2003 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I love driving the X5. I've actually had 2 of them and highly recommend paying up for the 4.4. I had major electrical problems with my first X5 that the dealership couldn't fix. The second one (4.4) has been perfect. The X5 has been recalled more than most SUV's.


Best Features

Engine, solid feel, drives like a European sedan, great stereo, looks great


Worst Features

More cargo room, work out kinks in electrical

2003 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Just an awesome driving and ownership experience (first 4 years of maintenance are included!). The ride is amazing as is the zippy acceleration. The interior is what you would expect from a first class manufacturer. Excellent styling and craftsmanship. Just a joy to drive.


Best Features

Power, handling, smoothness, the very solid feel


Worst Features

Could use a little more room in the back and better gas milage (at the time of this review SF Bay Area premium gas is $2.45/gal, and you must use premium gas in the X5) Nonetheless, I highly recommend the 4.4i version of the X5.

2003 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The first thing I noticed about driving this vehicle is how safe and secure you feel. One needs to set the cruise control during hiway driving to keep it under 90 miles per hour without realizing it! I like everything about it.


Best Features

Too many to mention.


Worst Features

Please don't change a thing.

Review

I'VE OWNED MANY LUXURY VEHICLES FROM JAGUAR TO CADILLAC TO BMW AND I'LL TAKE THE BM'ER OVER ALL OF EM! NOW THIS SUV IS EVERYTHING MY 5 SERIES WAS + ALL THE FEATURES OF A MID-SIZE SUV. CAN'T BEAT IT!


Best Features

STYLE, PERFORMANCE, LUXURY AND RELIABILITY.


Worst Features

BIGGER CARGO AREA IS ALL I WOULD SUGGEST.
