With this redesign, BMW dialed back the sharp handling and taut ride of previous models, trading some of their sporty feel for a cushier ride that makes it seem, well, less BMW-like. The cabin is now more luxurious, solid, and quiet. Fit and finish are impeccable and it's loaded with an array of up-to-date electronic features.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"The active blind spot detection system malfunctions. This was a problem at purchase and is in the shop being fixed now by a BMW dealership under warranty"

Anonymous, IL (2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Display screen goes blank

"The Display Screen goes into a restart mode. The GPS & Stereo are not available for about 2 minutes while it reboots. Very intermittent. I have gone 5 months without any issues and then it will occur a few times a week. Dealer just reloaded SW, didn't fix the problem."

Anonymous, CA (2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"I can use bluetooth for phone calls the music/podcast interface is subpar. The index of podcasts available is always completely random. Podcasts are listed in the wrong grouping. Then if you select one there's no way to stop it and reselect another s"

Dan B., NY (2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Hardware replacement

"The Harmon Kardon amplifier unit stopped producing audio disabling not only sounds from radio, etc. but all other audible warning systems such as those provided park distance system. Because an OE replacement was going to be more than $1,200, I chose to purchase a used replacement from an auto salvage operation. I hope recoup some of the replacement's cost of $600 for the aforementioned by reselling my old core which is being repaired by an outfit in Romania."

Anonymous, CT (2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

Finally, after talking with the manager, they found a recall for an evaporator temp sensor circuit-they had to talk with national BMW tech rep. The a/c would work fine when you first got in the car, but if you stopped for short period of times, and then got back in the car, it would stop blowing cold air and then no air would come out.
