Overrated, Over-priced by Andrew, Markham Ontario, Canada on 11/30/2010. Trim: 2005 BMW X5 3.0i, Owned 5 years.
Pros: - Great appearance - Excellent braking power and very good handling. - Takes corner better then what's expected from a large vehicle - Comfortable seating, capable of handling full capacity without hearing passenger complaints - Love the panaramic sunroof - Decent factory sound system with DVD for the rear passenger
Cons: - Interior design is very boring - No digital display (Cluster) - Many parts are made out of cheap plastic which falls and breaks easily - Had the replace a small piece of decorative PLASTIC on the interior door panel for 600 BUCK! That part cracked after my seatbelt hit it - Curb side mirror works when it wants to. Had that mirror replaced 3 times and the problem still exist! - Air flow sensor had to be replaced along with a few hoses - Consistant transmission problem - Engine has absolutely no power with the 3.0 version - Parts and labour is astronomical but again, its a BMW - WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER! - Buy one if you enjoy spending time at the service centre NEVER AGAIN!
Overall review: This vehicle looks good, but, is FAR FROM GOOD!!! To be honest, it does make me feel safe to be driving in because of it's strong structure and excellent braking system, but, I do not have the time to go visit the BMW service centre every other week. Town and Country BMW l(ocated at Markham Ontario, Canada) has the WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!!! I will NEVER BUY ANOTHER BMW again due to their poor customer service and BMW's disappointed quality!
