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


I do not own this car any more. This was the car that made me switch brands for good. I am like most of you. I don't mind paying as long as I get my money's worth. I did not. Reliability is a big issue with me. I have had it until it went out of warranty, only owner, always kept up with the services, 11 pages of records from day one. Little things, dead battery, window regulators, Nav screen, abs sensors, vacuum leaks (intake manifold) MAF sensor, self leveling rear suspension sensors, A/C sensor, oil separator, among other things. Other than that, fun car to drive when not in shop. Well built, smooth engine but the fear of something going wrong anytime overshadows the driving experience.

Best Features

It would have been a good compromise between power and practicality had it been more reliable. A lot more reliable. Most of us come from the sports car market have a family now and don't like the idea of the minivan. Too bad this wasn't the car for me.
