A Beauty and a Beast

Vehicle

2008 BMW X5 4.8i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Just purchased a very low mileage CPO. This car is very powerful yet very refined. Works well with two kids around town, but it really shines on the freeway. So smooth, so stable, even over 75 mph with twists and turns... Lower end power not as ideal as I'd hoped (it's a heavy vehicle), but once you get going it's like flying a jet fighter. Technology works great (for 2008 vintage) and iPod integration, bluetooth, and everything else is seamless. Actually love the iDrive- it's intuitive and really lets you customize the car how you want it. Just spend an hour learning it- it's well worth it. Yes, it guzzles gas, but if you buy this vehicle you know what you're getting into.

Favorite Features

Power, comfort, panoramic moon roof (kids can't get enough), style, iDrive, feel safe and secure at any speed or any road type. BMW extended warranty means I pay zero for service for another 2.5 years!

Suggested Improvements

Rear camera awful but has been improved on new models, nav is clunky compared to our previous 2001 Acura.
