    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.

    Pros: the luxury

Power everything. Decent mileage. Solid, quiet, comfortable, fun to drive. Great on long and short trips.

    Bmw X5 Fun Car To Drive — This car is a lot of fun to drive. It will take off when accelerating from 45-70, but there is a delay in acceleration when you first push on the gas. The braking is great and the car drives awesome in the snow with snow tires. The car takes premium gas so it is more expensive to fill up. I have had no problems with it since I got it 13000 miles ago. I would recommend this to a friend.

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Premium Gas
