Yes to BMW X5
By jpe123 on


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


The 2005 BMW X5 is my first BMW.
I was amazed at how fun this car was to drive.
The X5 is a sports car, not an off road vehicle.
Don't buy this car if you intend to do a lot of off road driving.

The X5 handles like a dream even at high speeds.
The top speed is about 128 MPH.
At 128 MPH the x5 handles like my Land Rover did at 70 MPH.
Speed and handling are definately the X5's best features.

The X5 is dependable.
If you have any problems it will be with the electrical system.
BMW has power plant, drivetraine and suspension down pat.
They have a few things to learn when it comes to electronics.
I have had problems with tail lights and electric door locks.

Best Features

Engine, suspension, transmission and braking system.

Worst Features

Electrical systems.
