Rides like a 5 Series sedan, NO WAY!
By GregM27265 on


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


The X5 will leave most other SUV's in
the dust including the VW Toureg,
especially climbing up a twisting,
winding mountain road. However, it will
bounce you along like an 18 wheeler.
Fun to drive, yes; on a long trip
though, it is pure agony. Styling, it
excels. Safety, that is one of the
primary reasons for buying it. Would I
do it over again, no way, not since I
have driven the VW Toureg V8. Although
the Toureg is not as fast, it rides
like a car, handles like a sports car,
and unlike the Porsche Cayenne, it has
better trim, and cost tens of thousands
of dollars less.

Best Features

Rain Sensor Wipers and extremely strong V8.

Worst Features

Replace the rear storage area cover with retractable spring loaded cover like the Lexus RX. The gear and track system on the X5 is not typical BMW engineering.
