BMW used to be the signature of performance and reliability. Today at BMW it is all about profits, gone are the days where you could drive your bimmer 100k with no problems. This is our second X5 in two years, as we thought our first was just a one off lemon. Let me warn you!
If you own one of these trucks be prepared to fix it. I don't mean when it hits 100k. I mean 50, 60k!
This last experience sent us over the edge as telescoping wheel motors failed and the tail lamp malfunction was reported on the computer and BMW said $150.00 to replace just the light and over a grand for the steering wheel motors
Whatever I said and traded it in. Do yourself a favor a buy a Infiniti or Lexus!

for minor parts to last longer. BMW is losing mid-high end customers due to poor quality parts and lack of addressing issues.
