I just love my X5. from the sunroof to the heated seats. It was my dream suv. It's a really great suv to have and to drive, so much comfort when iv get home from work. i just sit in the X5 from 15 to 20 minutes before i get out and go in the house.

The 2008 BMW X5 feels very solid and well built. It has about the same driver leg room (I'm 6-4) as a much bigger SUV such as a Lincoln Navigator or Ford Expedition but handles and drives far better. With the 3.0 in-line six, perfomance is very good, especially in Sport mode. The V8 version is even better. So far, I am averaging 21.1 mpg with a mix of in-town and highway driving. Overall, I am very happy with the X5.

For performance in a SUV, there is nothing better than the BMW. Gas mileage is as expected for a high performance SUV (averaging between 16-17). BMW needs to improve the electronics of the vehicle. Mine has had window issues and the navigation system is spotty at best. The premium seat package is worth it, some the most comfortable I have had. Be aware that the run flat tire will cost you serious money when it comes time to replace them and be HP tires, they don't last as long as an average tire. The do stick o the road and give you a very confident ride. While sticker shock may keep you from considering the BMW, once you drive one you will get hooked. I saved a significant amount getting a 2008 rather than an 2009/2010.
When the best features of both SUVs and wagons were incorporated into a single vehicle — the crossover — the automobile industry was revolutionized. Crossovers have the ample storage space and off-road capability of SUVs, plus the added practicality and drivability of a wagon. What’s not to love about a crossover?
