I always had a 4runner which I loved
but I wanted to move up to BMW and keep
my SUV feel so I purchased a BMW x5. I
love it. The drive is smooth and the
3.01 has a lot of kick on the freeway.
On long drives the interior is
comfortable and relaxing. The seat
memory is a great feature. The ride is
smooth and a blast to drive. Steering
is steady and it handles great changing
lanes and on unexpected moves. The
option to drive in the sport mode makes
a fun change when you are bored. The
gas mileage isn't great but what I
expected for an SUV and when I
purchased it. The price was not much
more that any other high end SUVS and I
feel like I got maximum value.
Power everything and the onboard
computer. The dual air controls are a
must and ability to drive in sports
mode is fun. The back window
automatically locks when you lightly
lower it and the computer tells you
everything so you always
feel safe. The 4 year maintenance is
Make the 12 disc changer standard and a
bigger glove box. There's a little
blind spot when you look over your
shoulder so improvement can be made in
the design to eliminate that.
