Vehicle
2003 BMW X5 4.6is AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
Review
Bought new in 2003 and worked great when it was under warranty but everything went wrong when the car reached 50,000 miles this year. Cooling system is leaking everywhere, power steering is leaking fluid at bushings, parking distance control often stops working, and much more. It is a fun, comfortable SUV that is a blast to drive but compared to the last BMW we owned (a 1993 3 series) it is not very reliable ($5000+ in less than 10 weeks is unacceptable).
Favorite Features
Awesome engine, good acceleration and handling for an SUV, comfort on long drives, navigation system, good sound system, heated front AND rear seats, parking distance control (when it works).
Suggested Improvements
Reliability is horrible (particularly engine cooling system), parking distance control, disk changer in trunk, better spare tire would be nice(!), better fuel economy (yes I am serious).
