2013 BMW X5
Upgraded from a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 4x4 to an X5 50i with the performance package (440HP, 480 lb-ft torque) to have something more fun to drive, but to still be able to tow a trailer and bring bulky home remodeling related items home. I like the power, speed and all the bells and whistles that come with a high end BMW, such as heads-up navigation and heated/cooled 20-way passengers seat. I've lived with it for about six weeks now, so I do have a couple of wishes, that may already be fixed on the current generation platform. The ride is hard to accommodate sporty handling. If there is an option available for adjusting the suspension I would look for a model with it. I'd probably turn it to the soft or medium mode for daily driving, and turn it to sporty for some fun. My vehicle previous to the Jeep was a 2008 535i, which also had the iDrive system, so I'm accustomed to it, but it seems like the previous generation interface for iPod music library access is actually better, oddly enough. It's nice that there are three connection options: Bluetooth, USB, or media console - and I wish you could seamlessly switch between the three. I haven't played with it extensively, but it seems like right now I'm stuck in 'media console mode', so I can't just play via blue tooth. Overall, minor gripes for a great performing SUV. I haven't lived with it long enough to figure out the reliability. So far, so good (knock on wood.)
2013 BMW X5
Great car. Rock solid, super comfy and luxurious with a sporty drive. Steering is precise but, a little hard for parking or low speed driving. A bit of a gas guzzler around town but, we averaged 26 mpg on a roundtrip to PA driving 180 miles. Not bad considering our '12 Kia Optima 2.0t would avg about 33 mpg.
