MercedesML Vs. BMW X5
By Brianthebroker on


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


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

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??
