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


Review

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 vehicle. The standard Audio system for this vehicle is a joke. Its the worst in this category of vehicles.


Best Features

Tiptoronic Transmission, External styling, Power, Handling

Review

Horrible ride. The suspension system on this vehicle needs to be re- designed. You will feel every bump in the road from your toes up to your jaw! The back storage area is small. Also, the back seats are very cramped regarding leg room - perhaps o.k. for children and pets, but completely uncomfortable for adults. We could not get rid of this car fast enough !


Best Features

None.


Worst Features

Total re-design of the suspension system.

Review

I've now covered 5500 miles, with no problems, other than moisture appearing in the parking lights. After driving a 2000 528IA sedan for 3 years, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the switch to this SUV. After 3 days behind the wheel I was sold, and will probably never go back to a sedan again. This handles and rides like a BMW, but offers the typical function SUVs offer. It's luxurious, yet tasteful and not overdone


Best Features

The smoothness and power of the 4.4 V8 is incredible, but gas mileage suffers as a result. My conbined city/ highway is around 15mpg on premium. The 16 way comfort seats are excellent, as is the visability. Top quality BMW fit and finish throughout.


Worst Features

The factory nagvigation system is the worst system I've ever experienced!-- The after market system on my 2000 528 sedan was far superior, and at lower cost 3 years ago! Entry and exit very difficult. Added BMW accessory running boards and solved the problem.
