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


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


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

I have had basically good experience with my X5. I am a sport driving enthusiast and this is my family and commuting vehicle. As an SUV only the price for the functionality is kind of high. But, I like to drive. This one has the sport package. Basically, I gave up nothing in the fun to drive and handling areas to have the utility of an SUV like vehicle. It is fine to drive, unlike the wallowing beasts that other makers put out as SUVs. I hope I can drive this until the wheels fall off.

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


Review

Great driving vehicle. Terrible electronics. Always something wrong. Automatic settings for seats, mirrors,etc. only work 50% of the time. Been back to several dealers many times - no one can fix it.


Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Great handling, especially on curvey roads.


Suggested Improvements

Get the electronic features corrected or don't put them on the cars.

Review

After two years, I know we made the right decision. I only wished that we decided to purchase the X5 in lieu of the M CLass first. If you are looking for a SUV with performance and looks in one package, the X5 is the only one for you. If you are serious on buying the X5, dig a little more in your pocket and get the 4.4L since it offers more punch and standard equipment. If you add all the standards on the 4.4 compared to the options in the 3.0 for the same car, you will see that it is only a bit more. Believe me,you will not be disappointed!!! Happy driving!!!


Favorite Features

All the above


Suggested Improvements

Redesign the gas pedel, it is a bit cramped for a taller driver (me). Offer a X7 for more rear leg room and back room storage.
