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.
COMFORT SEATS - GREAT LEATHER AND
GREAT NEW EXPANDED SUN-ROOF.
TOP OF THE LINE SOUND SYSTEM.
EXCELLENT NEW ENGINE AND TRANNY.
SOLID STIFF RIDE WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR
BACK -TYPICAL BMW!
UPDATE THE EXTERIOR LOOK EVEN MORE - IT
IS GETTING A BIT TIRED.
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.
