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


Got rid of a Jeep Liberty and couldn't be happier. Offers more interior room, vastly improved handling, and far better gas mileage - I get 25 on highway going 75-80. Only problems encountered were bad rear brake light sockets and a bad sensor which were replaced under factory warranty. Big pluses are safety features and ratings, interior room for 5 passengers (comfortably!), engine and braking performance, its exterior looks, and the legendary BMW driving experience (my 3rd BMW). I found it a great compromise for both commuting to work and for family vacations. (I use a 20x60 trailer cargo box in the rear for extra luggage if needed, and it does not affect aerodynamics.)

Best Features

Engine, brakes, handling, exterior and interior design, interior space, tilting mirrors when backing up

Worst Features

Cupholders (common complaint), better interior door handles (shows wear).
