Seats are comfortable and the car drives very smooth. Heat seat great and backup camera and sensors. There are some confusing things about it like the windshield wipers are either on or intermittent the intermittent mode took me forever to figure out and its just a strange setup. The heat doesn't blow out enough, sometimes I like the car air to really hit me this doesn't. The door locks are kind of a pain in the butt, overtime I exit the car I have to manually unlock the door or have the key in my hand, if I have my bag in the back and the key is in it if I get out of the car and open the back door its always locked. Tried to reprogram it on the computer but to no avail. Also the GPS is a little bit tricky when programming.
2 years ownership so far Tons of luxury features Went to IKEA brought giant items with room to spare(Finally) It can drive slow like a king or like a sports car when u in the mood, it drives best on highway, the screaming 2 stage turbo can left all other cars in the dust easily Great gas mileage, nearly 600 highway miles for each tank Fantastic looking headlights and grills, I wish the newer model x5 can keep them Build like a tank, ride like a king and queen, great on snow, now I wish there is more snow in Chicago Thick frame, the car warms up really fast in couple minutes in winter time, unlike my previous Accord's skinny frames takes forever Cost average 2k to maintain per year, which actually cheaper than my 11 years old Honda Accord
I think this is the perfect family car. It drives and handles exceptionally well, very impressive considering its bulk and its weight. The car is very well designed inside and out, with beautiful styling and well laid out controls and panels. Just like an iPhone or a Mac Powerbook, you can easily tell by using it that the designers & engineers have thought of EVERYTHING when they made this vehicle. I think of it as an understated high performance luxury car that got everything right. I bought mine fully optioned AND with 3rd row seats, so it can haul a lot of people if needed but still handles very well. It has been a pleasure driving and using it.
