It's not a 330i but...
By PNC on


2009 BMW X5 xDrive30i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Went from a 2001 BMW X5 to a BMW 330i and now back to a 2009 X5. Needed the X5 to pull a boat, which it does with ease. The 2009 is much improved over the 2001 in terms of build quality. The 2001 X5 did have mechanical issues. I do miss the handling of the 330i but for a SUV, the 2009 X5 is as close as it gets!

Best Features

Build quality, iDrive, navigation, backup camera, 3.0 inline 6-cylinder engine, transmission is like silk, I laughed at the auto tailgate but now I would not get an X5 without it.

Worst Features

Just touched (2 mph max) a cement pole at the bank ATM and the front bumper cracked. Wish the car had 2-wheel drive option instead of always 4-wheel drive.
