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


This new BMW X5 is a shocker. The SUV/SAV is so cheaply made on the interior that it buzzes and rattles over all roads. My 12-year old insisted that the back seats felt like sitting in the plastic bleachers at a school ball game. I like BMW and I'm shocked that this car ever left the test facility. It's all engine and suspension, and performs well, but the build quality is cheap. The leather seating surfaces are hard and felt like vinyl.

Worst Features

Take a cue from Acura/Lexus/Audi on how to build solid interiors. Black plastic rear bumper breaks up color flow, especially if you buy white. Doors don't feel solid when you close them.
