Vehicle2005 BMW X5 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewDaughter wanted this because she liked the styling. I should have known better but relented. Bought a 2005 X5 with 48,000 miles on it in summer of 2009 from the only dealership here (Autobahn Motors - in Fort Worth). One of worst buying experiences and service departments ever, but that's a separate rant.
One owner. Looked well taken care of.
Records okay. Since then it's been in and out of the shop. About 7 weeks ago, the low coolant light came on, so we took it to dealer, they checked it, and said it as a busted radiator cap. Fixed that and thought we were okay until light came on suddenly and SUV stopped running the other day. Now Dallas dealership said it was a cracked reservoir. $$$$$

You can buy a replacement coolant reservoir on-line for less than 60 bucks, or get one at a junkyard for $10. You German car owners need to divorce yourselves from the notion that only a dealer can work on your car! Look for an independent German car repair shop.Report it
