Great car buy the manual shift
Hand brake needed replacing.
My X5 5sp manual has close to 90k miles on it and we have had ONLY a handbrake replacement on it, I change my own oil, brakes filters etc, I've read a lot of negative comments, my advice would probably be to buy a stick if you have tranny issues. We looked long and hard to find one and it has be well worth it. I drove an Acura MDX that had transmission failures TWICE!! So I'm pretty happy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
