Good, so far!!

2005 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I've only owned it 1000mi and the car is still under warranty, but so far the car has been excellent. Took it on a long trip and the V8 is so smooth and effortless at speed. The car is rock solid. I will use the car for towing, so the extra weight is helpful, but otherwise the car is actually small for the 5000# weight. Gas mileage has been 19- 20 combined, which I'm happy with. I'm not sure I would buy this car new (not a great value and high depreciation), but I got a helluva deal because the poor economy and higher gas prices.
Luxury interior, pano sunroof, smooth engine, goops of power.
They need a lower cost warranty package after the factory warranty expires. For 2009, they should have keep the 4.4i option.
