Great Ride, Interior could improve
By Loncar1 on


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


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.
