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


Review

Excellent power and handling. It is far smoother than a Mercedes 430 I last owned. The navigation system is not easy to use. It is difficult to program in destinations. It will also not accept addresses at times and wants intersections. The new sunroof is amazing large. Dual climate controls up front and a separate one for the back. The ski bag is great for skiers. It allows the up to 2 skis to slide through the center of the back seat but remains covered. The trunk space is small - this was the reason I originally bought the Mercedes 4 years ago. There is obviously no 3rd row seat option. It is still a fairly small SUV and easy to park in tight spaces.


Best Features

The 4.4 liter engine


Worst Features

More trunk space

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


Review

This is an SUV for people who have always loved driving performance cars! You will not feel like you've traded the fun of driving for the utility of an SUV. The car has an incredibly strong feel for the road and positive powerful control. The 4.4 sport package is exceptional, and worth the extra money.


Best Features

Love the performance! Feels a lot like a 530 but heavier. Really like and use the Nav system. Like the rain sensing wipers.


Worst Features

Get the CD loader in the front. Need a third row seat option. It's hard to fit a bike in the back unfortunately....

Review

I'VE OWNED THREE X5'S. tHE FIRST WAS A 3.0 LITRE WHICH WAS REALLY COMFORTABLE, HANDLED WELL AND HAD GREAT BREAKS, MY NEXT WAS A 4.4 IS WHICH ALTHOUGH IT WAS AN EXCELLENT VEHICLE GOT TERRIBLE MILEAGE. IF TRADED IT IN FOR A 2004 4.4 WITH THE VALEVTRONIC ENGINE AND THE SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. gETTING BETTER MILEAGE, BUT WHAT i LOVE ON THIS MODEL IS THE BIGGER SUN ROOF, THE COMFORT SEATS (PREMIUM PACKAGE) AND THE GREAT UPGRADED SOUND SYSTEM. tHE VEHICLE IS POWERFUL, COMFORTABLE, QUIET, ALL COMPETANCE AND GRACE WITH A KICK ASS ENGINE WHEN YOU NEED IT.


Best Features

COMFORT SEATS - GREAT LEATHER AND ADJUSTMENTS. GREAT NEW EXPANDED SUN-ROOF. TOP OF THE LINE SOUND SYSTEM. GREAT BRAKES. EXCELLENT NEW ENGINE AND TRANNY. SOLID STIFF RIDE WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR BACK -TYPICAL BMW! QUIET. PARKING SONAR/WARNING


Worst Features

UPDATE THE EXTERIOR LOOK EVEN MORE - IT IS GETTING A BIT TIRED.

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

Worst Features

Rear visibility needs improvement - headrests are in the way.
