Very Happy with Diesel X5
By NorthernVABMWdriver on


2009 BMW X5 xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


This is my 6th X5 and probably my favorite. I like the idea of driving clean-diesel and a more fuel efficient SUV without much trade off in performance and comfort. Acceleration is excellent; it feels faster than performance numbers indicate. Diesel engine clatter does not intrude into the cabin; you would not know it's has a diesel engine from the interior. I custom order my BMWs and this one took only 9 days from production start to delivery.

Best Features

Comfort seats are a must-buy option. Heads up display. Taught suspension. Tight build quality. Upgraded sound system is very good. Roomy interior.

Worst Features

Reduce the exhaust rumble. It's "sporty" but can be annoying and intrudes excessively into the interior. OEM tires are poor performers with short tread life. Remove the backup camera from the technology package. It's a useless waste of money that takes too long to start, so I just turn it off.
