Take a long test drive

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

Review

Purchased the X5 because it had the most headroom of any of the BMWs. Found the seats very uncomfortable and after a few 1000 miles, can confirm the criticism that the car lacks storage space. (The twin cup holder in the center console, which holds one cup of coffee, is a joke as demonstrated by the fact that there is now an after- market cup holder being sold for the X5.) Airbag light came on after 2,000 miles but am optimistic problem will be easily solved. Make certain you are comfortable with an SAV that is for carrying passengers, not stuff.

Great SUV, And it Goes Offroad

I really liked this SAV. I had a 2000 Land Rover Disco II before this one. It was great off road and looked sharp, but lacked handling, breaking, speed, and road comfort the BMW has. I have pull trailers with the BMW and gone off road. Don't be afraid to do so. Just don't climb over any boulders. Otherwise, its 4WD system is great and can handle most areas. I also like the gas mileage.

X% a bummer and NOT a bimmer

Review

The X5 looks great and performs well during the first year. However, the vehicle does not keep "chuggin" like the other BMS's I owned. This one is a true American car. All the platic pieces start failing at 25,000 miles and the brakes, transmission and AC fail at less than 30,000 miles. BEWARE! The X5 is not really a BMW. It's good looks hide faulty workmanship.

Very enjoyable to drive. Owned for a little over 2 weeks. Very responsive, and effortless climbs uphill.

Review

Seriously looked at the M320 before a friend recommended that I check out the X5. Never really noticed it before and that's because so few of them are on the road. Started researching and went to the dealership to check it out. It's was love at first sight. Had to have this car. After the longest two months, drove it the first day nonstop for 6 hours straight! Unbelievable! Looks and finish are like no other on the road with the exception of the new 7 series. Handling and safety features are also like no other. In addition, it's an attention getting for sure (even from M drivers!) and truly a blast to drive which is surprising with a car this size and weight!

Nice Ride

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

Review

I have had my X5 for 4 months now and have put 9000 miles on it. I have had no mechanical problems and have been impressed with how nice it is to drive in town and on the highway. I have a couple of little glitches, bad wiper blade on rear wiper and a piece of the ceiling liner not tucked perfectly into the overhead console. I think that BMW has a tendency to overdesign its cars but this doesn't necessarily result in the best reliability. If you want the least amount of trouble generally a Japanese vehicle is the best choice. If you want safety, solidity, and by far the best driving experience buy BMW. That's what the X5 is about.

3.0 X5

Review

Amazing handling and a joy to drive. Drives like a car and hugs the road. Have driven Japanese and American models and this car by far is the best. A bit pricey but worth every penny (for now) until the competition makes a SUV that looks and handles like this X5. Occasional electrical gremlin will show up but so far nothing I can duplicate to get fixed.

Not a real BMW

Review

This SUV is ideal for people who prefer fine looks,elevated view of the road and allwheel drive system. but this isn't for BMW or driving enthusiasts because it really isnt' a typical BMW. It's also built in America.

Of all SUV's the X5 is above and beyond. I call it a high riding sedan, there's nothing truck-like about it in that it gives a smooth ride and handles curves well.
