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


I always had a 4runner which I loved
but I wanted to move up to BMW and keep
my SUV feel so I purchased a BMW x5. I
love it. The drive is smooth and the
3.01 has a lot of kick on the freeway.
On long drives the interior is
comfortable and relaxing. The seat
memory is a great feature. The ride is
smooth and a blast to drive. Steering
is steady and it handles great changing
lanes and on unexpected moves. The
option to drive in the sport mode makes
a fun change when you are bored. The
gas mileage isn't great but what I
expected for an SUV and when I
purchased it. The price was not much
more that any other high end SUVS and I
feel like I got maximum value.

Best Features

Power everything and the onboard computer. The dual air controls are a must and ability to drive in sports mode is fun. The back window automatically locks when you lightly lower it and the computer tells you everything so you always feel safe. The 4 year maintenance is great.

Worst Features

Make the 12 disc changer standard and a bigger glove box. There's a little blind spot when you look over your shoulder so improvement can be made in the design to eliminate that.
