Review

Full Disclosure. Ive been in the automotive service and repair industry for almost 40 years. That said, I knew of the maintenance and repair issues these Beasts have. And No, An extended warranty wont cover the large expenses (as they are considered normal wear and tear). I bought the vehicle for a song and a dance. 2nd owner, 109k and beautiful. But i also prepared my own repair fund for it, and will probably gobble that up in no time. These are expensive to repair and maintain properly. Budget $2500.00 a year for it and Enjoy the finest performing suv out there.....especially for the money.

Review

Never have had a problem, it's a 2009. Last week had to have left front headlight replaced. Been very satisfied with it. Just the other day a friend ask me about it, he's thinking seriously about getting one. Love the steering, the way it hugs the road, the pickup, in fact it all feels like it fits tight, I feel safe!

Review

I was seduced by its good looks and big engine. Our X5 has been a maintenance nightmare. Something very expensive fails on this vehicle about once every 6 months. Out of warranty fixes has cost us about $5000-$6000 per year since owning it. The latest news is it failed to pass smog due to value leaks. My BMW tech told me this is common for this engine. Well, now I have to spend another $6000k ($500 in parts, 45 hours of labor!) to replace the value seals just to get it to pass smog. This is my second and last BMW.
