"This car is very solid and dependable....it handles great in weather conditions....it's comfortable and has alot of stability. The price is high (but aren't all cars?), but it is definitely one of the best vehicles out there."
"short of PM items which many will complain as expensive, (compare cost to other cars and it is nearly the same) this car rocks. 175,000+ miles and this 2001 3.0 just wont die, 85mph daily on the frwy for 40 miles (80 round) and i never worry . safe and solid when my wife and i have kids the little ones will be rolling in one of these for safety and solidness. (note the 4.04.4 will have problems past 100k miles, compression and seals BUT the 3.0 engine rocks its what BMW knows and has perfected X5 3.0 is by far the best new car and beater in the snow!)"
