Consumer report - x5, 6 turbo

This month's Consumer Reports did not recommend the X5 - 6, with turbos. Did not say who have year, etc.

Any ideas why?

Probably has to do with the problems the N54 had with the fuel pump and wastegates on the turbos which were a big problem on the 335i. It seems the problem with the fuel pump had been somewhat corrected and the turbos/wastegates got an extension of their warranties.
Also, to point out the obvious, the X5 never had the N54 so the 6 was the N52 with the 6 speed to '11 when it switched to the N55 with the 8 speed.
My bad!
