Take a long test drive
By jonnie on


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


Purchased the X5 because it had the
most headroom of any of the BMWs.
Found the seats very uncomfortable and
after a few 1000 miles, can confirm the
criticism that the car lacks storage
space. (The twin cup holder in the
center console, which holds one cup of
coffee, is a joke as demonstrated by
the fact that there is now an after-
market cup holder being sold for the
X5.) Airbag light came on after 2,000
miles but am optimistic problem will be
easily solved.
Make certain you are comfortable with
an SAV that is for carrying passengers,
not stuff.

Best Features

Handling, automatic transmission.

Worst Features

Add to the storage space in the car; redo the cup holders; make chrome tail pipes standard and not an extra accessory.
