2002 BMW X5 SUV 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Now for the rest of the story...

Sports pkg...Don't ask for a rotation
because tires smaller than front.
Darn expensive tires with less wear
than normal. As a result you
get "cupping" which creates road noise
after 1/2 life of tire.

Electrical...Bulbs go out like crazy.
Lost Pixels in the lcd displays had to
have element replaced
window silinoid (sic)...I have had 2
replaced. You sort of get used to
the "gunshot" sound when the windows
drop for no reason at all. Won't roll
up until silinoid is replaced.
Don't plan on getting good service if
you live in DFW. There isn't a dealer
in Dallas that seems to care about
your business. Are you listening
Huzanga? or John Roberts?


Best Features

Hey this is a BMW forget about the loud airconditioning and enjoy the feel of the road! This is a sports car not a luxury vehicle. If you can just afford your payments, this car is not for you! Fast and fun to drive! Great tow vehicle. Long trips? Drive the Lexus LX470


Worst Features

Keep your looks and style. Follow the Japanese on reliablity and Rd noise.

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


Review

I bought this car new and it was great
until the 50k mile warranty expired.
That's when onboard computer readout
started to go bad... just the start of
one big headache. The resale is awful
on this car. Also, car had a noise that
the dealer was never able to fix. Goes
thru the oil, fast. Maybe I just got a
lemon.


Best Features

Good ride, tight steering box. Sturdy. Sharp design.


Worst Features

Get rid of the stupid computer readout, just one more thing to go bad and have to dole the cash out to fix.

Review

Been a Ford Chevy man all my life but the wife liked
the X5 and to repent for all my fishing and golf
trips, and to keep taking them, I reluctantly agreed
to buy har an X5. Mistake!!! I'm married to a
BMWer Junkie! She loves it and wouldn't have
anything else! I too have come to like it more than
I'll admit to her. The handling in terrible weather is
awsome, and the power is unbelieveable. The
brakes are the biggest and best I've ever seen. The
car has to be one of the safest ever made.


Best Features

The raw power and handling are second to none.


Worst Features

BMW needs to quit using SAV instead of SUV. Some of their competition uses that fact in their claims to be the best, fastest, safest, etc. I would like to see them install the thumb control transmission as on other models. How about an X6, or X7?

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.
