Not your Soccer Mom's SUV
By Cinvinman on


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


Not wanting to sacrifice driving experience (I've driven a 1997 BMW 5 series for the past 8 years) but needing to buy a 6,000+ lb. vehicle for my business, I settled on an X5 with the sport suspension. It has been a great vehicle. If you weren't up so high, you'd hardly know that you weren't in a sport sedan. In addition, despite the extra weight, I average a shade less than 19.5 mpg, a mere 1 mpg short of what I was getting from my 528! The panoramic moonroof is excellent as are the sport seats. The only things I dont like are the body molding that runs under the doors - it is a dirt trap and my pant legs seem to always rub it and the lack of a super large cargo area.

Best Features

Suspension, engine, advanced headlights, sport seats, lumbar support, stereo with iPod adapter, climate controls, moonroof, 4 year total maintenance program

Worst Features

Fix side molding problem
