    According to Consumer Reports, no. A Harley is the 2nd worst. BMW is the worst.

    Here is an article from "The Motley Fool" website ...

    These findings are similar to JD Power's 2012 findings that BMW owners had the lowest level of customer satisfaction ... again.

    Shuben, I noticed that the X5 disappeared from your posts. Did you get rid of it?

    Haha ..... Viva Las Vegas

    But:
    still want to say that I really liked to ride the X5, sufficient power for most situations, light weight, vivid and stable curving behavior.
    I had great times with it.
