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


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
