"My BMW x5 has by far been my best/favorite car I have ever owned. It has been so reliable and I haven't had to do any major repairs on it. My only complaints is the gas mileage isn't very good at all and it is quite a big and bulky SUV but other than that I would absolutely recommend this vehicle!"

"I bought this car in 2007 with 20,000 miles.. I've driven it about 30,000 miles since then and I've had a few problems.. The adaptive suspension sensor failed and needed to be replaced, the rear seats no longer adjust their recline, and the HUD has some burned out pixels.. but overall, this car is a quality car.. solid feel, very fun to drive, and still looks great after all these years.. and the V8 sounds amazing and provides effortless power.. as long as you have the money to maintain this car, I'd say its worth a buy"

"Great in bad weather. Fun to drive. Hugs road . Awesome control. Visibility ,handling, safety reasons for buying. Driven it for 10 years no issues. Only down side not one for creatures of comforts , not much for cup holders etc, compared to other SUVs .Cargo good for lots stuff. Has taken us on lots trips skiing without issues through mountains room for all luggage, skis, kids and dogs! Just maintenance expensive after warranty ."

"This has been my favorite car, and I've owned a few. I've had Lincoln Navigators, Towncars, Ford Explorers, Expeditions and an Excursion, and overall, this is the most comfortable car by far. Cold weather package has heated seats all the way around, adjustable rear seats, and a GREAT suspension. Drives like a race car with tight turning radius! With almost 167K miles, it is starting to need a little attention to some things like lights, etc. but I'll keep it a while longer. I bought it brand new in 2005 for $55K (which is a huge investment) but it has been worth it."
