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.

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.

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.

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.

Suv But Drives Like A Car — Great off the line and cornering. Very solid and secure feeling while going down the road. Just big enough but not too small so it's the perfect size. Oil changes are very easy for anyone to do. Easy to maintain.

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.

5 Speed Manual Bmw X5 — Performance - Acceleration not bad for a 3.0l SUV, the handling is amazing the x drive system does its job and allows this suv to handle better than alot of cars. Guess thats why BMW calls it an SAV. Build Quality - The windows can break if someone or something pushes down on them while the motor is running Appearance - a bit better looking then most suv's fof this size range. Cost of Ownership - (5 speed)around 18 to 19 mpg in town up to 24 on the high way. Fun Factor - this car is a blast to drive. Not like any other SUV i have ever driven.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
