2004 BMW X5 SUV 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Great performance and handling; very practical. Good to go out to dinner or to Home Depot; super sound system; simple, stylish interior; only inconvenience is that front seat window controls are in a less convenient location under the door handle.


Best Features

Handling.


Worst Features

Move the front door handles.

Review

This is the car that you find a reason to drive it. Great looks and plenty of comfort features set this vehicle above others of its class. We have found the X5 to be a very safe vehicle ... my wife survied a front-end impact that resulted in severve damage to the vehicle, but without injury to herself.


Best Features

Styling and safety features (side- impact air bags, etc.


Worst Features

More rear cargo space

Review

While BMW is a well-known name in luxury cars, the X5 falls short. Many options have to be added on with a hefty price tag. Some of the options should come standard on such an expensive vehicle. While there are some problems, the BMW is very responsive with handling and acceleration/braking.


Best Features

Braking....


Worst Features

Rear door should be single, not split, temperature controls should be knobs, limited rear cargo space, rear headrests interferes with rear view viewing, gas mileage needs to be improved, cup holders are terrible, glare sometimes makes controls hard to see, cheaper price tag or more options included.

Smooth transmission and engine performance.


Worst Features

Needs a better stereo sound system and ammenities such as a compass would be wonderful.

I have owned Lincoln Navigators, Jeep Grand Cherokees and other SUVs and this is by far the best overall.

Rear visibility needs improvement - headrests are in the way.
