Fun finicky car
By scrosby on
2005 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Kids got older and wanted a luxury smaller SUV for me. The X5 fit the bill perfectly. It is a sexy, fun, powerful vehicle with plenty of room without feeling like a truck posing as a SUV. BMW thought of everything with this vehicle with a few exceptions. The CD is in the back, therefore I never use it.The tires wear awful! Can not be rotated. Had transmission issues since day 1, and just had replaced by BMW. It would not engage upon takeoff at times and would feel as if you had been rear-ended when it engaged. No problems since. Would not be particularly comfortable for four adult size people. My teenagers get nauseated riding in the backseat.Otherwise I LOVE my X5, would recommend!
Upgraded adjustable seats are a must, navigation, awesome power, sensors are great, plenty of cargo room, plenty of clearance, smooth ride
Put CD in front, casette player a waste, fix tire wearing problem
