Vehicle2003 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewBought used with 20,000 Miles, Loved appearance inside and out. Immediately noted the AM/FM reception in Northern Minnesota was the worst of my experience with over 30 vehicles. Dealer denied there was a problem in 3 visits. Finally told me "95% of owners don't listen to AM anyways". Communications with corporate BMW were very poor. The person in NJ was experienced at deflecting complaints, but knew little about cars. Twice had engine problems under warranty where car blew black smoke out of exhaust. Now at 95,000 the dash displays are missing some digits and the fix is too expensive. One Key Fob is dead and you can't fix yourself, wheels are corroded, dealer experience has been poor.
Best FeaturesAppearance, Ride, Rear seat adjustment, rear seat climate control. handling MPG
Worst FeaturesVery poor sound system. Overly complex displays and need to take eyes off road. Plastic parts that fail. Exterior trim that fails. Rattles. Too Expensive brake replacement
