  • Wow,high maintenance POS like one of sisters.My AWD Subaru Legacy wagon did not fall apart & loose interior buttons & it took a lot longer for the headliner to start sagging. It did lots of long trips.Air suspension was expensive but new air shocks installed & returned it to good as new."Retired" due to age 1991-2014, traded in on a new Forester. For the new price of the BMW X5 it needed to be perfect, for the price of the Subaru I forgave the cost of the air shocks as needed & I was never locked out. Never ever buy a BMW unless you have deep pockets or it is a lease deal, I'm convinced these things & others are made to last the term of two lease agreements.

  • Think this video can be applied to most used BMW's and mercedes and audi and other over engineered luxury cars. If you don't have 10k for repairs don't buy them. Especially if you are on a budget. If you want luxury and you are on a budget buy a corolla. Because driving a corolla is more luxurious than uber or the bus.

  • @5:35 thus far you havnt named much thats singular to the x5 or bmw's in general; buttons tend to come loose fragile as they are, the evolution of gaming and intergrated machines in all aspects of life slowly and surely made controls better (and then still you can opt to be cheap) , the window; its a common problem, i currently have it on my fiat left aft; its an easy enough fix except its a bit of a nuisance to get it all open , generally you can get the inner working for cheap at any salvage yard and take any same spec drive motor to replace the burnt out one. As to your 'check lights' regular service indicator based on the life time of lights, if they were replaced but not reset then the warning is in error, or your lights need to be soon replaced, this is nothing new for lights. Washer fluid...well fill it bozo.. it isnt going to fill itself.

  • Yeah, I've owned 3 x5s. Loved all three, really safe cars in high altitude snow country, and traded them all in at 100k. No issues at all. None. I maintained them. I took care of them. Totally reliable. The car you featured showed all the signs of being ridden hard and put away wet too many times. Abused (by the previous owner and then by you.) But let me be clear. Having driven the BMW X5 for over 300k miles over the past 15 years, they are amongst the best cars I've ever driven or owned. But we all know they are expensive to repair.

  • I had pretty good luck with my X5 4.4i but then again when stuff was broken I fixed it and didn't just let the problems pile up and sold it before 60000 MI. However in that 60000 Miles they only thing that happened that was big was a wire harness and that was covered under warranty. This example looks like the guy/gal never fixed anything and just let it all pile up until it was absolute crap.

  • Any car you purchase used has the potential of being a money pit especially if not well maintained. Being in the car business you new this when you purchased it which I was surprised you stated paying $1000 for the car. All German cars are very expensive to repair... including the VW. The 4.4 liter is actually a good engine and the early X5 is also a very reliable car if properly maintained. I know as I had a early produced 2000.. produced in 1999 version with the 4.4 sport package. We ended up putting over 120K on it with very minimal problems on it. I did have the rear Air bags go bad around 90K as most airbag cars almost always never last beyond the 100K. Everything else was just basic maintenance. We ended up trading it in on a new 2007 GL450 and actually had more problems with this one than ever did with the X5. Fortunately most of the repairs were covered under the factory warranty except the front Air bags that went south about 5k AFTER the warranty expired. I will say this, your very fortunate on the repairs rates you pay in your area. Because some of the work you've done would cost 2 to 4 times more in other parts of the country. Are you getting a tremendous break or are the quote actual for any customer who request the same service? Thanks and keep up the good work on your LVworld site. Frank

It had full service history, never let me down and the guy that bought it off me had it till it had just over 192,000 on clock and someone smashed into him and wrote it off!! If looked after etc like any car they will last. Clearly the one in the video has been seriously neglected

  • The simpler 3.0 ones were good. Or maybe I got lucky. I bought a base model '05 a couple years used, with 20k miles on it. I drove it to 190k miles and it never had any problems other than a few pixels going dead in the dash, and then there was some sort of resistor in the blower fan that they had to fix and that cost some. And the sunroof stopped opening. Other than that I just had the BMW dealer do the prescribed maintenance. It wasn't terribly expensive. But it didn't have a V8 or air suspension or any of that stuff as in the did. I think that era of X5s was one of the best designs -- it was just the right size and drove great.

  • Totally disagree with this review. e53s have to be maintained and if they are they will continue to give good service for many years and 100s of thousands of miles. You can't buy an X5 with 160k that has been totally neglected and then say that all e53s are the same. They do have some weak points no doubt and the 6 cylinders are more reliable than the 8s but this review is total BS as far as I am concerned. I own a 2001 Z3 2.5, an e46 2.5 and an X5 3.0. All great cars!

    Jonathan SteenJonathan SteenPirms Mēneša
  • The reason why a lot of BMW's become money pits is because people don't look after them early on. They then get sold cheap and some poor bugger has the joy of paying to get everything put right. They are often driven very hard and do lots of miles in a fairly short space of time. Also, they are an expensive cars to run and maintain so they aren't a young persons car.
