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


Review

I am sooo pleased with my 2004 4.4 X5...Got the Sport pack with 19" wheels...if you are a Town Car person, you may find the sport package too stiff. Great looking body is rattle-free, the brakes and steering are well sorted and it handles like a vehicle half its weight. Tons of sooth awesome-sounding V8 power mate to a tight Steptronic tranny. Articulating xenons are terrific at night. Premium sound with DSP is killer! Panoramic roof is way fun. The Nav takes a few days to sort out; if you can't grasp it, stay home.

Great performance and handling; very practical. Good to go out to dinner or to Home Depot; super sound system; simple, stylish interior; only inconvenience is that front seat window controls are in a less convenient location under the door handle.


Best Features

Handling.

Move the front door handles.

Review

This is the car that you find a reason
to drive it. Great looks and plenty of
comfort features set this vehicle above
others of its class. We have found the
X5 to be a very safe vehicle ... my
wife survied a front-end impact that
resulted in severve damage to the
vehicle, but without injury to herself.


Best Features

Styling and safety features (side- impact air bags, etc.


Worst Features

More rear cargo space

Review

While BMW is a well-known name in luxury cars, the X5 falls short. Many options have to be added on with a hefty price tag. Some of the options should come standard on such an expensive vehicle. While there are some problems, the BMW is very responsive with handling and acceleration/braking.


Best Features

Braking....


Worst Features

Rear door should be single, not split, temperature controls should be knobs, limited rear cargo space, rear headrests interferes with rear view viewing, gas mileage needs to be improved, cup holders are terrible, glare sometimes makes controls hard to see, cheaper price tag or more options included.
