Great Overall, But...

2006 BMW X5 3.0i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This is our 3rd BMW; we've owned the 325i and 525i as well. This car handles beautifully and I feel very safe in it. It is a joy to drive and is extremely comfortable, especially on long trips. That being said, BMW really dropped the ball on the interior design. What kind of car only offers a cassette player in-dash with a navigation system? The only way I could get a CD system was to put it in the cargo area - doesn't work for me at all. Also, the radio doesn't seem to pick up our area's signals too well, no matter what the settings are. The nav system is not great, BMW gave me an outdated CD at time of purchase - having problems getting replacement. Probably won't buy this one again.
Bluetooth, heated seats, truffle-colored leather, included maintenance.
CD and nav system in dash; less sensitive seat belt alerts, better customer service, individual radio station settings,
