I have exact same car and I visit dealer once a month. Next week will be the passenger side airbag shock deflating while left at airport for 4 days. Last month was power tailgate motor failure. December was fuel pump failure (that sucked! required a tow). November was an oil leak that they said was some sort of vacuum. I don't know if I will keep it past CPO expiration in October but I will say it is by FAR the most fun car to drive I have ever owned. It's a monster.

I've had a a bad sun roof cartridge, bad fan sensor and a steering angle sensor go out in 1.5 years . all covered by extended after market warranty. I wouldn't own this without an extended. The sunroof repair alone was more than the warranty. I wouldn't call my suv problematic by any stretch but when something does go wrong it aint cheap.

Extended warranty

Where do you get a good aftermarket warranty for the X5?

they offered it at the dealer I bought at. I cant remember the name of my current provider. its on file at BMW service and they deal directly with them when I have a claim. I had one through Zurich on my previous touraeg and it was solid as well.

Don't do it, unless you have a back up car for when the X5 is in the shop and LOTS of money for repairs. Oh, and be sure to put paper on the garage floor for the oil leaks.
