What a disappointment.

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


Review

After several luxury SUV's from other manufacturers I thought I would try the BMW. What a mistake that was. At first the X5 was a joy to drive. Now that I have owned it for several months it is in the shop more than on the road. The fact that it has incurreds some problems that needed fixing doesn't upset me. It is the pitiful attitude and lack of understanding from the service department that I have trouble with.

Review

Absolutely tops in build quality and style, my X5 is exceptional. Not only will the German engineering and quality last for years, but the glamour quotient will as well. Exceptional.

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


Review

The 4.4i X5 is the ultimate commuter SAV for the 21st century. Its tremendous acceleration and tight handling makes it one of the best performing SUVs. It tops the Mercedes ML class easily. The X5 can get out of ANY situation in the snow, from 2 inches to 3 feet, it is almost impossible to get this car stuck. The allwheel drive system is wonderful and makes the car stick to the road and travel deeper into corners than you thought possible for such a heavy car. If you don't mind spending the money, the X5 has the best combination of comfort, with a perfect seating position, and style, with sleak bodylines from every angle.

Review

This car has many fine features, wonderful build quality, comfortable seats, great handling, but ultimately it is a dissapointing way to spend $40k. The 5 series wagons are superior in every respect.

Great Car

Review

After I purchased this vehicle, I was really excited. It drives just like my 5 series and has the same wheelbase too. The sport suspension is a little rough, but worth it because you get all the extras. The 18" rims look great and so do the chrome exaust tips. This is an AWESOME vehicle and I would recomend that you go and test drive one at your local dealership.
