2012 BMW X5 xDrive35i Premium 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


We have had 12 brand new cars in ten years-if I had bought my X-5 ten years ago I wouldn't have owned so many different models. I Just upgraded from a 2010 BMW X-3 due to having a second child and needing the extra space.
We are currently stationed in Germany and so we got our X-5 tax free(yes we pay tax to license it in some states; still doesn't come close to $63,000 USA price-and they're built in the USA. The benefits of the technology and drive far outweigh any cons people would put on this vehicle. If you have a problem with the I-drive, then you need to take computer classes. The computer is easier to operate than any GPS that I've ever owned. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!

Best Features

Everything! Except gas mileage:( I've only had mine for 3 and 1/2 weeks but I am only averaging 13-14 MPG with city driving. Haven't had a chance to take it for a long drive just yet. Once it reaches port in the US; I'll get to drive it to MIssouri-so jury is still out on highway MPG

Worst Features

None at this point except MPG; when you pay this much for a vehicle paying for gas shouldn't be a problem.
