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


Review

I had the pleasure of driving my X5 in
Germany for six months before coming
back to the U.S. The X5 handles like a
dream especially at high speeds. Even
if the rear storage space is a little
tight, it has come in handy on numerous
occasions. The X5 is reliable and the
performance is
great.



Best Features

Steptronic transmission and all wheel drive


Worst Features

more rear storage space

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


Review

My first BMW is an X5. I like the SUV,
not crazy about the dealership. They
switched the rims on the vehicle after
I purchased it. It was a demo. They
denied it, but my sales person even
said they did. Drives like a sedan.
Looked better with other rims. Great
Sienna red color. Only one in town.
Have had it 4 months and haven't had
any problems. Cup holders are
inconvenient. Difficult to remove and
replace rear cargo flap. Can't get the
garage door openers to work.


Best Features

Great looking exterior. Great acceleration. Comfortable.


Worst Features

Doors are very hard to open. Make rear cargo flap easier to remove and reinstall. Space cup holders better. More standard features.

Review

The light reading "Check Engine Soon"
will NOT go off. The dealership SAYS I
didn't put the gas cap on correctly.
Nope! I've tried dozens of times. It is
going to the shop soon. Once the A/C
just stopped for few minutes. What was
that?


Best Features

The smooth ride and style of body. The design is one for beauty and comfort.


Worst Features

Lock system needs to be simplified. The front seat needs to be longer in the straddle. (from back of seat to knees, it is too short for the average man or woman) I am 5'9"

Review

I actually have the 2003 model I
purchased in 2002. I can't say enough
about this vehicle. I live on the east
coast and the past 2 winters have been
heavy snow and deep freezing temps. I
still went everywhere with this truck
and drove it like it was springtime.
The anti-lock braking system and DSC
system which does not allow the truck
to fish tail or roll is very
impressive. However, people who are not
familiar with these systems think the
truck does not handle well. You have
to trust the truck in an emergency.
The only negative aspect is the fuel
economy, mine gets 13mpg, I personally
don't care the truck is awesome!!!
If you can't afford it don't buy


Best Features

Xenon headlamps and acceleration!!!


Worst Features

The rear cup holder is too low, my kids kick and have broken it.
