2001 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have had the X-5 for 2 months and the
driver side window had to be repaired.
The coolant warning keeps coming up
although the BMW dealership says there
is nothing wrong. Also had to get knob
for the radio controls changed. Car is
still under warranty so was covered for
everything. Will probably get anxious
when the warranty runs out in a couple
of months.


Best Features

Undoubtley a superb thrilling experience to drive it. Will take on most of the cars on the road. Greeaaat power. Love driving it everyday. I have the 4.4i sport package with the 19inch wheels so handles great. Rock solid feeling.


Worst Features

Overall a great SUV. Eventhough have made 3 trips to the BMW dealership, would still have bought it again.

If you live in an area as I do with
plenty of snow/rain and steep hills,
this is the vehicle for you and your
family.
My first experience with BMW and it has
made me a BMW owner for life.


Best Features

You can feel the road as you drive in all conditions.


Worst Features

Sunlight blocks the radio/time screen.

What a great car. Very responsive and
fun to drive. The all-wheel drive
system provides very solid
manueverability and handling in turns.
Both interior and exterior fit and
finish are outstanding. My experience
with the dealer was also very positive.

Review

This SAV is truly a truck wrapped in
luxurious clothing. I have thoroughly
enjoyed getting to know this vehicle.
It has lots of power, a nice stereo
system, and quality construction. Would
recommend for those who desire to be
among the best on the road in any type
of weather.


Best Features

Quietness of the interior; BMW styling; the Xenon lights are fabulous; and the spare key is fully functioned!


Worst Features

Move the hazard lights button to another location. Too easily activated if a woman is digging in her purse. The turn signal is noisy but provides good excuse to turn up the radio! Also, add an adjustable accelerator pedal.

Review

The 2001 X5 3.0 I own has been the best
Suv I've owned and they include
pathfinders, Durangos, Explorers and
Escalades. The blend of Size and
performance reminds me more of a five
series sedan then a SUV. It could use a
bit more cargo capacity but I have more
then adapted to that. Ride comfort is
excellent and the power and handling on
the highway are outstanding. I compared
the Mercedes, Land Rover and Lexus
before purchasing and was more
impressed by the Style, price and
performance of the X5


Best Features

Style, Handling, Comfort


Worst Features

More cargo room, better storage in the center console
