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


Though I love the handling and
performance of the X5, the quality and
reliability have been TERRIBLE. We
have documented 27 issues with this
car in less than 2 years and with only
15K miles on it. It has been in for
repairs 10 times. Some issues are
small, such as the paint peeling from
the door handles, the window motor
sensors not working, and the key
memory failing. But we've had at
least 4 major issues with the coolant
system and starter which rendered it
undriveable. All of this on a car for
which we paid $60K! Our $25K 2001
Tahoe has been in the shop exactly 1
time in the same time period. Which
is the better value?
