2001 BMW X5Visitor, Fresno, CA, December 21, 2011 13:08ALL BMW USED TO BE CALL "THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE" NOW THEY CALL "THE ULTIMATE FIXING MACHINE" WHO THINKING OF OWNING ONE BETTER THINK TWICE. GET READY TO EMPTY YOUR SAVING. FRIENDLY WARNING.
2001 BMW X5Visitor, Monsey, NY, March 09, 2011 11:37I purchased this car with 26000 mles on it. It now has 166000! Read the reviews and had many of the same issues. Wipers just stopped, the dealer tightened the linkage and used lock tight. Prob solved. Locks frozen in winter, try to get some lubricant in there if you can. Solved my problem and I had this issue for years. Console light intermittantly indicates that my headlight is out, but it is not. No major repairs and it is still going strong. It seems to burn oit though and I always keep 5 quart container of Mobile 1 and check between changes. Love my car. Would get another one but I want to see when this one gives out first..
2001 BMW X5Visitor, Ogdensburg, NY, January 30, 2011 12:53Bought vehicle new - now has 125K miles. Great vehicle - excellent tow vehicle (5000 lb boat). Love the vehicle BUT costly to maintain and repair - has cost $0.15/mile for R&M.
2001 BMW X5Ptjs, Council Bluffs, IA, November 06, 2010 17:36Really nice car has 82000 had it two yrs now and only thing bothers me is the stock brakes leave a ton of dust on the wheels. If you open the back hatch with the button inside and then open & close any of the front doors it will cause the hatch to stick as it sucks the hatch down on the lock.Enthusiast
2001 BMW X5germansue, Burlington, NJ, May 04, 2009 10:36I bought my X5 new in 2001. In the beginning I had tons of minor issues, which were all covered under warranty. I only had one major repair since the extended warranty was up in 2008. I absolutely love my truck and hope to drive it for many more years to come.Enthusiast
