2006 BMW X5 SUV 4.4i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have had the following items serviced since I have owned the vehicle - valley pan, panoramic moonroof, and AC headunit. All items were covered under warranty. The interior personal space is extremely generous. The door openings are large and make getting small children in and out of car seats very easy. Rear cargo area is somewhat limited as a result however. I do like the clamshell hatch. Driving this vehicle is so much fun. It handles like a sedan and has plenty of power. It puts a smile on my face every time I get in. The styling is timeless, subtle but distinctive, I love it. The CPO warty, extd service, BMW 2 payments, and 0.9% financing made this a very attractive purchase.


Favorite Features

4.4L V8, Handling, Panoramic moonroof, Styling, 19" sport wheels, Exhaust note, Clamshell hatch, BMW service, extended warranty. Driving experience!


Suggested Improvements

Eliminate the tape player w/ Navigation, Move the CD changer up to the front, Eliminate the redundant hot cold dial and dual temperature zone controls. Improve fuel economy (not bad, not great 17mpg).

Review

Terrific vehicle, just love the way that it grips the road. The seating position and all of the gauges, and instruments are perfectly located.


Favorite Features

The comfort seats perfectly contour to your personal settings and are really supportive on a long drive.

Review

After 6 months of research, I finally decided on the 4.4 X5. I am soo happy with my decision. I really feel the X5 is the top. I was driving a 2004 Grand Cherokee, and it can not even compare, except for I can no longer go 4- wheeling on the beach. On the highway it handles just like the 530 and is quicker.


Favorite Features

Navigation, Blue Tooth, Panoramic sunroof, rear seat recline, heated steering wheel just to name a few.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders!! They are better than the ones in my 2002 530i, at least I can fit one cup in them, but they are not that functional.

Review

I love the looks of the body shape, love the sporty wheels available, love the navigation system, and love the power of the 4.4 liter engine. Whatta beast! When you say MOVE, it MOVES!


Favorite Features

Navigation system! Wow! Very handy!


Suggested Improvements

Move the locking button from the center console in front of the drink holders to an easily reachable position on BOTH the driver's and passnenger's doors. And provide TWO different buttons on each door for locking and unlocking instead of only one button for both functions.

Review

This 06 X-5 was a replacement for a "Lemon" 05 of exact color, type and equipment,I think they just swapped plates on the vehicle. The 05 had a bad transmission and sunroof both of which were finally replaced after five months of disgusting arguments. The 06 still had the same problems, those being transmission that didn't know what gear it wanted to be in and a sunroof that leaked and would not close as it was designed to. I have owned seven BMWs and generally thought they were some of the best cars built, this was also my third X-5, but definitely my last. I could go on and on with the problems but there is not enough room in this review. Stay away from this vehicle it is not worth it.


Favorite Features

Nothing


Suggested Improvements

Scrap the entire X-5 line and try again.
