2010 BMW X5 SUV xDrive48i 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Very poor reliability. I am not going to say much other than if you buy one you were warned. Maybe because they are build in the states and not Munich. Maybe because they have so much electronics that no one knows how to fix when it breaks but mine has been nothing but problems. Climate control issue, leaking of fluids and high battery discharge than can leave you stranded and has twice. The sedans seem fine and I should know as I drive loaners of 1, 3 and 5 series more than my SUV. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.


Best Features

I like the power, cornering and transmission knob.


Worst Features

Make it more more often then not, the run flat tires I do not like. No jack comes with the car as there is no spare. Will not matter as it will not work long enough to be an issue.

2010 BMW X5 SUV xDrive30i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Got the new X5 for a very good price. With just a few hundreds over invoice and factoring in the $2500 rebate, great deal. Had a BMW 330i with ZHP before. Expected a similar "best in class" dynamic. Was quite disappointed. The vehicle is close to my outgoing 2001 MDX than the 330i in terms of performance and handling. Don't know about the turning radius myth. Where my MDX could make a straight U turn, I have had to do w/ 3 point turns. Big gaps in the doors letting dirts in. Tires are run-flat only. Hugely expensive as BMW disallow repairs. A small nail had cost me $400.


Best Features

Great exterior, best looking in class. Solid feeling on the road. Relatively good cornering manner. Not much tilting.


Worst Features

Please, let me have a regular tire. Extremely noisy. Very expensive. Pointless. Need more horse power to move the massive body. Can we have more precise engineering to have smaller gaps that can match an 8 year old Acura?

Review

I ordered an X5, 4.8 with: Cold Weather PKG Premium PKG Tech PKG rear climate 3rd row The ride is great, performance is exciting and everything just feels right. No need for premium sound system, the base package is pretty good, and I like to listen to loud music.


Best Features

Performance, and the traffic integration with Navigation. Works great on a road trip.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, more room in the 3rd row.

Review

The X3 and X5 have the same 3.0 sized engine. But the X5 is about 1000lbs heavier. Where is the "Efficient Dynamics"? It is sluggish after making turns. You are constantly downing shifting gears just to be normal on the roads. This one is not part of the Ultimate Driving machine class!!


Best Features

It does have a nice looking exterior but that's about it.


Worst Features

Painted bumpers if they are charging at this kind of prices. Put back the oil dip stick, temp gauge and privacy glass as standard equipment.

Review

Lost wiper in heavy rain storm, one of the windows insisted to open on the freeway and flooded my car. The next day it magically cured itself. Alarm goes off on its own. I have observed this myself. Nothing passed by my X5 with loud music or exhaust. MY dealer cant figure it out. The battery is excellent. Lost the driver's memory seat, fixed it then it was the passenger's memory seat. What's next? When the car goes over a bump, the rear wiper and washer are on. You all get the idea...


Best Features

Yes, it does have good steering and suspension. But we rather give them up when BMW cant improve their qualities.


Worst Features

Quality Quality Quality Value Value Value
