Review

My 6th BMW. Best feature: EASILY the most comfortable ever for a a long drive (lumbar support seats are fantastic). Next, sedan handling and performance. I've achieved a better time than the 528i over my fav route of hiways and country roads. Most annoying feature: the AWFUL tinny noise when shutting the door. Biggest SMALL annoyance - unreliable warning LCD icons e.g. is a breakdown imminent or is it simply an icon fault (again). Great fit & finish but qual of BMW materials declines yearly (like others). Best was my '85 325E. Still luv 'em. I went to MB once(300 coupe). Soulless - a big mistake. MB briefly had my brain; BMW will always have my heart. Cor


Best Features

The whole package. There could be more trunk space, but why spoil the styling? For someone who has raced, rallied and hugely enjoyed driving for so long, this is an excellent compromise to slide gracefully into a fun retirement. When they fix the X3 interior I'll switch for more fun


Worst Features

Kill the tinny noise when shutting the doors. More reliability on icon warnings. Have comp calculate 'distance to empty tank' on more than just the last few kms.Better suspension over potholes. Slightly larger glove compartment. Cheaper BMW 'pho
