2002 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car new and it was great
until the 50k mile warranty expired.
That's when onboard computer readout
started to go bad... just the start of
one big headache. The resale is awful
on this car. Also, car had a noise that
the dealer was never able to fix. Goes
thru the oil, fast. Maybe I just got a
lemon.


Best Features

Good ride, tight steering box. Sturdy. Sharp design.


Worst Features

Get rid of the stupid computer readout, just one more thing to go bad and have to dole the cash out to fix.

Review

Love it. Best handling and most fun to
drive SUV ever. I have test almost all
of the luxury SUV's on an offroad test
track and the BMW performed the best.


Best Features

The handling of this SUV on and off road is great.


Worst Features

could improve mileage. I would like to try the diesel that is avail only in Europe.

Review

My first BMW at 12K ball joints replaced,emergiency
brk replaced, radio died-water leaking inside. Never
been able to get key to consistantly return seat to
memory position. Drivers door frozen most Jan, Feb
mornings, crawl in through back. HORRIBLE in
snow, only good thing is DSC keeps you from
sliding off into the weeds. Rain sensing works
erraticly. 44K all new brakes incl front rotors,
ball joints rattling again. Interior dr pull finish
chipped. Do we really HAVE to agree to legalities
EVERY time we start the car to use radio, nav
system? Heated seats set to RUMP-ROAST.


Best Features

Nav system (except that you need a half dozen or more discs to cover the US and a small portion of Canada, cant get from CT to Pittsburgh, PA). Front and rear proximity alarm.


Worst Features

Its all about quality control, make it worth the extra expense to get that blue propeller on the hood!

Review

Shopped for an X5 for months. Didn't
want to pay the $50,000 for a brand
new so I found a 2002 X5 3.0 with only
17,000 miles on it. Extremely clean,
hardly driven car. Have driven about
1,000 miles so far and have loved
every minute. This is my second BMW
(1997 328is) and they are by far the
most amazing DRIVING cars in the
world. The X5 lives for 80+ m.p.h. on
the highway. 3.0 is plenty peppy off
the start with plenty of torque but
lacks some power at speed. No big
deal though. Read all about the
electrical problems in the 2001's
which made me stay away from them.
Paid $37,250 for a 2002 w/every option
but NAVIGATION. (bought 7/10/04)
w/17,000 miles


Best Features

"dancing" Xenon headlights at start up, comfort of seats, on-board computer, rear window shades, sport package with 18" wheels, safety features, performance at highway speeds, very solid/stable.


Worst Features

deeper storage compartment under center arm rest, better gas mileage.
