"Really amazing car. Works well on and off road, and in very poor, snowy conditions. Tough, but complicated. It's hard to maintain yourself, because of its complexity. It handles crisply and with BMW precision."

"Stick shift handles great (for an SUV). Gas mileage is as expected, but the acceleration is all BMW. Heated seats get hot enough, a heated wheel would be better (didn't get that option)."

"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"
