Rides like a 5 Series sedan, NO WAY!

ReviewThe X5 will leave most other SUV's in the dust including the VW Toureg, especially climbing up a twisting, winding mountain road. However, it will bounce you along like an 18 wheeler. Fun to drive, yes; on a long trip though, it is pure agony. Styling, it excels. Safety, that is one of the primary reasons for buying it. Would I do it over again, no way, not since I have driven the VW Toureg V8. Although the Toureg is not as fast, it rides like a car, handles like a sports car, and unlike the Porsche Cayenne, it has better trim, and cost tens of thousands of dollars less.
Best FeaturesRain Sensor Wipers and extremely strong V8.
Worst FeaturesReplace the rear storage area cover with retractable spring loaded cover like the Lexus RX. The gear and track system on the X5 is not typical BMW engineering.
