After we put the redesigned BMW X5 through our test program, there was no debate: it’s among the best SUVs we’ve tested. It is a luxurious, slick, and well-rounded vehicle. With each new generation, the X5 has become more refined and comfortable, but less of a crisp-handling SUV. We think this redesign optimally balances comfort, agility, power delivery, and interior quality.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2019 BMW X5 owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Apple CarPlay

"Does not stay connected through wifi with iPhone X -- newest phone."

Anonymous, MN (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Display screen goes blank

"The display went blank twice on different occasions. Also one feature selection would not respond. Both issues have not happened since last regular service."

Anonymous, IL (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"The problem is that the electronics don't always boot up properly. Sometimes it's the phone, sometimes the safety systems, sometimes the headsup display. Typically it requires the car to be shut down and allowed to sit (locked) for 5 minutes and then typically it reboots properly."

Anonymous, QC (2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i 4.4-L V8 turbo)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"screen flipped upside down, car indicator would go off road."

Anonymous, (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"It would not operate properly, often going blank or displaying "nonsense things". It took the dealer THREE times to fix this same problem over a six month period of time. The dealer was nice enough, and I did not pay anything since it was all covered by warranty, but for a $72,000 vehicle, this should not happen. The dealer really did not know how to fix the issues and finally had to get BMW involved. It seemed to be fixed after I reminded the dealer about the Indiana Lemon Law and my demand for a replacement vehicle if it was not fixed."

Anonymous, (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"the GPS took me to a 22 mile dirt rod with several high dips where you could not see what was at the top of the road, and there were craggy rocks at the top of one to the sharp left, taking out my two left tires at the same time, leaving me stranded, without a cell phone at the time, and the BMW people did not send someone the first time I called to find me. I had to call several hours later again for help. This was horrible. Their navigation sends you in circles and to the wrong address in several places. It is not reliable. I would never buy a BMW again as my life would depend on it. They took no accountability for it and had horrible customer service."

Anonymous, AZ (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"Would not recognize where the car was and gave false directions and the map was wrong."

Anonymous, CA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i Unsure)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"Randomly drops phones while in vehicle. Picks up ongoing phone calls outside of vehicle (ongoing calls in home) - which may be of confidential nature. Requires you to turn off bluetooth if making calls in home."

Anonymous, MD (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"this was resolved with a software update"

Anonymous, GA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Radio

"radio stays "on" even after turning the ignition off."

Anonymous, CA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Routine software updates

"I have had software updates twice. Each time the update wiped out my existing set up and since the second time, the BMW Connect app has stopped working."

Anonymous, DC (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"software never automatically updated. When my car was in BMW shop, they told me some has to be plugged in manually to update. It still has not fixed their horrible navigation system."

Anonymous, AZ (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"The problem started with no recognition of key. After the software update many thing started to fail. They replaced many "modules" and updated software multiple time. Then they took it back and gave me the 2020"

Anonymous, AZ (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i Unsure)
Software update fixes

"Again, the dealer could not fix these problems and had to get BMW to finally resolve the issues. The dealer would not have believed me except I had produced videos of the issues. THEN they started to work on it."

Anonymous, (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"The car was so new that the New software system did not recognize the previous year's part numbers installed. Had to be reprogramed by remote from NJ took 3.5 weeks."

Anonymous, VA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"There were software issues with the new X5 that required an update for bug fixes. It took a few months but once BMW pushed the update, the problems were fixed."

Anonymous, MI (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"resolved with the software update"

Anonymous, GA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"Multiple problems were solved by software updates. BMW shipped the car before the software with very poor software quality."

Anonymous, CA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Speakers

"One of the Bowers and Wilkins speakers was defective upon delivery. It took BMW over 6 months to get the replacement parts"

Anonymous, FL (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Voice control commands

"Frequently does not understand voice commands. Very frustrating on a high end vehicle. Ford Sync 3 is much better at this task."

Anonymous, UT (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

Paint/Trim

Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling), loose interior and exterior trim or moldings, rust.

What Owners Say

Loose exterior trim or moldings

"The BMW logo on the rear hatch just fell off. Fortunately, I noticed it lying in the parking lot and picked it up. I simply glued it back on myself instead of going through all the trouble to get the dealership to fix it."

Aaron G., NC (2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i 4.4-L V8 turbo)

Exhaust

Muffler, pipes, catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, leaks.

What Owners Say

Other/unsure

Anonymous, CA (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"Sensor didn't work in a new car. BMW replaced the sensor."

Anonymous, MD (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"Even at lowest sensitivity setting, over-compensates and at high speeds can cause an accident fighting the aggressive pull of the steering wheel."

Anonymous, MD (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"This system would get an error, turn off and reset itself."

Anonymous, NC (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

Climate System

Blower (fan) motor, A/C compressor, condenser, evaporator, heater system, automatic climate control, refrigerant leakage, electrical failure.

Anonymous, (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)

"Does not unlock or lock reliably based on touching the sensor in the door handle. Some door handles better than others. Dealer says it may be the fob is not working correctly and they've seen a lot of that... randomly get warning in car that the fob is not working properly as well. But not sure if it's the fob or the actual doors/locks not working."

Anonymous, MN (2019 BMW X5 xDrive40i 3.0-L 6 Cyl turbo)
Glass defects

"4 broken windshields since I bought the car just over a year ago. All caused my very small pebbles. I've driven these same roads for decades in other cars with similar hits and have never had a broken windshield. HORRIBLE quality of current BMW windshields."
