One car does it all
By Just me on
2002 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
After owning Land Rovers, Land Cruisers, we tried the new 4.4 X5 It drove like a performance car on highways and mountain roads. Yet, we have driven the X5 on the same off roads and forest trails, it handled them as well. Only limit, road clearance less than Land Cruisers, BUT, far more power, handling, braking. Best overall car we ever had. Solid quality, excellent finish.
Auto/manual shift, very precise, quick.
Solid progressive but very strong brakes.
Split tailgate, nice to sit on for snacks or change shoes, hauled many 8 foor trees to home, you can't do that in a full gate, everything falls off or drags on the pavement.
Red diodes giving time, temperature, gas mileage, fuel range, radio settings, very hard to see under Arizoba sun, must have been designed under cold fog conditions in Germany.
