Major Disappointment
By CJ on
Vehicle
2007 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Review
After owning a Landcruiser, we were ready for something a bit smaller, with better fuel economy. The X5 is a beautiful car and a dream to drive unless it's in the shop. Between 'check engine' lights and 'computer updates', we will sell this car as soon as it is out of the shop - for the 5th time this year alone. Even if we could afford the price tag of our almost monthly visits to BMW, we cannot afford the unreliability and inconvenience of this vehicle. When the car broke down on a major highway last week, the dealership told us the vehicle was "confused", there was nothing wrong with it and we were good to go. Less than 48 hours later, on another highway, it broke down again.
Favorite Features
Beautiful vehicle. Very comfortable seating. Handles well.
Suggested Improvements
Unreliability and BMW's lack of concern with regard to these problems are a great disappointment. I think there are innate flaws with the internal components of this car.

Similar experience to mine. Love the car, hate the unreliability.
