2008 BMW X5Jason Manley - Rancho Cordova, CA12/29/2015
The X5 rides so smoothly, specifically the transmission is extremely efficient and the motor has incredible power! I've had several SUVs over the years and this vehicle outperforms all of them.
What an upgrade

I had 3 "mom vans" in a row and it was time to transition to a "me car." Not that I didn't like those vehicles as they'd served their purpose well but that purpose had ended. I still needed storage space in the car and this has lots. It's also comfortable and spacious in the back seat for when the kids come home. We looked at other smaller SUVs like the Nissan Rogue and they just didn't compare. But you knew that. :)
still love driving an X5

This is my second X5 and I am enjoying this one more than the first! Great ride and pleny of room. I have the version with rests that extend out under your thighs which makes my long road trips even more comfortable. Great sound from the sound system and plenty of visibility even without the backup camera. Love the extra large and fully automatic sunroof.
The only drawback is the 6-speed transmission. At low speed it seems indecisive which is disconcerting for a high performance buff. If you are listening, BMW, fix the tranny and this vehicle will certainly be an ultimate driving machine!!!
