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
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
Overall a great SUV. Eventhough have
made 3 trips to the BMW dealership,
would still have bought it again.
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.
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
Quietness of the interior; BMW styling;
the Xenon lights are fabulous; and the
spare key is fully functioned!

turn signal is noisy but provides good
excuse to turn up the radio! Also, add
an adjustable accelerator pedal.
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
Style, Handling, Comfort
More cargo room, better storage in the
