Good but not good enough
By Bill Hopper Jr on


2010 BMW X5 xDrive35d 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


We bought a BMW diesel X5 and there is a lot of good things too say like room, looks, fuel economy and performance however in the age of information all I can say is SHAME on BMW. With all the so called advances surrounding information systems BMW has missed the mark by more than a country mile. The important variables like oil pressure, coolant temperature and battery voltage level are all missing. This information is all "vital" since they provide valuable insight when a system is "starting" to fail. I prefer and I am sure that many other drivers would prefer to have maintenance done before you are in a location or at a time where help is hours away. Again SHAME on BMW & our salesmen.

Best Features

Plenty of room and the diesel is great giving us reasonably fuel economy and plenty of power. Also having all wheel drive lets us go in snow areas to ski.

Worst Features

Needs a battery voltmeter, oil pressure and water temperature gauges. Sun visors are too high. Needs a tailgate rated to hold two people. Needs a 6 speed stick for added fun in driving a sports model like this. Also it needs an oil dip stick so we can check the oil level. This is more reliable.
