Help with X5 buying
Came over from the e36 side, I already have a 95 325IS and am looking to purchase a used X5, I am not very familier with them, looking at 02 to 06 most with @70 -85,000 miles on them, what should I look out for?
Any years to stay away from?
Any engine better that the other 4.4 v8 vs. 3.0 6 ?
What kind of mileage are people getting 6 cly vs. 8?
I do pretty much most of my own repairs and know my way around car mechanical issues.
Would like some information to help make a decision.
I drive 110 miles a day round trip to work so it will be my every day vehicle,
I live in the north east (Connecticut) so we get some snow to drive in.
Stop what you're doing, just relax a bit, with your favorite beverage or whatever does the trick for you, breathe in the fresh air, and consider this fundamental maxim: Nobody needs an SUV. Ergo stay away from all makes, models, years, engine options, drive train layouts, and whatever else.
Thanks! your a wealth of information.
Glad to oblige, hope it helps you avoid making a big mistake.
I purchased a 2008 X5 10 months ago. Best driving car I have ever owned. The 6 cylinder engine provides gas mileage of about 21MPG average and 23 or 24 MPG for strictly highway driving.
