Fantastic Driver — This vehicle combines the power and handling of a sports car with the utility of a SUV. It has great creature comforts and although you pay top dollar for them, the add ons are worth it.. Great cruising range due to it being a diesel and getting 28 plus miles per gallon on the highway at reasonable highway speeds (70 - 75 mph)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Great Car At A Great Price! — This is a great car. It looks good, reliable, comfortable, etc. I really can't say anything bad about this car! Lots of room in the back seats for passengers and tons of space in the back/truck area. Love this car!

Suv That Drives Better Than Most Cars. — I've never really been much of a SUV or truck guy but when our baby boy was born, priority and preference were gone. We needed something big enough to for our growing family and began looking at the X5. What I can say is that the 3.0l turbo motor really makes this SUV get up and go and the handling and braking are so superb, you might just forget you are driving an SUV!

X5 35d — We wanted an VW touareg tdi execuline; bought this for almost $20k less. Satisfactory. Nice perormance, good economy, good drivers car. Not a fan of the front seat, uncomfortable on long rides. Great acceleration, superb handling. I don't like the x drive 4wd. the way it cuts power, even with the button pushed to remove the control, is not good when you are fighting snow storms. All in all, satisfactory, but not superb.
