2002 BMW X5 4.4i from North America
An SUV with the feel of a sports car
I have owned a BMW X5 4.4i for 5 years and have had minimal problems with it. I have never had a problem starting the car, even in sub zero temperatures in VT. The performance and handling are great, but the gas mileage is poor. While I have owned BMW sedans previously I believe that the X5 definitely stands up to BMW's good name.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Very hard to believe on your comment. I went through all kinda trouble from first year, but it was OK, still under warranty and many recalls. To me the Hyundai SANTA-FE is a much better SUV than the X5.

I have a X5 with 85000 miles. Never a problem like seen on other comments.
My complaints would be the rear wiper fluid doesn't squirt out in a fan pattern, so it just dribbles down the glass, and I get a lot of brake dust on the front wheels. The cup holders suck, and the tailgate sticks if you use the inside button.
Drives like a dream... I can do most maintenance myself, and for nearly ten years, it has caused me zero problems. Either I got the only good one, or every Tom, Dick and Harry who had problems came here to complain.
