This luxury SUV stinks big time!
By Hollie on


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


I purchased this car used. The list of problems goes on and on and pretty much resonates what I have read from others so far: Tires have to be replaced every six months due to excessive wear and tear, coolant tank and hoses had to be replaced and the car is still leaking coolant, and best of all, after 100k miles, it needs a new transmission. The cost? $6,000! The X5 has far too many mechanical failures to deal with which ultimately makes this model not worth it in the end.

Best Features

Handles like a sports car; the steering is tight. Also has fantastic acceleration.

Worst Features

Start over! Something's not right with the mechanical underpinnings of this SUV.
