2001 BMW X5 highs and lows by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/13/2008. Trim: 2001 BMW X5 4.4i, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Great body style Heavy duty and designed to drive fast on the autobohn
Cons: Electircal problems I had to replace many things I would never replace on a Japanese car from window regulators to door lock actuators to MAS air flow sensor. Battery under the spare tire. Cheap plastic parts under the hood. I'm afraid to lower a window due to bad window regulators. Door actuator will not unlock.
Overall review: Nice SAV but it could be the best if BMW could learn from the Japanese about electrical issues and reliability.
