This is my 4th BMW X5 and the first one I am not in love with. The interior is noisy. The transmission does not seem as responsive as previous models. The sport seats are not comfortable. The iDrive is very buggy. Has been in the shop several times already. My previous X5s never saw the shop once except for an oil change. Will try to sell this one. Kind of disappointed since for the last 10 years every car I have owned has been a BMW.
Style and handling when compared to other SUVs but a setback when compared to previous X5s.
Very uncomfortable seats. Noise in the interior, transmission responsiveness, cabin design - my left knee rubs on the door, first time ever problem in a BMW. iDrive.
