With every company making Suv's, each
company is entitled to their own vision
when creating their model. The X5 is an
excellent vechile in the standpoint of
build quality, and luxury features. The
interior is nicely laid out, everything
you would expect from BMW. When you
drive this suv you'll notice it is
smooth. But, it really isn't that much
fun to drive. Very average. It feels
like the Grand Cherokee I used to own.
Living in Michigan, you expect your suv
to hold up in bad weather. The X5 is not
really suited for this. Very average in
bad weather. The Awd system is not
suited for heavy snowfall. My GMC Yukon
is much better, for much less money in
these kind of situations.
The interior. The heated seats are a
great feature for anyone who has deal
with cold winters. The radio is pretty
nice. BMW has legendary customer
service. You have a problem, they take
care of you. They make great vechiles(I
own a 745il), this is just not one of them.
The X5 is great if you don't have to
deal with bad weather during the winter.
Don't expect ab 'awesome' ride. This suv
is just kind of average. Not really sure
it is worth the money I paid for it. The
exterior really needs some work.
This is an awesome car to drive. It
really moves when you need it to, and
also when you just "want" it to. I love
the way it handles with the sport
package. I love the way it looks. My
car is never going off road. It is a
The V8 4.4I motor. The stereo, seat
warmers, and sunroof.
More cup holders. And ones that
actually fit two drinks next to each
other would be great.
Best ride I have ever had.Good off road
hunting,snow skiing,have pulled a
number of vehicles out of snowbanks.I
have neveer had to chain up even if
reuirements were up.Great in
moutains.Have driven at 110 MPH for 5
hr and was comfotable.Of course ther
was no traffic and could see at least
2mi. ahead.Hae used to tow utility
traler was not aware of a difference.
Comfort.view from drivers seat except
left rear vehicle.fuelneeded not bad if
do use caution.nice sound system.
Vehicle drives nice, holds the road
well, stiff ride, nice interior. Poor
electronics, radio / sound sys is so
so, electronics are hard to use and
program, had to have the dealer come
out to program the door garage door
operner, he had to call a factory
number to get it programmed. backup
mirror quit working last week, phone
not what promiced (blue tooth comming)
don't believe anything about BMW
electronics, asume a F150 has better
electronics. On Star system diden't
work today when my wife needed it.
Dealership charged me $50 to program
the door keys, to auto set seats and
open windows, they still don't work.
nice firm ride, handles well, runs
good. Dealerships are nice, but for
the price i'd rather have 2 Chev SRS's.
ELECTRONICES, how about a dicient
sound sytem and radio, an on star
system that acutually works when you
need it. Make an appointment two to
three weeks for service. Make the
keys work as promiced, ie programable
for drives seat, open windows, driver
settings. POOR POOR electronics.
