Best SAV out there!

2007 BMW X5 SUV 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Picked up the X5 this month and put 800 miles on it the first weekend. Car handles great and is not even comparable to the Acura MDX (I have had two MDXs and this is a big step up). Test drove the new MDX and decided to go with the X5 even though it was more money. Car is rock solid.

X5 Sport and Utility

2007 BMW X5 SUV 4.8i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Amazing handling, very responsive, particularly for it's size, feels smaller and lighter than it is. Interior design, very thoughtful and attractive. Bullet proof on ice and snow, Xdrive, sport package plus all the numerous electronic aids simply work. Over-engineered, takes much study and trial and error to use myiad systems. The iDrive is just plain tedious - flying the F16 was easier! Bottom line: if you like to drive, this is an easy choice over it's peers.

3rd & last

2007 BMW X5 SUV 4.8i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)

Review

My 3rd & last BMW (two 7 series and this X5). With 1300 miles on my 4.8 X5 it had to be towed to shop while I was 800 miles from home when the electronic transmission would not shift. Computer updates were no help. As I write this from my motel room after 2 days of waiting, the factory folks are still scratching their heads. Other than the reliability issue the car is very rough riding. Wind noise is too pronounced for a luxury car selling at this price point. The ventilated seats are superior in overall comfort to the hard buckets which are standard. The runflat tires cost abt $500 each to replace and should be an option not standard!

Love to drive it

The X5 has been a pleasure to own and drive. BMW has made owning this car a pleasure to have with a wrap around warranty program that covers everything including brakes and always being available to cover your needs. The car in all the time I have had it, has only needed oil changes and a brake change. Thumbs up BMW.

Impressive Ride and Drive

Review

After in-depth comparisons to Mercedes ML 320 CDI, ML500, Lexus GX 470 and Cadillac Escalade, the BMW X5 won me over quickly in a variety of areas from build and finish to actual ride, drive and handling. Most of the others offered spongy-swaying rides, not the X5. The V8 is a beast and the 6 cylinder is more than adequate and the mileage is much better. Certain option packages are well worth the cost like the Premium package, the Technology package, Sport package and definitely the Active Steering as well as the Comfort Assist. The Active Steering provides an incredible increased handling effect. And 4 yrs/50k mile bumper to bumper INCLUDING maintenance is sweet as well.

Can't Say Enough About the New X5

Review

BMW has done an outstanding job with this redesign. The old and new X5 both perform well, but the new X5 adds REFINEMENT to the equation. Wind/road noise are hugely reduced. Interior quality is greatly improved. The sport package with active suspension hugs the road, yet gives very smooth ride quality with minimal lean in corners. Contour seats are excellent, although the active "massage" seats are a little weird (like having a python slowly undulate under the seat cushion). No squeaks, rattles. No defects. I tire of the computer-challenged press who constantly complain because they can't learn all iDrive features in a 10-minute test drive. I love the control it gives over vehicle functions.

Underpowered

Review

Bought new 2007 X5 sight unseen. Ordered in October, picked up car in January. In gently rolling area the X5 3.0 seems underpowered. The transmission is constantly shifting and feels like it is straining. If you really put your foot on the gas, it's not as noticeable. Love the design, in fact am trading in for the X5 4.8. It's going to cost, but my mistake.

BMW X5

Review

We waited 5 months for our 4.8 X5 since we had to order it and it has exceeded our expectations. It drives like the 5 series with excellent handling and power. The engine is quiet and the road noise is minimal. We originally had an MDX and it is steps up in performance, handling, and comfort. I highly recommend the sports package.

My First BMW! A great ride!

Review

I bought the X5 in early January 07, was very close to getting the audi Q7, and have owned 3 other audis. But I wanted to try somthing different and glad I did! So far so good! This car is smooth, confident, and looks beautiful! I test drove all the midsize type SUV such as the Acura MDX, Mercedez ML350, Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. I bought the X5 "demo" model so it already had 1000 miles on it. Was a little worried about that but no issues so far and all is covered under warranty.
