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


Review

With every company making Suv's, each
company is entitled to their own vision
when creating their model. The X5 is an
excellent vechile in the standpoint of
build quality, and luxury features. The
interior is nicely laid out, everything
you would expect from BMW. When you
drive this suv you'll notice it is
smooth. But, it really isn't that much
fun to drive. Very average. It feels
like the Grand Cherokee I used to own.
Living in Michigan, you expect your suv
to hold up in bad weather. The X5 is not
really suited for this. Very average in
bad weather. The Awd system is not
suited for heavy snowfall. My GMC Yukon
is much better, for much less money in
these kind of situations.


Best Features

The interior. The heated seats are a great feature for anyone who has deal with cold winters. The radio is pretty nice. BMW has legendary customer service. You have a problem, they take care of you. They make great vechiles(I own a 745il), this is just not one of them.


Worst Features

The X5 is great if you don't have to deal with bad weather during the winter. Don't expect ab 'awesome' ride. This suv is just kind of average. Not really sure it is worth the money I paid for it. The exterior really needs some work.

2004 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Had to order one without test driving
as my dealership could not keep it in
stock. Super solid vehicle. You feel
like you're driving an airliner with
it's controls and warning beeps.
Drives like a sports car and the V6
3.0 has enough "guts" for this mid
size beauty. Computer a bit
challenging to learn but works fine.
Cannot believe how fun it is to drive
this baby!


Best Features

Styling, Panoramic moonroof is huge, free maintainence, warning beep when I reach my selected spped limit.


Worst Features

Little more storage space, do away with the ash trays, better cupholders.

2004 BMW X5 4.8is AWD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


Review

A superb vehicle all around. Great
looks with the performance to match.
Love the sound the engine makes when
you turn it on. It makes you really
look foreward to driving.


Best Features

Panoramic sun roof, 20" rims.


Worst Features

The car is definately a gas guzzler, but if you can afford to own one the price of gas should not bother you.

Review

The X5 is a great SAV. It is fun to
drive and handles great. The road is
no longer a challange due to my bad
back. The lumbar support option is
well worth the money. Forget all the
other SUVs! This is the ultimate!


Best Features

The comfort ride and lumbar support.


Worst Features

The rear side air bags should not be an OPTION.
