2009 BMW X5 xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
Picked up a demo w/7500mi on it. Loaded with most options. The torque is plentiful, if switched to sport mode, it's even sweeter. Drove 1500+miles in 5 days and had no body aches. Very precise steering and fantastic brakes. The turning headlights and fog lights illuminate the roadway very well. Sound system is also amazing. This SAV is a blast to drive. It's my wife's so don't get to drive it much, but I feel good to have my family travel in this solid vehicle. Good crash ratings. Everyone says that the i-drive is a pain, however everything new in the world of electronics has a learning curve, once you master it, its all intuitive. Patience is a virtue. Lastly we got 27mpg on our road trip.
Steering, braking, sound system, safety features, real time traffic updates, heads up display, bluetooth, panoramic glass roof, sport mode, 600+mile range w/one tank. 4yr/50000mi maintenance plan, BMW roadside service, BMW SOS plan, heated steering and most of all the torque.
Replace run flats with normal tires. Provide spare tire for 3rd row option.
