A great car overall with expensive maintenance.

Great car to drive. However it can be very expensive on repairs. Very reliable, fun to drive, and comfortable. Gas can get very expensive depending on how much driving you do. Love the space and room for storage inside the car. Overall a very nice car if you can afford it.

- Madeline S

X5 is a beautiful, spacious, comfortable and convenient car.

It is been going stable for over 10 years and is still a lovely car to drive. It is extremely spacious and safe. The engine is not that loud and the inside of the car is very comfortable. The steering control is very good, as BMW is a sports brand. It is a very reliable car.

- Brittany G

Indeed the ultimate driving machine.

Overall I am in love with the x5. Lots of room, panoramic moonroof, navigation, heated seats, drives strong and looks awesome. I have had a few repairs involving coolant system and ac. From what I hear pretty common with the x5 but definitely repairable. Otherwise I love it!
