2001 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the bmw and was in love from the first time i rocketed away. The pick and top speed of (234 km/h) was great and this is the 3.0 liter. the braking is EXCELLENT and the turning great too! Overall you think you are in a sports car and the handling is stiff and reactionary. If you want a mean machine that can get you here to there in style and comfort then this is the year and the model to get , better on gas then the 4.4 and 4.6, 4.8 aswell. Holds its price too!


Best Features

overall car and back up tilting mirrors to see the curb


Worst Features

better response on the manual transmission gearing

2001 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought it as a Certified Preowned with 25K on it. It is the most desirable SUV in its class. After several road trips with a baby, we like its safety features, ability to get places quickly and decent fuel mileage. There are some electrical gremlins that I can not duplicate for the dealer that only happen 20% of the time.


Best Features

Transmission is the smoothest and most "read your mind" operating unit that I have ever driven. It makes my Dad's RX300 feel like a Ford. Steering at any road speed is well weighted and precise. Much better than any other SUV on the market.


Worst Features

Some plastic interior parts seem cheap. Rear heat and air controls are just a "vent" with a fan speed.

Review

The best thing I ever did was trading
my 2000 ML430 for an X5 3.0 liter. The
ML is the WORST CAR I have ever owned,
it spent more time in the shop than I
drove it. After owning the X5 for
several months I have had not one
problem with it. It is the best
driving SUV in its class. Also it
looks the best too. Its like a tank
driving in the rain and a 5 series on
dry pavement. The V6 BMW has more
power than my V8 4.3 liter Mercedes.
Oh yeah, it uses less gas than the ML
as well. I've already decided in 2005
I will be leasing another one. TRULY
THE BEST SUV....


Best Features

Drive handling, quiet cabin, radio, instrument cluster lights in red, comfort, and the jealous look on everyones face as I speed by them in the snow!!!


Worst Features

I know everyone says this, but the only improvement on the X5 should be larger cup holders. AS it is I can only fit one coffee, the passenger has to hold theirs. When is the X7 coming out??

Review

This vehicle will do anything that a
SUV is suppose to do. Its priced
similar to the Chevy Tahoe and yet
drives like a sports car. I really
like mine.
