2005 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Got a heck of a deal compared to blue book pricing - This car has been great. Love the sleek design, big sunroof and great handling. Unfortunately I've already learned that it performs well in side impact. The fuel economy is not great but a little better than advertised. I think that on the highway I average about 25mpg. In the city about 18. If you drive it nice it's not terrible. Lots of room for all passengers and luggage. This car really is about as close to perfect as I could hope for - I think when I trade I will do so for a 2010 X5 Diesel in 2-3 years. Woo hoo for more fuel economy.

Best Features

Sun Roof, Steering wheel controls, Seat Warmer, Steering Wheel Warmer

Worst Features

Wish my bluetooth phone was able to be linked. Wish I had the navigation. I am going to purchase an after market nav unit with bluetooth as soon as I have 2000 extra bucks.
