Great quality but will and can break you bank with repairs.

2006 BMW X5 3.0i

BMW stands for always bring money with you, which is what the employee told me when I was replacing a tire that cost $170. It is a very safe and reliable car like my mechanic told me. I have had to replace the transmission, catalytic converter which is not cheap at all, the secondary air flow sensor, my air conditioner and heater do not work properly. So it is really cold during the winter and super hot during the summer. I have had leaks in the reservoir, in the house which I had to consistently add water because I kept getting the check coolant levels indicator. I do not work far from home, so the goal is to have my mechanic get my car back to 100% and see how long my car will last. My car in actually in good condition on the inside and out. I highly recommend this vehicle but it does cost money to repair it.

BMW x5 is a great car and I would recommend it to everyone.

2006 BMW X5 3.0i

I love my BMW and I was very lucky to be able to drive it. In terms of performance, it gets pretty good gas mileage, rarely has problems, is very durable so you feel safe in the car, and the engine is amazing. When you step on the gas, the car takes off and I like that about it because the car feels really responsive. The car is also super reliable and hardly has breakdowns or needs to go to the shop unless for a normal oil change and tire pressure check. The seats are leather and heated so they feel incredible in the winter and pretty comfortable to sit in. Lots of space in the backseat as well if you are driving in a group. Features in Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, nice dashboard, GPS system built in, CD player in the back, and netting that goes over windows to block sun and bugs.

Didn't have to spend a big penny for luxury on a good used SUV

2006 BMW X5 3.0i

A BMW X5 year 2006 is a good reliable SUV luxury and wonderful when it comes to winter time it's easy to maintain but pricey on parts its a 13 year old vehicle with awesome features depending on trim level but mine I believe it's full equipped good on gas and enough space will recommend it for someone that's looking for a luxury SUV that isn't trying to spend 40-60k

BMW x5 with optional manual driving and sport mode

2006 BMW X5 3.0i

My car has been good in the past but recently I have had problems with the car shaking because of the engine when sitting in idle. Also the window regulators in this car a bad and continue to go bad often. I've had to change 3 already. Lastly in the inside of the car is luxurious and pretty comfortable and it is good on highway miles

Really safe and Durable vehicle

2006 BMW X5 3.0i

Initially, when I first purchased my beamer the feeling that engulfed me was safety. Never have I experienced that with any other car. Now, I've had my share of out of pocket expenses with my beamer. But,afterwards no more pressing troubles. Once you addrress the problems that crops up,you're good to go.
