Now to be critical
By Jeffram on


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


Now for the rest of the story...

Sports pkg...Don't ask for a rotation
because tires smaller than front.
Darn expensive tires with less wear
than normal. As a result you
get "cupping" which creates road noise
after 1/2 life of tire.

Electrical...Bulbs go out like crazy.
Lost Pixels in the lcd displays had to
have element replaced
window silinoid (sic)...I have had 2
replaced. You sort of get used to
the "gunshot" sound when the windows
drop for no reason at all. Won't roll
up until silinoid is replaced.
Don't plan on getting good service if
you live in DFW. There isn't a dealer
in Dallas that seems to care about
your business. Are you listening
Huzanga? or John Roberts?

Best Features

Hey this is a BMW forget about the loud airconditioning and enjoy the feel of the road! This is a sports car not a luxury vehicle. If you can just afford your payments, this car is not for you! Fast and fun to drive! Great tow vehicle. Long trips? Drive the Lexus LX470

Worst Features

Keep your looks and style. Follow the Japanese on reliablity and Rd noise.
