2005 Bmw X5 — i really like the XDrive AWD system, i feel very confident with it in the snow. The driving position feels good because it is high, but the car has a lower center of gravity due to the 50:50 weight distribution so it feels like a much smaller and lower vehicle.

Pros: Great handling on dry and wet roads, confident driving.

Cons: base inline 6 engine is a little underpowered, and very poor reliability.

Absolute Luxurious Car With Power & Safety That You Can Haul You Family Or Gear In Effortlessly! — If you are looking for a reliable SUV which will give you outstanding safety, performance and agility, a BMW X5 will get you that. Acceleration is exhilarating. Stopping distance is astounding. The vehicle is built super sturdy. Cargo space can handle bicycles, camping gear, the kids toys, you name it. Check one out, you won't be disappointed!

Pros: Excellent power and handling. Makes you feel safe, and you are, X5s are built like tanks! Reliability is excellent!  Turning radius is amazing. Excellent visibility. An outstanding performance SUV.

Cons: Not as good fuel economy as a Prius or Economy car. It is not American made.

It's A Suv That Makes A Statment — I loved driving in this car, I feel tall and I can see everything. The comfort of heated seats, navigation, and performance sound system is just another few little add-on that makes the vehicle more appreciative. I particularly love the build-in pull up shades for all windows, that is a big plus when it comes to blocking blazing summer sun. The color was one of a kind, very rare, nice earth tone mossy green.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sophisticated, powerful, Sharp. Reliable German engineering. Panoramic Visibility

Cons: Gas Mileage

Amazing — comfy, drives like a dream, perfect for long roads because it flies too. handles really well for an SUV, the Xdrive is very helpfupl in any weather, even though the suspension could have been a bit tighter for better handling at higher speeds.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: comfort

Cons: expensive maintenance

Car had so many issues over time and it still had low mileage for its age. Common consumer complaint is bad valve seals causing smoke while idling. Dont buy unless you can fix or can afford.
