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
I purchased a predriven X5 and love
it. The quality and reliability of BMW
afforded me the confidence to by a pre
driven car and not have the worry.
I came out of a van and was ready for
a luxury car but wanted the style of
an SUV. I will keep this car for a
The way it drives and handles on the
More leg room in the back seat. Cargo
space could be larger.
