Overall:

This X5 is just GREAT! Durability and style meet in a vehicle that I feel safe driving my family around it. It has met and exceeded all of my needs and expectations. I truly couldnt ask for a better SUV in my opinion.

This suv is a full package. The engine sounds tough and it holds the road like a champ. Only downfall is cost of maintenance. It’s pig. But if you commit to the care. You’re rewarded with good, swift fun that sounds great and turns heads

It is an exc. SUV to have and own, The best one on the market today. It handles well. On and off road. It is multi purpose for special events and for the rough stuff too. I would recommend it for families again and again.

Overall:

German Attitude, Performance, & Bossy Looks- But $$$$ Up Keep — I leased a brand new 2010 Mercedes ML350 before this X5. The E53 (X5) as is the technical term- outpowers its German counterpart. The ML didn't feel tough and infact it was like a puffy and sluggish sedan for soccer moms in the OC. The 4.4i Sport package handling is excellent on the freeway, curves, and going up hill. The set back is it is very bouncy going over speed bumps and potholes. It's not the best daily driver, but then again this is a second car. It's an excellent value as a used car because for the price I bought it, you can't easily find a car that's got what this has. Brand new this car cost close to $62k after options and taxes. I paid $8k. That's alot of car for the price. By comparison the 2007-2012 X5 became too tame and lost their urban attitude in favor of a very rounded SUV that look more like a wagon.

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

Pros: Does not feel like a soccer mom from the OC suv.  Good power, good ergonomics, tough looking SUV from all sides.

Cons: Dependability - constant leaks and little glitches with electronics. Gas guzzler- 14 mpg avg. Labor rates $95-115hr labor. 2X-3X repair $$$$ compared to American/Asian counterparts.

I did enjoy many of the features, but overall I prefer the more sporty feel of the X3. It definitely drove well for its size. Didn’t feel as large as it is, easy to drive. Read More
