10 years ago I was in a bad auto accident. Since that date I have taken notice of safe auto's. The X 5 might be the safest SUV on the road. Style and confort are great. 10 air bags. The gas milage is like most SUV's. The X 5 drives like the 530i. Great value and all wheel drive lets you go in the snow. Buy one, you won't be sorry, just broke.
