2008 X5 Owner Reviews (5)
Cache name-Not worth the trouble or money

The car a 2008 X5 with 4400 miles is back in the dealer for the 3rd time in less than a month. This time the Parking brake would not disengage-I had to call BMW-They were baffled,finally a Service Tech got on and we went back and forth because I was 60 miles from home with no car if they towed it, he tells me give him a few minutes,all of a sudden the Asst Mgr for service from My dealership calls me on my cell and has me Manually Disengage the car to get it to drive and then bring it to him(there is a tool in the car esp for this purpose-seems like maybe its happened before huh). For 60K plus this is BS, esp when I get a Toyota as a loaner car-I pay for a BMW--be xtremely careful if looking to buy this vehicle-looks beautiful-fun but TROUBLE.
Worth the Money

This is my third BMW and second X5. There is a reason why I went back to BMW and the X%. It is fun to drive and room to go get groceries. This is the Ultimate Driving Machine...even when you have 3 children in the backseat!
Just purchased a 2008 BMW X5

The X5 is an AWESOME looking vehicle!!! I have already had problems with my rear driver side window malfunctioning!! I knew that the dealership would say it had something to do with me getting the windows tinted!! (YEAH RIGHT)!!! The service person knew that I was not happy!!! Hope this will be taken care of soon!!! $78,000 for a vehicle, this better be the only problem with this vehicle!!!

I pruchased this car in March wanting to downsize from a Seqouia and looing for something a bit more stylish. So far ai have had numerous ridiculous liitle things wrong with it in addition to a major AC problem ( whole system replaced at only 1000 miles!!!) Tires are noisy ( run flats) radio cuts out when you hit a bump. Chimes go on for no apparent reason or it will say a seabelt is not fastened when they are!! needless to say I want my toyota back!!
