The Ultimate Junk Machine by Joji C on 09/25/2013. Trim: 2008 BMW X5 3.0si Sports Activity Vehicle, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Designed is great, comfortable ride.
Cons: I have a used 2008 X5 and it has over 65000 miles only, when the engine had an indication of overheating. I slowed it down and shut the engine off to minimized further damaging the engine. I was able to drive it home really slow at about 20 to 30 miles an hour with the blinkers on and of course the coo;ing fans running at high speed to cool the engine down. Further troubleshooting reveals, a thermostat and water pump issue. BMW dealer will repair them for $2200, but of course with this low mileage X5 I don't expect this to go down so soon.
Overall review: BMW quality on this to me is mediocre, so buyer beware. Hope that BMW will recall all X5 from 2007 and up with an electric water pump and replace all of them free of charges. I am one disappointed consumer.
