X5 vs. MDX 2001 model year recalls:

You can look up the safety recalls that have occurred for both vehicles (model year 2001) listed at the NHTSA web site ( ). Whilst the MDX has had no safety recalls, the list of safety recalls for the X5 is so long that the web page reads, "Due to the large number of records returned from the Recalls database, we did not display Defect Summary, Consequence Summary and Corrective Summary description."

In 1989 I purchased a new 735 iL which I owned for 5 years. I had more problems with that car than with all the other vehicles that I have ever owned over the years combined - and I've owned Ford. So I'm not at all surprised by the long list of recalls for the X5; reminds me of the cliche "the more things change the more they say the same".

X Reliability

Yeah, interesting reading all of the bimmer comments. Owned one while in undergraduate studies back in '76, a pre-owned '74 2002. Finely honed machine. Hardly had an opportunity to drive it since it was in the shop with various suspension and oil leak problems. Never owned one again. Having said that, I have driven other bimmers since then and admittedly they handle and drive well.....but y'know, despite what the auto mags say, the rest of the world is catching up: my X handles (imhop), pretty darn well and from a seat of the pants POV, like a '98 5 series!
