Review

Drives and handles superbly in comparison to the Mercedes ML350 and Lexus GX470. More features like run flat tires, xenon headlamps, etc., are standard equipment but on the others they are options; nicer looking and zero cost maintenance warranty, the kind of warranty you used to be able to get with a Mercedes.


Best Features

Active drive and iDrive. Once you understand iDrive it is the same as when you first came in contact with a PC... foreign at first but now you cannot imagine living without a PC and the same applies to iDrive.


Worst Features

Diesel versions (6&8 cylinder), more wheel sizes/rim choices.

Review

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.


Best Features

Style and handling when compared to other SUVs but a setback when compared to previous X5s.


Worst Features

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.

Review

This new BMW X5 is a shocker. The SUV/SAV is so cheaply made on the interior that it buzzes and rattles over all roads. My 12-year old insisted that the back seats felt like sitting in the plastic bleachers at a school ball game. I like BMW and I'm shocked that this car ever left the test facility. It's all engine and suspension, and performs well, but the build quality is cheap. The leather seating surfaces are hard and felt like vinyl.


Best Features

Performance.


Worst Features

Take a cue from Acura/Lexus/Audi on how to build solid interiors. Black plastic rear bumper breaks up color flow, especially if you buy white. Doors don't feel solid when you close them.

Review

Very nice SUV - we've had other BMWs but this is the first with iDrive and I agree, iDrive stinks. In spite of the iDrive this is the only SUV I have ever driven that is actually fun to drive. (We've had a few Denalis and Tahoes.) It drives like a BMW. Overall, it's a good car, fun to drive, I'd buy another.


Best Features

Handling, acceleration, nice build quality.


Worst Features

Ditch the iDrive.
