While BMW is a well-known name in luxury cars, the X5 falls short. Many options have to be added on with a hefty price tag. Some of the options should come standard on such an expensive vehicle. While there are some problems, the BMW is very responsive with handling and acceleration/braking.
Rear door should be single, not split, temperature controls should be knobs, limited rear cargo space, rear headrests interferes with rear view viewing, gas mileage needs to be improved, cup holders are terrible, glare sometimes makes controls hard to see, cheaper price tag or more options included.
