Love My Suv+ — The fact that it only uses premium gas and it is very sensitive even with premium gas. Best to trade these vehicles in before the warranty runs out unless you have the money to make repairs. A very comfortable vehicle for long trips and I cant hear any road noise even at higher speeds.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking vehicle with smooth ride and very comfortable.

Cons: Only uses premium gas and expensive repairs.

Gorgeous Bmw — The pros of this care pretty much sums up the most I liked about the vehicle, it was reliable and sure was fun to look at. The breaks and handling were superb. I felt safe in the vehicle because being an X5 model it is spacious and comfortably sits 5 people. The car was fun to drive because of the sun roof/moon roof, this part of the car stretches back into the back seat so all passengers can enjoy it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Heated seating, spacious atmosphere, navigation system, 6 Disc CD changer, Tape player

Cons: No AUX cord

Best Car I've Ever Owned — The 2006 BMW X5 has by far been the best car I've ever owned. It is so powerful, yet luxurious. We purchased a 2010 Cadillac SRX and the BMW X5 is still the preferable car for us to drive. It is a beautiful machine. It has so many attractive ammentiies, from heated seats and steering wheel, to a vast panaramic moon roof. The back seats have privacy shades that were great for blocking the sun.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Beautiful exterior and interior design, roomy, powerful, lots of amenities

Cons: The only negative I ever experienced was that the battery is located in the back, underneath the spare tire. This makes the cost of replacing the battery higher, and you should definitely have all your service work done at a BMW service center.

I Would Buy Another One At Anytime. — This car has great power and handling. Good safety feel. Love the heated seats and the full moonroof is great. I like that it is already prepped for long trips with the roof bars and a full size matching BMW roof box along with the towing package. Only things that aren't so great is the maintenance and repair costs and BMWs only use premium fuel. This car lives up to the BMW quality and sportiness.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks are sleek and more sporty than other SAV's.  Great power, comfort seats that are heated (front/back), power seats in the rear, 6 disc CD changer, towing package, N2 in the tires.

Cons: Repair , maintenance, and fuel cost.

Great Overall — See above, love the huge sunroof, GPS, power everything, drives amazing in the snow! Decent trunk worked well for a family and our belongings. Has heated seats and steering wheel which are nice in the winter. I love it and definitely recommend it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, quality vehicle, a lot of features, great handling in the snow

Cons: Expensive to repair and fill the tank. Also BMW's can't have car starters because their security systems are too high tech.

You Won't Find Another Like It On The Market Today. — This 2006 X5 4.4i is an amazing sports activity vehicle. Smooth, comfortable, a joy to drive. Phenomenal acceleration for its size and weight, and I have averaged in mixed driving 20.1 mpg. I hate to sell it, because this car is fabulous in all respects.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfort, handling and acceleration.

Cons: Nothing.

Get The V8 — Excellent braking and handling, throttle response and acceleration adequate, needed fuel pump mods to get acceleration comparable to larger engine. No repairs needed but electronics are temperamental and parts expensive. Interior and exterior are beautiful. Cost of ownership is relatively expensive, but it is fun.

Pros: Baller

Cons: Get the V8

Amazing Suv But Wish It Could Be Bigger. —

Pros: The heated steering wheel is amazing in the winter even when you have gloves on. The panoramic sunroof is a great addition as well. It brings in so much more light into the vehicle, and the rear passengers can enjoy the sunroof too. I like how the Hockey Edition package included the Executive Package as well. The xenon headlights swivel and come to level when you first start-up the vehicle. The 3.0 L I6 engine is very powerful for being the smallest one offered for the X5 range (I've often found myself braking to slow down because I didn't realize how fast I was going). BMW's 4 year/80,000 km worry-free maintenance is heaven-sent. Everytime the BMW had to get something checked up or fixed, it was free. Since this BMW is based on the 5-series sedan platform, it drives like a much more refined sedan than SUV. There is minimal body-lean in cornering which is great for an SUV. Cons: The interior dashboard and console come straight from the previous 5-series generation. The current generation 5-series includes iDrive with a revamped interior, so I wonder why that interior didn't carry over until the 2nd generation X5 (2007 - present). That interior looks outdated, in fact. The "premium" sound system didn't sound so premium, but it was pretty good. Overall, this SUV is segment-leading. I only wish the plans for the X7 went through, because this SUV is only a mid-size. I would really much prefer a full-size SUV, but you do really get a lot of "sport-car" in this one.

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

Pros: BMW is the ultimate driving machine.

Cons: Maintenance after the 4 year/80,000 km worry-free warranty will be expensive.
