2013 BMW X5 Diesel xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

The most fun BMW model I have driven next to the 330 Coupe. 20" wheels gives it an aggressive & sporty look I love. The dynamic stability control keeps it on the road during the worst torrential rainfall I have ever encountered. It is expensive but well worth it for the safety factor.

2013 BMW X5 Diesel xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

I love this vehicle! Plenty of power(diesel).Tried all diesels and picked the x5 because it came close to my hemi powered vehicle.The ride and steering are firm because this is a performance car not a comfort car.I have my foot in it a lot and still average 23 mpg.Outside finish is top shelf, interior design is very friendly but the gaps and joints are not so good for the price.Plenty of storage(3rd seat would be mistake).Unless you have a lot of money stay away from the staggered wheel setup.Tires cannot be rotated.The spare tire is a must have.Just because its a BMW dealership does not mean good service,shop and compare.More options means more issues.Choose wisely and enjoy!


Best Features

My favorite features are the sound system(standard)and the navagation(option).


Worst Features

If there was just a couple mor inches in the rear cargo area so golf clubs could fit across instead of at an angle.The one big cover floor in the cargo area is very difficult to handle when accessing the spare tire area. It would be much better as two pieces.

Review

Know some do not like the harsh suspension and heavy steering. That is why I stayed with BMW and took a 2013 over waiting for a 2014. Found driving a model with the newer steering was too light, reminded me of the 2 lexus had. The X3 drove with the new unit. I know the diesel has some issue with expensive fixes. But the 2014 is going to have a revised diesel so felt would be better off on the last run of the current motors. Build quality yes it good but have found some of the plastic pieces creak and pop, not what expect in a 70K SUV. So did not go a 5 in quality. But this E70 has good visibility, good seating heights. Course got the multi contour seats.


Best Features

Multi seats, Head up display, rear and side cameras, diesel.


Worst Features

hope the F15 deal with the plastic fit and finish. They did move the door locks to the door which would preferred on the E70. After seeing the F15 it more a refresh of the E70 (or to me it is). Since know the new model, some improvements are good other are not. Depends on the feature your are looking for
