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!

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.
