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


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!
