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


Now for the rest of the story... Sports pkg...Don't ask for a rotation because tires smaller than front. Darn expensive tires with less wear than normal. As a result you get "cupping" which creates road noise after 1/2 life of tire. Electrical...Bulbs go out like crazy. Lost Pixels in the lcd displays had to have element replaced window silinoid (sic)...I have had 2 replaced. You sort of get used to the "gunshot" sound when the windows drop for no reason at all. Won't roll up until silinoid is replaced. Don't plan on getting good service if you live in DFW. There isn't a dealer in Dallas that seems to care about your business. Are you listening Huzanga? or John Roberts?

Best Features

Hey this is a BMW forget about the loud airconditioning and enjoy the feel of the road! This is a sports car not a luxury vehicle. If you can just afford your payments, this car is not for you! Fast and fun to drive! Great tow vehicle. Long trips? Drive the Lexus LX470

Worst Features

Keep your looks and style. Follow the Japanese on reliablity and Rd noise.
