Mein Auto: 2008 X5
2008 x5 3.0 si

Hi all, looking for some information...

Currently have a 2004 X3 3.0 6 spd manual. Looking to buy a 2008 X5 3.0 SI with 68K miles. Car is in excellent shape inside & out. Just looking to see if you can offer any other things to be looked at or chronic issues I should be aware of. The car has been inspected by an Indy (currently performs work on my X3) and it passes his inspection.

Would love a newer odel but with 3 kids in college...

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Does the X5 with 68k have a warranty? I bought one without it and honestly I'm a bit nervous because it doesn't have it. I guess I figured that we pay a John Deere mechanic enough so maybe the X5 won't be that bad in comparison, yet I plan on going for a diesel with a warranty in the near future anyhow! Can you pull the service records on the vehicle?

Check to see if the transmission was reprogrammed for that known issue of jerking from standstill.

Although if the car doesn't jerk from standstill, then you don't need the reprogram.
