2007 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


This is my 3rd X5, and was, I thought, a no brainer to purchase. Wrong! Part of my disappointment may come from the fact that my previous X5s were 4.0s This car feels underpowered and slow in many situations. The seats are very different from my old X5. I have yet to find a comfortable setting; have driven 10,000 miles so far. The X5 has changed its size slightly, but enough that it is difficult for a short person to enter. My runflat got a flat at 5,000 and they would not fix it, only replace it for $400+. Car has had some computer glitches; got towed away DEAD at 3,000; dealership never could figure it out. The info screen goes dead sometimes for no reason. Not a great BMW.

Best Features

Wood trim, real time traffic option.

Worst Features

Useless running board, seat alarm, worthless run flat tires, super uncomfortable seats, slow and chuggish, gear shift configuration, reverse camera won't go off when in Drive. Third row uncomfortable even for an 8 year old. Noisy and rough ride.
