I leased this 2010 X5 for my wife. I have never leased a car before, but I am glad I did since I will be getting rid of this vehicle ASAP. The car is a gas guzzler and you are constantly filling up. It is just outright inconvenient. The fuel tank is just too small. The backup sensor system so sensitive that it is obnoxious. The air conditioning system is inadequate and very noisy. The left side of the drivers face is always hot during SC Summer months as the A/C airflow is entirely inadequate. Run flat tires seem good until you have a flat or blowout. Then you must depend on BMW roadside service which is useless on the weekends. Very disappointed in this vehicle for the price of the lease.
15,000 mile service interval is nice, but don't leave it up to your wife to check the oil or tires.
The 2010 X5 needs a far more powerful A/C system and needs to add a spare tire...you are kaput with even minor tire damage. Don't even think about taking this vehicle off road. Fuel range needs dramatic improvement and the backup sensor system needs refinement. Revamp roadside assistance program
