A Good Ride, If You Can Maintain It. — I liked the look, mileage and brand when I first saw the car. The dealer was willing to negotiate on the price, which made it more affordable. It was also clean and available for collection. This car is a lot of fun to drive, and feels very safe.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks, Handling and Value

Cons: Mileage and Maintenenance

My True First Love — This is the one that sealed my fate and made me a BMW guy for life! I enjoyed the X5 so much that I eventually began a career with BMW in the sales department. Now I get to experience ALL the different models every time I go to work.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Awesome power

Cons: Bad mileage in the city

Reliable 2004 Bmw X5, 4.4i — Truly drives like a luxury car, and the stability and "heaviness" of it you can just tell is what makes it safe and an all-around great family car. Only wish this vehicle had a 3rd row of seats offered in newer vehicles.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: SAFE, sturdy, and great looking SUV.

Cons: No third row seats needed for a growing family

Nice To Own If You Can Afford One — I like the luxury and room inside. It does cost a fair bit to run around town but a lot beeter on the open road. I feel very safe in wet weather and the view from up high is good.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the luxury

Cons: overall cost
