Ocean Blue BMW X5: A beautiful car with ugly problems!

2003 BMW X5 3.0i

My 2003 BMW X5 has definitely been able to get me where I needed to go. The interior is beautiful, and I have never had any problems with it. For further detail, the seats do not tear up at all, the steering wheel doesn't peel apart at all, and the overall look of the interior is clean and modern. However, the internals of the vehicle itself can cause difficulty. I have had quite a few problems in the past with my vehicle and the way it runs. The axel has given me issues time and time again, even after getting it fixed sometimes you can still hear it. Also, the car would never fully align, meaning the steering wheel always had a tilt to it, which wasn't a big issue, but it seemed nearly impossible to fix without spending a fortune. Also, I've had a lot of issues with the AC. When I turn my car off when it's hot outside, my ac will still run for a little bit even while the car is completely shut off, and no one knows why. As long as you take good care of the car, it'll take care of you. It's just an expensive car to have to upkeep, which you must keep in mind! Lastly, the paint on the top of my car continuously peels off, and I'm not sure why.

BMW x5 made with the driver in mind.

2003 BMW X5 3.0i

My x5 has a few problems I cannot do down the window of the driver side. Cannot unlock the door from the outside and have to always leave the car unlocked. When it rains water leaks into the car. Sometimes the car overheats if air conditioner is left on for a long period of time while driving. Pros is that it has a large trunk. Nice sunroof. When you reverse the passenger side mirror goes down so you can park better and it is very helpful.

Great drive, expensive to maintain.

2003 BMW X5 3.0i

It is a used model. I have had issues with the transmission, fan belt and the oil has been changed a lot. It does matter what kind of oil you used or you will have to keep refilling it. Great performance but the repair cost will add up. It is a very comfortable car and spacious and provides a smooth driving experience.
