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 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

None. BMW did an outstanding job on this SAV.

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"
