2004 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I did a diplomatic purchase on this vehicle through Joern Esser at Passport BMW in Maryland Heights, MD. Reeves BMW in Tampa delivered the vehicle and did an awesome job getting the truck ready for me. All in all an outstanding ride with the performance to match and looks that are exceptional. I highly recommend this BMW to anyone in this market and especially so if you can qualify for a diplomatic sale - the savings are substanial.


Favorite Features

The exterior looks and the noise of the exhaust when you hit the accelerator.


Suggested Improvements

None. BMW did an outstanding job on this SAV.

2004 BMW X5 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.


Favorite Features

Great looking exterior. Great acceleration. Comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

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?


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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.


Favorite Features

nice firm ride, handles well, runs good. Dealerships are nice, but for the price i'd rather have 2 Chev SRS's.


Suggested Improvements

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.
