Family Fun — Love the way the car drives and handles. BMW made a great car with this X5. Very roomy, perfect for family or friends and provides an extra row of seating (3rd row.) Sports mode offers the extra performance you may need.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car to drive it can be really fun and looks great.

Cons: Gas Mileage could be better, but average for its size.

Its The Ultimate Driving Machine. — This is definitely a great car to drive. I have driven many SUV's before, but the BMW X5 is in a class of its own. An amazing combination of power , beauty and technology all engineered in one machine. Without any doubt : Its the ultimate driving machine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The best fun driving car I ever had. Its full of power, excellent road handling, great looks inside / outside, amazing tire rims, fully computerized with advance technology, extremely reliable family car. Its the ultimate driving machine.

Cons: A bit expensive,but its worth it for a  car with such advanced engineering features. Its not so good on fuel economy, but this is expected for cars with such powerful engines. The spare parts are a bit expensive, but this is expected for genuine and highly reliable parts.

Bmw X5 — The BMW X5 is a stupid car. First because it isn't an off-road suv, absolutely not, and costs too much. Yes, you can say that is fast, but why i need a fast suv?? i don't need it, so i think that it's better to buy: or a range rover, that is an off-road suv, however better than a BMW X5, also if i must admit that range rover looks orrible...

Pros: it's confortable

Cons: costs too much, and isn't an off-road suv

It's Like Driving A Bmw 5-series With A Higher View! :) — I love driving this "car"! It handles so well in both wet, dry, snow and ice conditions. I do have winter tires installed during the winter. The technology installed in this vehicle is great and competes well -- obviously, it gets better every year and I would like to see some of the options that the newer models have.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance. Styling. Having slower cars move over.

Cons: Few minor rattles. Navigation not the best.

Teriffic — Best looking and the most fun you can have driving an SUV. Strong performer in every category - inside and out. With the BMW maintenance plan owning a BMW is very reasonable. Quality materials and craftmanship seperate BMW from the rest.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Everything

Cons: Pricey

Pros: Its the car to own

Cons: Nothing
