Convincing my wife
By Norm on


2002 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


This has been a great, but not troublefree, vehicle. Our first BMW. I had to convince my wife that she would enjoy this SAV. Now I cannot get her out of it. It has never stranded us, but we have gone to our dealer several times answering the "service engine soon" idiot light. This light has alerted us to a loose gas cap AND a bad catalytic converter. Both on the same idiot light. My wife uses automatic. I use manual shifting. It reminds me of my first car--a stick shift way back in the 1950s. Great cornering and passing power.

Best Features

4.4 liter engine. 5 speed manual/auto optional transmission. The two piece tailgate. Great fit and feel all around. In and out.

Worst Features

A way too small sun visor. We live in the desert and the sun is always getting me from the side. Visor too short when swung around to the side window. More specific warning lights.
