I have had my X5 for 4 months now and
have put 9000 miles on it. I have had
no mechanical problems and have been
impressed with how nice it is to drive
in town and on the highway. I have a
couple of little glitches, bad wiper
blade on rear wiper and a piece of the
ceiling liner not tucked perfectly into
the overhead console. I think that BMW
has a tendency to overdesign its cars
but this doesn't necessarily result in
the best reliability. If you want the
least amount of trouble generally a
Japanese vehicle is the best choice. If
you want safety, solidity, and by far
the best driving experience buy BMW.
That's what the X5 is about.
Driving pleasure, great cruiser,
smooth, excellent stereo, tailgate is
very convenient, trick auto wipers and
reclining rear seats.
More power, ability to turn off all
interior lights with one button,
trailer hitch should be standard.
