Beware of the X5 - Very Disappointed
By mattshahidi on


2008 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


At first the X5 was great to drive until all the problems started. What we did not know about the X5 is that it has a history of electrical problems. BMW has yet to fix them for 2009. If you are unfortunate to have these the dealers will never be able to fix them. Be aware if you have a fatal or any other warning light it will show up in the computer, so you must tend to it right away to avoid liability. As for contacting BMW assist, forget about it if you have a problem on a weekend. Better yet, just have a second car. Less disappointing that way.

Best Features

Looks are nice, interior and gadgets are what made me buy the car.

Worst Features

Fix the electrical problems. The car can be unsafe to drive
