    Nice Sedan In An Suv Body. — Wanted to get a smaller SUV but did not want to get some poor handling truck. The X5 has room for 2 adults and 3 kids (plus a third row that can handle 2 more kids). As such the car is great for carpooling. The nice part about the car is that while it is an SUV it also handles very nicely and the interior is nicely done. Overall it feels like a luxury sedan.

    Pros: interior space, handling

    Cons: gas mileage is not spectacular

    Bmw X5 4.8i Se — Classy, Luxurious, powerful, elegant, prestige, well built, drives beautifully, need I say more ? This Car is one of the best cars that there is in the luxury 4x4 market, it is unparralel l and a cut above the rest of the other cars. Some get close i.e Range Rover but it can never drive as well as an X5.

    Pros: EVERYTHING

    Cons: NOTHING

    Bmw X5 — This car has amazing preformances for an SUV,both on & off road. It's got that german quality. X5 might be a bit expensive but it's worth the price. I recomend it to everyone 'cause i had so much fun in it. Bavarians to the best work in car production. BAVARIANS ROCK XD

    Pros: Everything

    Lemon — Must have gotten a LEMON. In the shop to many times to count. The first was after I had it for only two months. Suspension went, rear trunk fixed twice, air vents fell off in my hand, glove compartment leather upper part is curling at the edges and I can't open it, steering wheel peeled off (replaced) . You get the gist! Thinking of complaining and getting a new car.

    Pros: Love all the bells & whistles!

    Cons: In the shop WAY to many times, and it's only a year old!

    Bmw X5 4.8i (e70) — I got this SUV when it first came out back in the summer of 2007. Since it was the first round of production some glitches/problems are inevitable. This SUV has amazing handling, probably the best handling SUV out there. The acceleration is above average, but is no ML65 AMG or Cayenne GTS. The ride quality is can be adjusted between sport mode and normal, riding on 20's and having a stiffer suspension you expect to feel a bit more bumps on the road. Although I didn't go for the third row seat, I saw it at the dealership and I is absolutly useless unless you are 3 feet tall. The head up display is really neat, it shows speed, cruise control, and directions on the windshield; so that you can keep your eyes on the road. The rear camera is good during the day, showing turning lines which are super helpful. When it gets dark out, the camera becomes really blurry. In my mind, I think that the X5 has the nicest interior compared to its competitors and a monkey can figure out iDrive. Overall I really enjoy driving this SUV eventhough I can see the gas gauge go down every time I get excited.

    Pros: handling, interior, head up display, exterior (except for the plastic)

    Cons: slight rattle in the trunk (easily fixed), black plastic bumpers, back up camera (night)

    Thing Can Corner.... — Thing corners almost as well as our 645ci. Tons of pep, but transmission shift programming sucks. Other irritating problems here and there, but over a decent ride. -Tinted front windows -Chrome pushbar -Clear Rain guards (soon)

    Pros: Handling, Overall drive, Stereo

    Cons: Transmission programming, computer glitches, non-responsive throttle

    The 4.8is X5 Is A Feat Of German Engineering — My friend has the new X5 with the 4.8 beast of an engine. I love it because you can drive it like a sports car. The interior is really well done, with quality materials. If you like being up high, need the extra space of an SUV (my bad SAV) and a high perfomance car the X5 is the only way to go. 4.8is may give you sticker shock, but if you have the money it is worth it. You get what you pay for.

    Owner for 0 years, 5 months

    Pros: Powerful, optional third row seat, drives like a sports car, luxurious interior, smooth ride for passengers

    Cons: high price tag

    An Suv That Drives Like A Car. — Shockingly good handling when coupled with the adaptive suspension. Plenty of power from the 4.8L V8. Truly easy to live with on a day to day basis. Head up display option is a must! Will not buy another BMW or indeed another SUV without this feature. Have stopped looking at the speedo and very handy for the navigation as next turn instruction is also projected. Still irritatingly slow iDrive. Interiors is luxurious and use of soft plastic moulding. Pretty decent sound system. Bluetooth connectivity is not bad. Seating is comfortable with lots of adjustments for front seat. Perforated leather for heat and cool function. 3rd row seats folds into floor and really is OK for only small children. Cargo space is average. After 5 years old, there was significant failures in the adaptive air suspension. We had a particularly bad run with all 4 shocks failing within a 2 year period. Replacement was very costly as you can imagine. The vehicle is great when it is fully functional, but reliability is a significant concern. Despite the failures, we did end up trading it in for a new model 2015 BMW X5, but on a lease. We would only consider a BMW under full warranty.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handling is second to none for an SUV. Great power for a normally aspirated SUV.  Luxurious. Love the heads up display.

    Cons: Expensive service cost.

    2007 Bmw X5 - Excellent, But Not Perfect — I traded in a 1991 Ford Explorer so you might laugh at the comparison -- there is none, obviously. This BMW X5 is a pure dream to drive. It's like it's always waiting to take off, which is frustrating when you're stuck in traffic. But when you hit open highway and can put this marvel to the test, it's fantastic. Go get one. Update: 2013.05.20 Have owned the X5 for 1.5 yrs now and while it is still very fun to drive and the build quality exceeds most other cars, a little of the shine has warn off with small wear and tear items costing far too much to repair. My CPO warrantly also just expired, under which I was able to get several key repairs done for almost free, so the next 6-12 months will be eye-opening on cost if anything goes wrong. Will update again in a year or less.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, Speed, Suspension, Braking, Engineering, AWD, Styling, Interior features, Sound System, HUD, Navigation, family and cargo space

    Cons: the A/C does not get cold enough; air vent controls break easily and are crazy expensive to repair; iDrive is easy to use, but too simplistic vs. competitors
