Regardless of personal opinions - this is pretty awful . The results were about the same for the 2013 5 series.
This should be a better made car -period. This is a pretty terrible report card..

Reliability Rating for 2013 BMW X5 SUV by Identifix
JD Power is one garbage step up from Consumer Reports, Most of their studies are the initial 90 day period where people complain about fit and finish, I only care about the mechanical issues , Edmunds is garbage also, more entertainment IMO than information. The only worthwhile service that JD Power provides is the dollar bill that shows up with the survey.
