2004 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car's performance and design is stellar. The main drawbacks are the fuel economy and the interior styling and functionality compared to less expensive SUVs and cars. Performance on the highway is excellent with plenty of power at higher speeds. Cornering is solid, and the responsiveness is very good. There are a lot of blind spots towards the rear of the car and I have had (and heard from others) problems with the rear hatch closing properly and staying shut - ughh. AM radio is terrible, climate control is not very good, trip computer is slightly old technology that needs updating (e.g., trip timer, real time fuel economy, etc.)


Favorite Features

No question about it, it is the handling at highway speeds and its auto-leveling feature. This SUV drives like a car.


Suggested Improvements

Update the interior, a lot. A climate control that really works. Why BMW cannot make an AM radio worth a damn is beyond me. And, improve the functionality of the steering wheel controls.

2004 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Best looking SUV for this size on the market. 20" rims, super-wide low profile tires, deep exhaust tones make this combination unbeatable. Performance almost equal to my AMG Mercedes. Build quality unsurpassed. Cannot wipe the smile off my face when driving it. Purchsed the Imola Red so this is even more rare (everyone has black or silver). Handles so well I've had to set the speed reminder to let me know when I pass 80 mph (which is often). If you are performance minded and want a good looking high quality vehicle, this is the SUV for you.


Favorite Features

Performance, style, handling, shifting, interior quality, panoramic roof, soft Napa leather, placement of controls, Sirius satellite radio... you get the picture!


Suggested Improvements

I cannot honestly think of anything except the cost... but you get what you pay for.
