Awesome family performance SUV!

Cons

Nothing -- this car rocks!

Perfect Performance Oriented Family Vehicle! — The X5 just keeps getting better. The 50i has the same performance/acceleration as my 335. This is one FAST SUV! Don't get me wrong, it's big and heavy, but it performs like a car half its weight. What's more, the 50i uses less fuel than the 4.8 it replaced! It's better, faster and more fuel efficient. Perfect performance oriented family vehicle! I love it!

Pros

This was a beautiful vehicle and I loved the exposure Car Gurus provided.   One of my favorite features is the instant value dollar amount.   Helps pin down a great price

Cons

Third row was useless for anyone with legs!

Beautiful X5, Finds A New Home! — I thought the vehicle was so much fun to drive, and handled like a dream on dry roads. I do a lot of mountain driving and noticed, When there was snow, ice or even rain on the roads, the vehicles ability to hug the roads, diminished greatly. I even purchased brand new tires at 27,000 miles hoping for better handing, but was sadly disappointed. I also needed a larger vehicle. The third row was unacceptable for an adult, and hardly fit my 9 year old.

Best Suv On The Road — I have owned several BMW's this is one of the best! the 35d has incredible power and fuel economy, I average (in real life) 24 MPG that is incredible for an SUV and it has more power than our 3car and handles equally as good. BMW should have brought these diesels into the US market years ago! I would recommend the 35d to anyone. I give BMW 5stars for this X5

2012 Bmw X5 50i Sport Black/black — Couldn't be happier with this ride, which I bought slightly used less than a year ago. Look forward to driving it for years. Extremely powerful, fun to drive, comfortable, roomy, sturdy, and very driver friendly - but sucks gas when driven aggressively.

Pros

This car is a blast to drive and has incredible power. It is incredibly comfortable and brings the quality that you would expect out of a BMW of this class. The only cons would most likely be gas mileage but lets face it 400 horsepower and 20 MPG is pretty good all things considered and if you can afford to get the car ar you concerned about the MPG?

Cons

A Blast To Drive. — The exhaust note on this car is incredible. The car moves swiftly and if you want it to will scream down the road like an uncaged animal. All of the aspects of the car are what you would expect when you purchase a BMW of this caliber. As far as SUV's go it doesnt get much better, except for maybe the M version.
