Teriffic — Best looking and the most fun you can have driving an SUV. Strong performer in every category - inside and out. With the BMW maintenance plan owning a BMW is very reasonable. Quality materials and craftmanship seperate BMW from the rest.

Pros

Mostly Everything about it, its luxurious inside to its sleek and stylish outside.

Cons

Paying for gas. Big 400 mile tank costing over $100 to fill up and only about 16 mpg city and 20 hwy.

Bmw X5 Review : Owner — The gas mileage is a bit bad though as you have a 400 mile tank but filling up is 100$+. And yo uget onlyabout 16 mpg city. ouch. Other than that it doesn't have any other malfunctions. Watching my brother drive it it looks to be a fun car to drive. The handling is also quite good for a big SUV and it accelertes terrificly. It does make a weird sound when you move the seats occasionally but that may only be mine.

Pros

The best fun driving car I ever had. Its full of power, excellent road handling, great looks inside / outside, amazing tire rims, fully computerized with advance technology, extremely reliable family car. Its the ultimate driving machine.

Cons

A bit expensive,but its worth it for a  car with such advanced engineering features. Its not so good on fuel economy, but this is expected for cars with such powerful engines. The spare parts are a bit expensive, but this is expected for genuine and highly reliable parts.

Its The Ultimate Driving Machine. — This is definitely a great car to drive. I have driven many SUV's before, but the BMW X5 is in a class of its own. An amazing combination of power , beauty and technology all engineered in one machine. Without any doubt : Its the ultimate driving machine.

It's Like Driving A Bmw 5-series With A Higher View! :) — I love driving this "car"! It handles so well in both wet, dry, snow and ice conditions. I do have winter tires installed during the winter. The technology installed in this vehicle is great and competes well -- obviously, it gets better every year and I would like to see some of the options that the newer models have.

Great, Fun Car To Drive But A Bit Rough — 4.8 Sports package, Premium package, panoramic sunroof, sport rims, keyless go. the acceleration is amazing. consumes too much gas, BMW maintenance program is great and i haven't had to pay much for service. in all the car is amazing to drive but will get you with its 12 miles to the gallon.

Its An Amazing Car To Have! — Excellent car, for speed, acceleration, handling and off course sexy sexy looks! You can play around with the body of the car by adding a body kit, exhaust system and super chip! it will transform it and make it a head turner!

Pre-zimmer Bimmer — My 4th Beemer! Why can't Audi and Mercedes make better cars! Built like a Sherman Tank. Looks like a 3 series on Steroids. Handles better than a C2 around Clearwater Bay!! Go for the 4.8i. Mine takes 2 days to get around HK. Pre-midlife crisis transport. Get out of my way earthling!
