2004 BMW X5 SUV 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

We have now put allmost 15k on this
car since new. We ordered the car with
every option avail.
Love the performance, but have been to
the dealer 4 times!!! for the same
problem in the last 4mo. Check engine
light keeps coming on, very annoying.
Would look to buy something different
next time. And this is our 4th BMW.
Nav system is antique and does not
offer in dash cd... There should be
away to interface ipod or mp3 format.


Best Features

Performance, handling


Worst Features

Uppdate the nav/phone/stereo system. Reliability is very poor.

Review

we were looking for an SUV and this was
really the only option with this much
to offer...all the american models were
out...poor quality and the others
available just did not cut it....lexus,
porsche and Land Rover...excellent car
for the money..too bad they sell them
all and there is little room to
negotiate the price down..but anyway
well worth the cost...


Best Features

drive...excellent drive like a sports car, tight feel and sturdy controls


Worst Features

The park distance control needs to be available on every unit..not an option.....either that or provide a camera type view such as the japanese cars do...

Review

Excellent power and handling. It is
far smoother than a Mercedes 430 I last
owned. The navigation system is not
easy to use. It is difficult to
program in destinations. It will also
not accept addresses at times and wants
intersections. The new sunroof is
amazing large. Dual climate controls
up front and a separate one for the
back. The ski bag is great for skiers.
It allows the up to 2 skis to slide
through the center of the back seat but
remains covered. The trunk space is
small - this was the reason I
originally bought the Mercedes 4 years
ago. There is obviously no 3rd row
seat option. It is still a fairly
small SUV and easy to park in tight
spaces.


Best Features

The 4.4 liter engine


Worst Features

More trunk space

Review

This is an SUV for people who have
always loved driving performance cars!
You will not feel like you've traded
the fun of driving for the utility of
an SUV.

The car has an incredibly strong feel
for the road and positive powerful
control. The 4.4 sport package is
exceptional, and worth the extra money.


Best Features

Love the performance! Feels a lot like a 530 but heavier. Really like and use the Nav system. Like the rain sensing wipers.


Worst Features

Get the CD loader in the front. Need a third row seat option. It's hard to fit a bike in the back unfortunately....

Review

I'VE OWNED THREE X5'S. tHE FIRST WAS A
3.0 LITRE WHICH WAS REALLY COMFORTABLE,
HANDLED WELL AND HAD GREAT BREAKS, MY
NEXT WAS A 4.4 IS WHICH ALTHOUGH IT WAS
AN EXCELLENT VEHICLE GOT TERRIBLE
MILEAGE. IF TRADED IT IN FOR A 2004
4.4 WITH THE VALEVTRONIC ENGINE AND THE
SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.
gETTING BETTER MILEAGE, BUT WHAT i LOVE
ON THIS MODEL IS THE BIGGER SUN ROOF,
THE COMFORT SEATS (PREMIUM PACKAGE) AND
THE GREAT UPGRADED SOUND SYSTEM. tHE
VEHICLE IS POWERFUL, COMFORTABLE,
QUIET, ALL COMPETANCE AND GRACE WITH A
KICK ASS ENGINE WHEN YOU NEED IT.


Best Features

COMFORT SEATS - GREAT LEATHER AND ADJUSTMENTS. GREAT NEW EXPANDED SUN-ROOF. TOP OF THE LINE SOUND SYSTEM. GREAT BRAKES. EXCELLENT NEW ENGINE AND TRANNY. SOLID STIFF RIDE WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR BACK -TYPICAL BMW! QUIET. PARKING SONAR/WARNING


Worst Features

UPDATE THE EXTERIOR LOOK EVEN MORE - IT IS GETTING A BIT TIRED.
