Review

Nice drive, when it works. My car spent 110 days in the shop during a 2 year lease. And BMW refused to help!


Favorite Features

Nice drive


Suggested Improvements

Make it work, especially the suspension. Get BMW to understand what customer service is. Don't leave customers with a lemon.

Review

From day one this vehicle was a major disapointment. Spent almost 60K on vehicle that went through brakes every 3000 miles after the first service. Was in dealership almost every 2-3 weeks. Very noisy and very poor in snow. Most dissapointing was dealer response. Said I must be driving with two feet. Have two other 5 series with a total of 100,000 miles on them and no brake problems. Dealer has refused to honor warranty after only 24,000 miles.

Review

I bought this car expecting a luxury product. The car has not run correctly since driving it off the lot. It has been at the dealer 5 times in 6 months. Customer service is condescending and not willing to offer any kind of compensation to back up their product. I would never buy another BMW product not worth the payments. Also BMW assist can not help you unlock your doors, better off buying a Chevy.

Review

I have just about 14,000 miles on my X5. Not aerodynamically designed... if it is windy and i'm traveling faster than 70 miles, there is a whistling noise coming from the front of the windshield. The luggage compartment cover is also rather annoying due to it's rattling. This is not what I had expected from a BMW.

Review

It may have been a great car. It may have been a great truck. But it's neither. Very comfortable and decent performer with nice interior. Nevertheless, a very busy exterior, awfully heavy doors (watch your fingers), lousy electronics, bad rear visibility, gargantuan gas appetite, tremendous wind noise with open roof, unreadable computer display in most daylight and huge turning radius. Main forte - desirable name tag. Living up to the promised ultimateness - in chris bangle's next life. We are walking away from it for. Thanks, munich, this was our last present to you.

Suggested Improvements

300 characters not enough, but start with the gas consumption thorough exterior, weight, electronics, built quality and look up date - it's almost 2008! world is changing - cover new grounds.
