BMW lover no more
By 2cents2 on
2006 BMW X5 4.4i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I owned a 328is which was a truly great car.
This led me to believe that buying a used 2006 X5 4.4i with very low mileage was a safe bet.
We have owned it for 18 months - and had non-stop troubles - expense - and time wasted at the shop.
The latest - It has taken BMW 8 months and 5 trips to the dealer to determine what is causing the coolant leak we have.
We still aren't 100% sure - but now they think the heads will need to be replaced - or perhaps the entire engine.
$25K wasted on this vehicle.
I'll never buy BMW again.
The ultimate driving machine - for driving to the shop.
ride is great for an suv
Maybe BMW should get a Japanese company to design their engines for them.
