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!!!
All the above
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.
I love everything about this SUV.
Except for its electronics. I have
winter, sport, navigation, dsp ... etc.
I have 30K on this SUV, and so far it's
been a disappointment. My passenger
sideview mirror fell off, my door does
not open and close at times, windshield
special wipe doesn't work properly,
radio/dsp doesn't work (NO SOUND!!!)
Doors, warning flasher, reading lamps
comes on for no reason when driving.
2002 X5! What a disappointment! Don't
buy this SUV!
Looks great, drives great, solid!
Fix the G**damned electronics!!! X5
electronics is horrible.
Fast and good handling as long as the
road is bone dry. Slides on wet roads
even with anti skid. Snow is the
worst. Doors and windows freeze shut
in sub freezing weather. Locking
system is impossible. Pieces of
molding fall off. No where near worth
the high cost.
Find a way to keep it on the road.
Stop it from freezing in cold weather,
it is sssuppose to be a cold weather
