Great handling. Superb power. Plenty of run for the family.

Outstanding. — I love this car, it looks awesome, it handles great, it has plenty of power, plenty of cargo space, If you can afford a vehicle like this than there's no need to worry about maintenance cost. You should really test drive this car, you'll fall in love with it.

Nice For Its Money — BMW X5 Xdrive 35d is the best model you can get. The car is mainly used for long journeys as it is cheap for fuel and has got the best MPG out of all of my cars. Never had any problems with the car, and it is quite fast. It looks nice on the exterior and interior

Pros

Technology at its very best. Pleasure to drive and to work on.

Cons

Expensive to maintain. If you are not a DIY kind of a person and do not have a mechanic, who is a friend, it will cost you good amount of $$$ to maintain this car at its top condition.

Top Notch Vehicle — In my lifetime, I've owned many different cars by many different manufacturers: Ford, Chevy, M-Benz, Honda, Jaguar, Cadillac. Two years ago my wife purchased her first BMW 328i. After I drove it one time, I fell in love with BMW brand all together. I then purchased my first BMW X5. Since then, I've driven only BMW's, learned the cars inside and out. This is the best German engineered vehicle that I have known. Better then M-Benz S600 that I used to own in 1997. I am completely sold on BMW's and will not switch to another brand for nothing. Top notch car manufacturer today.

Excellent Car To Own & Good For The Looks. — Performance - acceleration is excellent especially at pick up, good & effective brakes easy to handle. Build Quality - Perfect. Appearance - attractive interior, needs a little pimping on the exterior. Cost of Ownership - not cheap to maintain, gas is a little expensive. Fun Factor - it feels good to drive.

Sport Mid Sized Suv — this BMW is a very luxurious piece of machinery. the acceleration is really quick, the engine is very nice, when you are right behind the vehicle and it drives off it has a pretty loud exhaust on it. the exterior of the BMW is fast looking it has a good looking exhaust tip on it. the interior of the car is all black leather and has a great nav system on it and has a pretty big stereo system in the car. this car is fun to be in and i love the mid sized SUV type cars.

2009 Bmw X5 3.0 — The Ultimate SUV, agile, tight, precise, refined, and just sporty. nice room but could be a few inches bigger. Sunroof is large and makes the interior feel open. Top quality interior and all the gadgets you want.. You have to drive it to appreciate how few other suv's can handle as well, except maybe the cayenne.
