Review

Lots of mfg/assembly quality bugs. rear lid pops opne when it rains/cold, Doors freeze easily and you cant keep them closed when they do. Poor handling in linited snow conditions Vehicle doesn't always start on first turn of key(fails 7/10 times) Power Windows fell off runners had to have service fix them but they diod a poor kob at removing/reinstalling door panels Alarm system goes off when it is hot out Window shades break easily Navigation system can only be shut down by shutting down the car. No SW control to turn off system. Note I have spoken to at leastthree other owners and they have experienced 95% of these same issues

Best SUV on the road

Review

The BMW X5 is the best looking SUV on the road. It also performs and handles great and gets better gas mileage than I expected. The interior is beautiful and just the right size for me, that is carrying light to moderate loads.

Review

I was never a big fan of BMW until now. My 2003 X5 is an excellent vehicle. It is fun to drive - it feels like a sports car but has much more room. The only draw-back is its capacity to carry any substantial payload.

Review

Get behind the wheel of this beauty and you'll never want to park. The steering is so tight and the handling so precise that you'll feel like you're ready for the track. The X5 is a thing of beauty from all angles, and the quality and rigidity are top notch. It's got all the handling qualities of a 5 series, but with better traction and a commanding view of the road.
