    A Lot Of Bang For The Buck.. (used Of Coarse) — 23.5 MPG for a 5800 lb fully loaded Sport Utility Vehicle at 80mph is pretty darn good. A very stable fun driving highway SUV. luxury and sport. Haven't had any issues yet. Can't get the wife out of it long enough for an oil change.

    Pros: Fun for an SUV

    Cons: window switch locations, interior ergonomics, cup holders or coarse.

    An Overall Economical And Fun Suv — A sport, nimble piece of german engineering.... a really fun summer car, and max's favorite vehicle! the giant sunroof is a lot of fun, though it tends to catch a lot of dog slobber! it's a nice change to drive from the full size range rover, much tighter and sportier.

    Pros: it's a BMW...duh

    Cons: ...nothing?

    Greatest Suv — This truck is insane, not only are the lines of the truck gorgeous but the truck is a beast on the take off as well. quite simply this truck moves, 3 different ways of driving from manual to auto. Braking is spot on. The interior is a reflection of the exterior and the truck is flawless. gas mileage is to be expected in a big V8, and maintenance, well figure it for yourself it is a Bimmer. i would never sell this truck it is fun for the weekend and practical with the family.

    Pros: It's a BIMMER, what more can you say

    Cons: Gas prices are killer

    Bmw X5 4.8is — FAST!!!! This car is defiantly the fastest SUV available. All u have to do to make this car go speeding off is just press the pedal a little a bit u r off to 60mph in 5.5 if u reall try to push this car to its limits. Not just the performance is amazing in this car the Pure BMW prestige is on it to. With its 20 inch rims with low profile tires and the amazing body kit that BMW has put on this car has just made this car basically perfect.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: What is there to be negative about this car.

    4.4 Love It — not fast enough, and eats gas. i love it tho'. The DVD nav is absolutely terrible. and it has a tape deck!?!?!? and cd + dvd?!?!? odd. ipod connection is a hassle. This thing handles like a dream, compared to other 'trucks'. It really will move when the gas is turned on. At speed it sticks to its line, and never leaves me hanging on for dear life in over steer or understeer. I have taken 30mph corners at over 70mph and it did it unflinchingly.

    Pros: handling.

    Cons: navigation is terrible.

    2004 Bmw X5 3.0 — Absolutely love it- just hard on gas. But it's comfortable, strong, heavy, smooth, safe, responds well, is reliable, looks great and very roomy. Fantastic road trip vehicle. Not too good for city driving but hands down the best SUV in its class! Handles remarkably well on curves and a very stable ride. Steering may be a bit tight for some women; it accelerates quite well for a 3.0 and has awesome bakes. Had very little issues in 4 years of ownership. Aside from astronomical gas bills, have never paid a cent to maintain this vehicle. BMW covers nearly everything! Still get a lot of compliments on it! All in all, its a fun ride and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Pros: Safe, strong, great handling and response

    Cons: Gas guzzler

    Nearly Perfect Grocery Getter. Drives/feels Like A Roomy 5 Series. — A great SUV (BMW calls it an SAV) that's more of a performance sedan than truck. Tight suspension and very responsive. Tremendous agility considering the weight and center of gravity. Very quick to 60, and fast as hell for its type. Panoramic moon roof makes for a very cool interior vibe.

    Pros: Styling, performance, ride, visibility, craftmanship, lack of "fluff" in cockpit.

    Cons: Mileage...  it's got a drinking problem.  Low storage compared to traditional SUV's.
