Warranty

The X5 comes with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and five-year/50,000-mile free maintenance program.

While the 2007 X5 has a number of brand-new and untested systems that could impact reliability over the long haul, Newsday predicts that owning an X5 "will be a relatively pleasant experience." AutoMedia.com calls the X5 "exceptionally solid and well-built," but there have been problems with earlier X5 models.
