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


Review

The car's performance and design is stellar. The
main drawbacks are the fuel economy and the
interior styling and functionality compared to less
expensive SUVs and cars.
Performance on the highway is excellent with plenty
of power at higher speeds. Cornering is solid, and
the responsiveness is very good.
There are a lot of blind spots towards the rear of
the car and I have had (and heard from others)
problems with the rear hatch closing properly and
staying shut - ughh.
AM radio is terrible, climate control is not very
good, trip computer is slightly old technology that
needs updating (e.g., trip timer, real time fuel
economy, etc.)


Best Features

No question about it, it is the handling at highway speeds and its auto-leveling feature. This SUV drives like a car.


Worst Features

Update the interior, a lot. A climate control that really works. Why BMW cannot make an AM radio worth a damn is beyond me. And, improve the functionality of the steering wheel controls.

Review

Truly magnificent.Smooth ride as one
can not imagine.Powerful engine that
is great on the highway and in the
city. Fun to drive...one feels "at
home" right away. getting 21.5 MPG on
the highway, around 15 in town, only
500 miles on it. You need to watch
yoyur speed, though ...since you don't
realize how fast you are going.


Best Features

Engine. Reatively good MPG. Good "solid" feeling all around.Ride.


Worst Features

No compass on a 55,000 +....? (BMW....you must be kidding.) Storage space should be a little bit bigger.

Review

I went to the BMW Center at Spartanburg
to pick up the vehicle. It is a great
experience and I had the opportunity to
drive an identical vehicle on both the
road track and off-road track at
whatever extremes I had the nerve and
capability to handle, so I can
guarantee it is stable and will peform
as I have come to expect from a BMW. It
is exceptionally smooth for an SUV.


Best Features

The engine, drive train and AWD combination are perfectly integrated. The split rear hatch, the perimeter sensors, the quality of the interior appointments and the exterior design are exceptional.


Worst Features

The cup holders are bad. They will not hold two cups of any shape at the same time. The audio system should offer a cassette/CD combination. The front passenger seat should fold foward for loading long objects.
