"After looking for two years I bought the loaded 4.8 three months ago. I had high expectations for a $77K SUV. The vehicle has a known (by BMW) issue with the transmission and radio (computer). Rides terrible and very rough shifting. Been in the shop over 20 days since I bought it and it still has not been fixed. I feel bad that I made such a terrible/costly mistake."
"I took delivery of my 2007 3.0 X5 in February 2007, and have about 12000 miles on it. I have had only 1 problem and had it into the dealership 1 time. The tailgate wouldn't latch. I am averaging about 21 mpg on the highway (70 - 80 mph) and about 16 in the city. I love this vehicle and am so glad I got it. I traded my 2000 ML 430 for this. I was at the Benz/BMW dealership to order a new ML and drove the BMW and was hooked. Also, the included maintenance is a major plus!!"
"I owned jeep grand cheroke and Nissan exterra before, but this 2008 BMW x5 3.I is no comparicing bmw is an unbelivable vehicle. It drives like a large sedan excelent transmission you can drive in auto or manual if you are in the market for an suv go get one I swear you will not be disapointed.."
