    Awesome Vehicle — Overall a great car to drive. Very responsive feel regarding handling, braking and maneuvering. Random issues with electronics operating sporadically. The build of the car is solid, high quality parts and feel to the components throughout the vehicle. Could be a little easier on the pocket book with regards to maintenance and repair - but well worth the expense as the driving experience is 2nd to none.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Incredible performance, safety and fun to drive

    Cons: cost of upkeep/repairs. Typical BMW.

    Worth Every Penny — I like the look and feel of the car. I like that I can fit my family and it's great on long rides. My teenager and grandmother both love it! Best thing I can say is that I would buy it again.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Lots of room but sporty and powerful. Fits easily into my one car garage. If you maintain it like you should it's not going to give you trouble. Very reliable car and it handles like a dream.

    Cons: Can be costly to repair.

    Great Driving Characteristics, Poor Build — Not much to say. Anybody would love driving this car, if you can get it out of the workshop and enjoy it. BMW tried to do too much. Too much weight and they still tried the make it handle like a true sports car. They achieved it but not without a price. The electronic aids they used will drive you crazy.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Performance is superb. Love driving this car

    Cons: ridicolously expensive to maintain.

    Great Vehicle! — I love the power that the 4.4 liter V8 has to offer. The seats are very comfortable. The heated seats are great in the winter. There is plenty of room for the family. It has plenty of cargo room for shopping or vacation.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great Vehicle! Plenty of power, very comfortable.

    Cons: None

    Suv But Drives Like A Car — Great off the line and cornering. Very solid and secure feeling while going down the road. Just big enough but not too small so it's the perfect size. Oil changes are very easy for anyone to do. Easy to maintain.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: All wheel drive, sporty

    Cons: No third row seat

    Looking For A Car That Holds It Vaue; But Provides Style, Luxury And Reliability — I like evertything, I can not complain, no worries.Some people won't buy BMW's because they think that maintenance is really expensive but the truth is that is not expensive. I have owned this car for since 2 years ago, nothing is licking, faulty or needs replacement. The only wrong thing that I found is the radio display has a pixel problem.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: They do not require repairs as often as other brands do. Just regular maintenance like oil change, spar plugs, etc.
    They hold their value.

    Cons: It has a high ticket price.
