BMW X5 Owner In Southern California
By ocbmwguy on
2008 BMW X5 4.8i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)
After 5 BMWs the poor quality of my X5 4.8i will be my last. I've had problems with the fuel gauge, satellite radio, brakes and compared to the previous X5 I owned, the re-design from the original X5 is bulky and not as fun to drive.
Looks (Sapphire Black with tan interior) and cargo room.
Navigation is slow to calculate route, satellite radio is useless because it constantly drops signal in the same areas my Mercedes Benz has no problem with. Overall quality of car seems low. Biggest nuisance is the squeaky breaks that BMW says "are normal".
