Pros

Lots of room but sporty and powerful. Fits easily into my one car garage. If you maintain it like you should it's not going to give you trouble. Very reliable car and it handles like a dream.

Cons

Can be costly to repair.

Worth Every Penny — I like the look and feel of the car. I like that I can fit my family and it's great on long rides. My teenager and grandmother both love it! Best thing I can say is that I would buy it again.

Bmw X5 — Good handling, quick, strong and sexy. My Girl loves it. She drives it all the time. She doesn't let me drive anymore. But in driver or in passenger seat, I must say, this car is a real eye catcher. I recommend this SUV to anyone and everyone that likes BMW and wants to own a 4X4!

Pros

They do not require repairs as often as other brands do. Just regular maintenance like oil change, spar plugs, etc.
They hold their value.

Cons

It has a high ticket price.

Looking For A Car That Holds It Vaue; But Provides Style, Luxury And Reliability — I like evertything, I can not complain, no worries.Some people won't buy BMW's because they think that maintenance is really expensive but the truth is that is not expensive. I have owned this car for since 2 years ago, nothing is licking, faulty or needs replacement. The only wrong thing that I found is the radio display has a pixel problem.

Awesome Vehicle — Overall a great car to drive. Very responsive feel regarding handling, braking and maneuvering. Random issues with electronics operating sporadically. The build of the car is solid, high quality parts and feel to the components throughout the vehicle. Could be a little easier on the pocket book with regards to maintenance and repair - but well worth the expense as the driving experience is 2nd to none.

Great Driving Characteristics, Poor Build — Not much to say. Anybody would love driving this car, if you can get it out of the workshop and enjoy it. BMW tried to do too much. Too much weight and they still tried the make it handle like a true sports car. They achieved it but not without a price. The electronic aids they used will drive you crazy.

Love/hate Relationship — Research before purchasing, make sure your income will be able to cover cost of repairs. I had a lifestyle change to having to retire on disability and the car I love is draining all my savings, boo hoo.....buyer beware as usual.

Great Vehicle! — I love the power that the 4.4 liter V8 has to offer. The seats are very comfortable. The heated seats are great in the winter. There is plenty of room for the family. It has plenty of cargo room for shopping or vacation.
