Thumbs up

I'm thinking of buying a '01 x5 3.0 with 48k miles. It's a certified pre-owned with a warranty up to 100,000 miles. Does anyone have an x5 with really high mileage??? What problems/maint. can I expect after 100k miles? What's the life expectancy for this vehicle?

x5's are very reliable. Very few problems with them.

Id say thats not bad mileage at all, while its semi-high for an 01, its not rediculous, ive seen 03 vehicles with 25 - 30k and with the 100k warranty your covered for another 50 anyway.

A late model with high mileage is better than an early model with high mileage. If most of the driving is freeway, you're better off.

On both my X5s, I encountered these identical problems with a lot less mileage:
Rear tailgate pops open on its own. Factory is aware of common problem
All 4 door locks imoperable in winter: Factory is aware of common problem
Both front ends had to be rebuilt
Rotor and pads at low mileage
O2 sensor problem in 2001 X5.

Make sure you get a good warranty.
