Great looking vehicle with smooth ride and very comfortable.

Only uses premium gas and expensive repairs.

Love My Suv+ — The fact that it only uses premium gas and it is very sensitive even with premium gas. Best to trade these vehicles in before the warranty runs out unless you have the money to make repairs. A very comfortable vehicle for long trips and I cant hear any road noise even at higher speeds.

Pros

Looks are sleek and more sporty than other SAV's.  Great power, comfort seats that are heated (front/back), power seats in the rear, 6 disc CD changer, towing package, N2 in the tires.

Cons

Repair , maintenance, and fuel cost.

I Would Buy Another One At Anytime. — This car has great power and handling. Good safety feel. Love the heated seats and the full moonroof is great. I like that it is already prepped for long trips with the roof bars and a full size matching BMW roof box along with the towing package. Only things that aren't so great is the maintenance and repair costs and BMWs only use premium fuel. This car lives up to the BMW quality and sportiness.

Pros

Beautiful exterior and interior design, roomy, powerful, lots of amenities

Cons

The only negative I ever experienced was that the battery is located in the back, underneath the spare tire. This makes the cost of replacing the battery higher, and you should definitely have all your service work done at a BMW service center.

Best Car I've Ever Owned — The 2006 BMW X5 has by far been the best car I've ever owned. It is so powerful, yet luxurious. We purchased a 2010 Cadillac SRX and the BMW X5 is still the preferable car for us to drive. It is a beautiful machine. It has so many attractive ammentiies, from heated seats and steering wheel, to a vast panaramic moon roof. The back seats have privacy shades that were great for blocking the sun.

Bmw X5 - The Ultimate Driving Machine — I just purchased the BMW X5 last year. It brought a huge smile to my face when I went to go pick it up. The SUV serves its purpose. I've transported people, supplies, luggage, and I've even off-roaded with this vehicle, and it has proven to be worth its salt while maintaining style and image. I also chose the option of having heated seats and this has retained some good friendships for me in the winter. The panaramic sunroof is huge and is the largest I've seen in any vehicle. Bluetooth has been so helpful with handsfree. Basically, I'm loving my car...

Sporty Ride With Benefits — Engine oil leaks are a problem and expensive to repair; to the point of being ridiculous!!! Also transmission clunks that has been there since new. Not often you feel and hear it, but pretty annoying when it happens. Feels like someone hit your car from behind at 10 or 15 mph.

Gorgeous Bmw — The pros of this care pretty much sums up the most I liked about the vehicle, it was reliable and sure was fun to look at. The breaks and handling were superb. I felt safe in the vehicle because being an X5 model it is spacious and comfortably sits 5 people. The car was fun to drive because of the sun roof/moon roof, this part of the car stretches back into the back seat so all passengers can enjoy it.
