Question on the X5 5.0

Question on the X5 5.0
So, on a recent trip to Durban I had a pleasure of driving my father in laws 2010 X5 5.0 sport pack.

Awesome SUV fell in love with it, so out of curiosity I had a look at the prices of these cars and to my surprise you can pick up one with just over 100 000 kms for around R270K

Is there any reason why they are that cheap?

The 5.0i is probably the worst seller of the X5 range, thats why. Great car, just the issue of it been a petrol.

RE: Question on the X5 5.0
I would reckon the main reason would be the fact that everyone is scared of the consumption. I also drove one a while ago and I honestly couldn't believe how well the thing ran for such a massive car.

RE: Question on the X5 5.0
Yep it's the consumption issue. The 30d, 40d and 50d have no competition when it comes to performance vs consumption.

On another note, there are later models available and the older ones normally drop in value as more models of the range hit the market.

I had the X5M - its based on the similar engine. the consumption is much better than the equivalent Range Rover. I actually got the same range as I did on my Diesel Discovery.

Dont be fooled - the maintenance on them is no joke. They consume lots of oil, the injectors have issues that could set you back close to 100k. The breather pipes in the engine bay become brittle and need replacing - the pipes are cheap but the labour is more of an issue.

My experience was based on the X5M, the dealer mentioned that the 50i had more issues and they regularly saw them come in on role backs.

Question on the X5 5.0
Any vehicle that was super expensive new will be be super expensive to maintain as a used out of warranty/motorplan vehicle.

So you will get amazing performance and poor fuel consumption, but don’t put aside maintenance cost. As mentioned above, this is a high performance engine and don’t be fooled with what it will cost you to run this car.

Large SUVs take the biggest knock when it comes to depreciation, the petrol models more so than diesel.

So go for it if you can maintain the car.

RE: Question on the X5 5.0
Nothing specific to X5,

Same thing on other SUVs ....look at Petrol Jeep prices vs Diesel,
2010/2011 Range Rover big body sells for R299k 5.0i
Replacement is near R2m.

Petrol SUVs depreciate much faster and do not hold value like their diesel counterparts.

Maintenance issues already covered in previous posts but the SA fuel price saga makes it worse for ownership!

As a daily
At over R17 a liter with 16l-20l/100km car. You are toast! Might as well Just burn the cash

As an odd occasion car (long trips)
If you have another vehicle and this will be for odd long trips - you will get a lot of car for less.

RE: Question on the X5 5.0
Another factor to consider, if you buying a petrol over diesel is the price difference of the vehicle.. For example say you choosing between a X5 40d and the X5 50i, which is about R50k more expensive, you first need to recover R50k in fuel before the diesel even breaks even to the petrol and that will be may 1000s of kms. . Thats not even taking into account the additional interest on the finance of that additional R50k. If you not using it everyday, the petrol many not be such a bad idea. Thumbs
