Editor's Overview

As luxury SUVs go, the BMW X5 was one of the first to combine the height and versatility of an SUV with the ride and handling of a performance sedan. While other manufacturers may have improved on the concept, the 2013 X5 remains relevant, offering a wide variety of models, engines and features, all with that unmatchable BMW driving edge.

It's paid for and it's it good shape.

I'm a BMW fan and like the virtually trouble free, maintenance free driving it provides. I dislike the run flat tires and lack of possibility of purchasing a spare (donut) that prevents me from getting non run flats.

- Ralph B

it's an awesome care and I highly recommend everyone gets one or has a chance to drive one someday

I love how fast and big my suv is - it is sporty and has a lot of power, but is very cool to drive. I don't like that the lights stay on in the trunk - when we went to drive in, we couldn't sit with trunk door open

- gigi h

It is reliable and Its sturdy.

I have not had any issues, I love the stability in on the road. I would've loved for the year and model to have a bit more modernized dashboard. This has been my 2nd x5 and I would purchase another.

- Shelley N
