Totally Unreliable!
By dr d. hill on


2005 BMW X5 4.4i AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Fun car to drive! No fun in the snow with 4.4i Sport package. Electrical nightmare! Check Fog lights continues to menace us after "fixing" the problem four times by Phil Winslow BMW, Colorado Springs. Ashtray rattles, armrests squeak, rear storage cover flimsy, on-board computer on the blink, door locks faulty, rear heated seats faulty, ghost in the rear view mirrors, steering wheel whines when turning, tailgate locks after opening then closing doors, small and very expensive. First and last BMW I will ever own! Just recently bought a Lexus GX470. What service. I should have never left Toyota/Lexus!

Best Features

Speed, handling, engine, design, and finish. Ater having these problems I decided to keep it hoping problems will go away. I still enjoy driving it fast and hard around corners. I hate having to take it in every month for diffent issues. I don't have to wash it since the dealer does it for me!!!

Worst Features

Better dealer service and commitment to product. Electrical, off-road handling, and space
