One X5 is enough

Vehicle

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

Review

Had my 2002 X5 since new. At 3000 miles experienced overheating problems. At 17000 miles the entire HVAC unit had to be replaced-water flooding the interior P/S. Speedo has a 5mph error (slow) that I was told was inherent in BMWs - dealer quote "BMW does not want their owners driving too fast". I/P center stack has a severe rattle at the radio cover, console has a severe rattle at the cupholder cover, to date the dealer has not been able to repair either. When I use the heated seats the headlamps dim. Steering is very heavy feeling, difficult in tight, low- speed turning. Would not recommend this car to anyone.

Best Features

Driver's commanding view. Great feel. Handling in snow.

Worst Features

Dealer education on difficult issues. Assembly plant quality.
