Bmw With A "take All" Attitude. — A nicely aging all-around SAV. Great high performance utility vehicle - fun to drive, quality built and very versatile daily driver. No issues whatsoever outside of the normal wear and tear. Cost of ownership is moderate relative to its intended use and design.

Primary Use: Family transportation

2003 Bmw X5 4.4i — Performance is great. Build quality is also great. It's a gorgeous car. It consumes a lot of gas. It can give a regular cost for luxury cars. It's a fun car to drive. Overall this car is the ultimate driving machine.

Pros

BMW stands behind their cars with their warranty package and no maintenance for the first 50,000 miles.  No one else does that!

Cons

I don't have any bad news to report on the X5

Good Vibs For Bmw — Probably one of the most comfortable car I have ever owned with the toughness of an SAV. No rattles or squeaks, no major repairs of any kind. It handles great and it is fun to drive. When I wash it, it looks brand new.

Bmw X5 4.4 - Best Car I Have Ever Owned! — Lots of Power for get up on the highway, quick off the line. Very satisfied with the ride and handling characteristics of the vehicle. Its almost like having a rocket ship. For an SUV with all wheel drive, this car is the real deal! Am looking to buy a brand new one soon!

Sweet Ride — This truck is great. Power is amazing for a SUV. Plus it presents like no other in 2003. I bought it used with about 160000 kms and drove for 20000kms without any problems.Anybody looking to buy one. its a big gas guzzler but its all worth it. When you press that gas pedal it feels like a sports car not a truck that is about 4000 pounds.

Smooth — I almost bought one of these last year. It was on sale at the local Acura dealership. I took it out for a test drive, and with 60,000 miles on it it still drove smooth and quiet as heck. Very nice car. I will get one eventually.
