It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
Worst roadholding ever
by RSA from Lake County IL
November 29, 2018
My worst car choice in 30 years. Traction control is a joke. I kept my son's 2008 Trailblazer so I'd have something surefooted and quiet to drive in winter. No AM radio. Rear tailgate won't close from key fob. Skids all over when it snows. No remote start. Gas mileage is poor. Leaks onto my feet when it rains. BMW roadside assistance did NOT answer the phone when I needed help. A total disaster with nothing to recommend it. Huge waste of money.
We loved our salesman, Anthony. After striking a deal, the business office set up all paperwork quickly and had us on our way in no time. Not your typical dealer. Highly recommend them.
BMW X5 - always improving toward perfection

I just purchased my 5th X5 since 2004, this, new and updated version of the BMW X5 is sleeker, faster, hugs the road and is wonderfully comfortable. Gas mileage has improved to 20mph - really a superb vehicle all around.
From my first phone call to the dealership days before buying the car, till now a week later, Sara Griffith has been nothing but helpful and proactive, focusing on what I wanted in a new car. She asked good questions and listen to answers and found the car that was right for me. I never felt like she was trying to fill a quota or upsell me on anything. She has stayed in touch, to make sure I understand how to work my Mini and that everything is functioning properly. I wish Sara were in real estate, because now I need to buy a house!
DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE!!

BMW has simply not figured out the hybrid technology. I currently own 2 BMW’s and have owned 4 or 5 over the years and this is the only one I’ve ever had any trouble with. Over 8 months of ownership it was in the shop more than my garage. I literally put more miles on their loaner cars and rental cars than my own vehicle. Far too many issue to detail out here but be extremely cautious with any hybrid purchase.
always treated like a VIP when I bring my car in for service. They always provide a loaner car when needed. Thank you to the service department!
The eDrive version is awesome

40e doesn't cost that much more than the 6 cylinder and I am averaging 45mpg. Nice federal tax rebate and I get 800 miles on a tank of gas. Plus parking spots reserved for charging are generally primo and available. This car is the same 0-60 as the 6cyl, but smoother and quicker off the line. I just use a standard outlet in my garage, so a full charge takes 7 hours over night. Public charging spots are 3 times as fast. I take the car on road trips without charging and it operates like a normal X5. No downside to getting the hybrid that I can tell.
My daughter had been looking for a car for about a month now and had been having a difficult time finding exactly what she wanted. During this time, we met Ryan three to four weeks ago as she was interested in purchasing a Mini. When we first met Ryan she wasn???t 100% sure she wanted a Mini. He was very patient and took the time to educate us about the Mini???s and also spent time trying to find us one. Yesterday, we went to another dealership and had such a horrible experience that words cannot describe. So today when we returned to Ferman Mini it was so refreshing to have a sales person who was relaxed but also very forthcoming with everything from numbers to the condition of the car we were interested in. Saying that Ryan is an amazing person as a whole is an understatement. He truly cares about his customers and is willing to take the time to make sure they are happy. Needless to say my daughter bought the car at a very fair price! Thank you so much Ryan! Dan in finance was also very easy to work with and the manager Doug was wonderful as well. Great dealership who I will recommend to all my friends!
Fun car to drive. Comfortable for long distances.
by Beach Haven from Eastern Massachusetts

I commute through Boston round trip to New Hampshire and this car has helped keep me safe and comfortable with some of the most daredevil drivers on the road. The visibility is excellent and the emergency braking has saved me when abrupt lane changers dive in front of a line of cars going 70 in the tunnel. The car is fun, with a lot of gimmicks and convenience features. It takes a while to learn how to use all these, but that keeps things interesting. Local driving is cost-free with the E-drive too.
I traded a 2000 corvette in on my new 2008 corvette. I smelled gas when I left the dealership but figured it was a overfill kind of issue. Did not go away so after having the car checked on a lift we found the fuel tank had been leaking for awhile. That should have been obvious during the inspection process. I knew the car had a scratch on the drivers rear fender but found much more damage down low on rear quarter panel when we had it on the lift. Fuel issue is around $2000, and body damage was quoted at $1500. To $2000. To repair. I am not a happy customer. Jeffers

The BMW X5 (hybrid version) meets all needs of a luxury SUV. Smooth drive, technical features - makes it very safe, reliable and comfortable. Highly recommended.
