2003 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I've owned SUV's since 1990 starting
with the Mazda Navajo (2 door Ford
Explorer) an Explorer and a Jeep. My
wife complained that they all drove
like trucks, not the X5! It handles
like a dream, has all the comforts
you'd expect out of a luxury SUV and
the interior and exterior styling are
superb. My first BMW and it won't be
my last.

Best Features

Handling, hands down. The X5 out handles my '95 XJS and my '94 MB E320.

Worst Features

The six cylinder should be larger. While adequate for most driving, I miss my V-8's in my other SUV's. Most noticably when accelerating onto the highway. I just couldn't justify the added cost of the V-8 in this vehicle.
