Review

18 MPG spirited driving, 23mpg on road trips 4.4L V8 is powerful, 6.7 to 60mph, 8 quart oil pan provides good engine protection for high speed driving. Perfect speed at 130KLM or 80MPH with great safety, handling and performance

Review

Incredible SUV with a 6 speed manual transmission..........The 6 speed is the only way to get this car.............You will not regret it.........Though the pick up is nothing to write home about, the car handles like a champ, easy to maintain, and will give you years of pleasure............Just change the oil every 5,000 miles and rotate the tires................Do the routine maintenance as the car requires, and you'll be a happy camper with an extremely reliable car..............But just remember, it's hard to find a six speed manual X5, especially loaded with navigation, heated seats and panoramic roof; but if you find one in great shape, don't be a cheap idiot; pay up a little for the rare feature of a six speed, and years of fun driving will be in your future.

Review

I have a 2005 3.0d Sport which has covered
88k miles. It is fully loaded and built like a tank and yet performs like a sports saloon.
One would have to look hard to find another 2-ton
SUV that can achieve the 0-60 sprint in less than 8 seconds.


Best Features

Slick auto box. Descent control. Road holding. Heated seats. Rain-sense wipers.


Worst Features

Softer seats and suspension.

Review

I was completely disappointed from BMW's X5! I bought this car with a high expectation and found me in a never ending repair loop.
- if the engine was idle - smoking, smoking after you throttle up again
- oil leaking - estimate around $4500
- HVAC quit working - estimate $2500
- tires, tires, tires ...
- light bulbs never ending story - I changed by myself and spend in bulbs only almost $300
- windshield washer pumps
- passengers door handle - estimate $450
and, and, and

But nice was the comfort and the handling.


Best Features

handling, comfort, space, loading


Worst Features

engine and alignment
