2012 BMW X5 xDrive35i Premium 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
As with all BMW's, the quality of the car is good.
I think (especially compared to the Lexus LS I traded for this) that the Idrive is very easy to use.
The only thing I don't "get" at all is the electronic transmission shifter.
Instead of clicking into gear, it's basically a switch.
You have to squeeze the buttom on top and one on the side to put it in park rather than just shifing to park.
Sometimes I don't push the buttons right and it doesn't go into park and I lurch forward.
Just a solid car
Again, for a company that bills itself as building "driving machines,"
I don't get the electronic switch instead of a solid shifter feeling on the transmission.
