Great design - poor build quality
By deniska on
2003 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
My X5 (2003, 3.0L V6) has been great for the first 2 years, but then literally started to fall apart. During the next 2 years I had ~45 visits to the certified dealers to repair constantly failing electrical equipment. Locks, censors, numerous bulbs, dash board panel, electrical mirrors, alarm system are just a few of the problems that the car had during 2 year period. All repairs were covered by warranty, but the car spent more than 60 days in repair shop. Finally I got tired of constant problems and sold it.
Solid handling at high speeds (drives more like a car, rather than SUV); great looks.
Make is more reliable!!! Current build quality is a joke!
