The style, ride comfort and great handling, the power, the incredible mileage I get with eco-boost, the reliability, and the quality craftmanship of the interior and exterior are beyond compare. Of the fifteen cars I have owned in the last 30+ years, this is the best.

I've been driving this car for a little over a year and it still excites me. With the upgraded seats it's comfortable for the driver and the passengers alike. There is ample room in the back seat for three ordinarily sized adults.
Performance wise, it's a marvel. It does whatever you ask it to do, depress the accelerator and it goes, it will go as fast as you want it to, and quickly too. It handles like a dream. The ride is smooth and the interior is quiet.
Reviewers said the I-Drive was difficult to learn and operate, nothing is further from the truth. It's intuitive and easy to operate. One complaint I do have is that the back up sensors are slow to activate and most times I have negotiated my way out of a tight parking space before the sensors even start working. Once you have parked and placed the car in park, the sensor does not stop beeping. Even the back up sensor in my Ford works better. That was an expensive option, and I am disappointed that it doesn't work better. All in all this vehicle is top of the line!
FAST! But is already getting work done
2013 BMW 535Steve Coker - Parker, CO03/23/2017
The car is sleek and fun to drive and is getting about 25mpg, which I think is pretty good. I like the features in the car and it has been a pleasure to own.
I do currently have it in for warranty work and I guess they found a transmission leak as well as an oil leak, which is unnerving at 22k miles, but they are covering it all and gave me a new X5 as a loaner while they fix it... so I would say just be sure to get the extended warranty.
