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


Review

My 6th BMW. Best feature: EASILY
the most comfortable ever for a a long
drive (lumbar support seats are
fantastic). Next, sedan handling and
performance. I've achieved a better
time than the 528i over my fav route of
hiways and country roads. Most annoying
feature: the AWFUL tinny noise when
shutting the door. Biggest SMALL
annoyance - unreliable warning LCD
icons e.g. is a breakdown imminent or
is it simply an icon fault (again).
Great fit & finish but qual of BMW
materials declines yearly (like
others). Best was my '85 325E. Still
luv 'em. I went to MB once(300 coupe).
Soulless - a big mistake. MB briefly
had my brain; BMW will always have my
heart. Cor


Best Features

The whole package. There could be more trunk space, but why spoil the styling? For someone who has raced, rallied and hugely enjoyed driving for so long, this is an excellent compromise to slide gracefully into a fun retirement. When they fix the X3 interior I'll switch for more fun


Worst Features

Kill the tinny noise when shutting the doors. More reliability on icon warnings. Have comp calculate 'distance to empty tank' on more than just the last few kms.Better suspension over potholes. Slightly larger glove compartment. Cheaper BMW 'pho

Review

Other than dealing with a small cargo
capacity, the X5 has been our most
favorite car ever owned.

Responsive performance, great transmission!

Needs a weather band on the radio. Larger cargo capacity.

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


Review

I love everything about this SUV.
Except for its electronics. I have
winter, sport, navigation, dsp ... etc.
I have 30K on this SUV, and so far it's
been a disappointment. My passenger
sideview mirror fell off, my door does
not open and close at times, windshield
special wipe doesn't work properly,
radio/dsp doesn't work (NO SOUND!!!)
Doors, warning flasher, reading lamps
comes on for no reason when driving.
2002 X5! What a disappointment! Don't
buy this SUV!


Best Features

Looks great, drives great, solid!


Worst Features

Fix the G**damned electronics!!! X5 electronics is horrible.

Review

I purchased a predriven X5 and love
it. The quality and reliability of BMW
afforded me the confidence to by a pre
driven car and not have the worry.

I came out of a van and was ready for
a luxury car but wanted the style of
an SUV. I will keep this car for a
long time!


Best Features

The way it drives and handles on the highway.


Worst Features

More leg room in the back seat. Cargo space could be larger.

Review

I absolutely love my X5. Before I
purchased my X5 I drove a few other
luxury SUVs and found that the X5 was
the best overall in handling, comfort
and performance.


Best Features

Xenon headlights.
