2005 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I love my bmw and its been a great car with not one problem yet. It Is a really strong car and very comfortable. And we use this car a lot on long trips and the longer we are in the car the funner it gets. I was suprised that when we went to tahoe without chains, it went perfectly as if the road wasn't slippery.


Favorite Features

Dynamic stability control, heated seats, the seats, the spectronic transmission, exterior and interior design, engine and a lot more!!!


Suggested Improvements

More cargo room, trunk is to high, the cd changer should not be in the trunk.

2005 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This SUV blew away all of my expectations. It is extremely comfortable, ultra sporty and very practical. I love this vehicle! It works seamlessly with my iPod and Bluetooth cell phone. I conduct business from my vehicle and this SUV allows me to conduct it with style and success. I cruise across the state to meetings and arrive feeling refreshed and ready for business. The safety features on this car will ensure that I arrive unharmed. It takes corners like a sports car and "floats" down the highway. Before you buy any SUV, you should test this one out!! Excellent vehicle!!!


Favorite Features

Driver seat comfort, ergonomics, iPod interface, Bluetooth capability and style.


Suggested Improvements

Needs better cupholders!!

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.

2005 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This vehicle has style, class, and enough horses under the engine to do what ever you would like. It's very versatile. One day I'm going to business meeting and next I'm pulling a 6600lbs boat to go fishing.


Favorite Features

My favorite features is the way the vehicle performs altogether.


Suggested Improvements

The navigation screen need to be easier to read. It's at a bad angle and has a very bad glare.

Review

Traded in a Lincoln Navigator for this little sports car. Best car I've ever owned or driven. Makes driving fun, wife & I look for excuses to drive. Amazing the way it handles, accelerates and brakes. Almost feels like it anticipates your next move. Takes corners like it is glued to the road. Love the passing acceleration at all speeds.


Favorite Features

Handling, fantastic night lighting with super bright steerable headlights


Suggested Improvements

Add heads-up display option. Provide audio hands-free telephone interface, not just Bluetooth.
