Is BMW X5 E70 Diesel still the ultimate SUV 9 yrs later?

9 Years later, can BMW X5 E70 Diesel be the ultimate long trip/off road SUV? I thinks so! Here is the list of things that went wrong with the X5 Diesel in my 4 years of ownership:
BMW X5 E70 Diesel Reliability:
DPF Active tank sensor - entire tank replaced under BMW extended warranty free
Idler pulley bolt - recall covered by BMW free
Throttle body valve actuator - DIY replaced myself , part roughly $150-$220
BMW X5 E70 Diesel Maintenance Cost
Engine oil - $100 DIY
Air Filter - cleanable K&N AF $65
DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) roughly every 10k mi - $13
EGR Valve cleaning - $8

  • Best SUV, not only for its age but overall. The design lines are out of this world compared to todays cars. Its smooth. I have a 2014 X5 M-sport, owned for a year now and your comment about taking corners. I dont know if its the 315 rear tires plus m-sport suspension but I take corners like any E92 that ive owned previous to this X5.

    • .... And, there's just something magical about diesels. The idle sound, the smell, yes. Love it, like I love smell of gunpowder. Rolling coal. Once you've gone black you never go back. Carbon footprint? Nah. Carbon elephant tracks!

    • @BIMMER LEAGUE Why not? More than double fuel consumption. I've actually had X5. Feels way more sluggish 95% of the time- ie real world driving. Granted when the 2 big hairdryers kick in X5M obviously IS faster, but you really have to run the numbers up the tach. The diesel has real world effortless power, even with race tune. X5M drops 2 gears to go up hills the diesel loafs.

    • @BIMMER LEAGUE I do have 2011 bmw e70 diesel with sports package and only have 62k miles. Iv checked with bimmer forum some of them highly not recommended because we have allot of extra stuff egr,def tween turbo, motor oil long life-04 etc. P.S. I really like my x5 and will keeping for a long time 🙂

  • I own a E92 335is looking at getting a more daily car. espicially for winter. Plan to put a tune on it to lmao. But man they are so rare to find with the sport pack (I cannot handle a headliner that isn't black).

  • Congratulations on the wonderful review, I gladly watched it all. I find myself having to change cars and for need I will focus on an SUV, I like the BMW x5 as much, too much like yours, I even prefer it to the series after 2014. The problem with these cars is that here in Italy they are found few, those few cost a lot and I am not sure that the kilometers are certified, what would you do would you recommend this car the 30 / 35d with 130.000 kilometers or even more? Price of around 13.500 / 16.000 euros.

    • I drive a 2014 X5 30d with 120k on it, no worries here. Just make sure your service and repairs are recorded. Mine have only been serviced and repairs at BMW.

    • They are great cars with amazing fuel consumption numbers, but honestly I would not recommend getting ANY BMW with such high odometer readings. All of them will start giving you problems after 100k miles. I would go for 40-60mi but no more 👍

  • Hey, what year is your E70? Because i have noticed you have bluethooth audio connection or iam wrong? Is it manufactury option or you did some upgrades?

    GypsyoneGypsyone6 сарын өмнө
    • @Gypsyone with cic system (facelift 2011 and up) you can download update (little software) from dealer website and upgrade your x5 for bluetooth !!!!

  • We hit 7 years with ours and the Engine ECU went out costing $3.5K and a few weeks later the Active DEF tank is throwing up errors, that is going to be another $3.5K I've seen a lot of others with these issues. I'd say get rid of the X5 diesel after 6 years. But during that time it was perfect.

    • @Live to Inspire True, they smog every two year here.. the ECU went out 2 months ago, so that was $4K , this was covered by a 120K warranty on that part. I'm hoping to keep it for 2 more years, crossing finger those were the major things that could go wrong. Though I have heard the transmissions were another week point at least on the gas versions, not sure if they share the same transmission

    • @Live to Inspire true that might as well invest and get rid of all that junk but I heard one might have hard time passing emissions after that 😲
