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
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.
big comfortable car, well equipped, goes, stops and handles much better than most cars that size but horrendously unreliable, in 12 months i have replaced, Air bags, air suspension compressor, air suspension hoses, electric window module, innner door carriers x3.......... TYRES TYRES TYRES........wishbones, track rod ends, anti roll bars, heater matrix, reversing sensors, sub frame bushes..........never again will i own a BMW
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.
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
