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


The car's performance and design is stellar. The main drawbacks are the fuel economy and the interior styling and functionality compared to less expensive SUVs and cars. Performance on the highway is excellent with plenty of power at higher speeds. Cornering is solid, and the responsiveness is very good. There are a lot of blind spots towards the rear of the car and I have had (and heard from others) problems with the rear hatch closing properly and staying shut - ughh. AM radio is terrible, climate control is not very good, trip computer is slightly old technology that needs updating (e.g., trip timer, real time fuel economy, etc.)

Best Features

No question about it, it is the handling at highway speeds and its auto-leveling feature. This SUV drives like a car.

Worst Features

Update the interior, a lot. A climate control that really works. Why BMW cannot make an AM radio worth a damn is beyond me. And, improve the functionality of the steering wheel controls.
