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


Review

I've driven my 3.0 for 21,000 miles and
have had a good experience thus far.
Major complaints are the software
glitches (fixed at 15k service),
terrible cup holder location, various
squeeks and rattles.

The biggest disappointment is the
squeeks and rattles. One in the back
cargo area and one in the CD cover
shield when down (leave up all the time
now). If I wanted to deal with quality
issues such as this I would have bought
a GM or Ford. This has been a big
disappointment.


Best Features

Appearance, 18" wheels


Worst Features

Better package options (too many useless items), better quality control, change cup holder location.

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


Review

After a year of casual driving, this
3.0i still performs like new. You can
see and feel the craftsmanship from in
and out. The Neon lights are nice, the
bold rear mirrors, and of course, it's
BMW name (not someone said: Big
Mouthed Woman). After a year of 7,000
miles endend driving, there has no
problem yet.

The set-up of on-board computer seems
to be more than sophisticated than you
want, but, live a real life then.


Worst Features

Make set up more user friendly

Review

I've read through some of the reviews
and am very surprised to hear about
numerous electrical glitches. I've
owned my 3.0 since 7/02 and have put
about 11k miles so far. I have not had
ONE electrical (or other)problem with
the car. Even though the Xs are built
in America, it is by no means an
American SUV. It is still German
driving, through and through. There is
no American SUV that can come close to
the absolute driving pleasure this car
brings. Even with the AWD, the car is
deceptively quicker than you think.
Have driven other SUVs and this is
completely solid at any driving speed.
I feel safe and in control in this car.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!


Best Features

Handling, safety, styling


Worst Features

Back climate control can get rather load when going at full blast. Small annoyance for an otherwise GREAT SUV!

Review

I cannot imagine driving a better
SUV. Aside from the 16mpg I average,
the vehicle has no downside. During
my first year of ownership the X5 was
not a common sight on the street and I
had dozens of people ask me about
it. Now they have become very common
and I can understand why. Mine is
powerful, extremely comfortable and
incredibly fun to drive. It's also
given me a terrific sense of
confidence, driving through the snow
that was dumpen on the east cost this
past weekend.


Best Features

I love the way the X5 handles.


Worst Features

Cannot think of one thing I would change.
