Vehicle is fun to zip around in. The
ride is stiff/sporty compared to other
Luxury SUVs. The biggest problem I had
with the vehicle was that its AC broke
down 3 times during the 1st year. Only
thing hotter than the Texas temperature
was my temper during this period. To
have plunked over $50K for a vehicle
with an unreliable AC is unthinkable.
Once this problem was resolved, I have
had a very nice experience overall with
The standard Audio system for this
vehicle is a joke. Its the worst in
this category of vehicles.
the bmw x5 is an unbelievable car. The
gas milage is much better than most of
the other suv's i have used and its
4.4 liter v8 engine is terrific.
Furthermore i reccomend the bmw x5 to
drivers out there who want a car that
has a lot of space and which works
well on the road.
the 320 horsepower,xDrive, V8 engine,
better gas milage more horsepower,
Well, What can I say...This new BMW X5
4.8is is a Rocket. I have all the
bells and whistles, and it all seemed
to work fine. However, after just 3000
miles in a week, I wrapped it around a
pole off of HWY 169 near Burnsville MN,
I think I was exceeding the speed limit
by 100 mph, or so. It was a wild ride,
all the airbags appeared to work fine.
Looking for car insurance now to
purchase another one!!!
Car is not worth the dealer hassle. My
X5 lease exp. and the plan was to get
another one. UNTIL my turn in exp. 2
dealers Bob Smith,& Century both said
the car was perfect. I also asked the
pick up dealership to precheck the
car. They didn't. Finally dealer
picks up the car charges $1200 for a
variety of small issues. I had a fit,
called up BMW,they then came up with an
enitrely different list but still 1,200!
If known, I could have repaired all
items for alot less. I tried resolveing
with BMW corporate, no response.
They're to many other good choices out
there to put up with this nonsense. I
just bought the Volvo SUV and I'm happy.
Greater responsibliities between
dealerships and owners. The dealers
don't really care past the immediate
