In market for a 2015 BMW X5, any advice?
Also I found mixed sources about maintenance cost for X5. I don’t know how much I should expect for regular maintenance service. I’m planning to diy oil change, brake job and some other minor stuff.
I estimated $1000 a year for maintenance cost for the next 5 years and assume resell value is going to be at $15,000 after 5 years, which gives me roughly $700/month cost of ownership for 5 years.
Surprisingly there’s almost none CPO for this 4 yo suv. Is it because there’s some well known issue with this model?
A few BMW dealers I contacted (for listings at low $40k tag) said there’s no room for price negotiation, which’s h I found very surprising. I haven’t been in the market for a long time I thought used car normally has about 20% markup?
I’m going to test drive two X5 from two different dealers this weekend, is there anything I should look out for?
They are all BMW dealers claiming they did inspection already, so is PPI still necessary? Given that these two still have a few months balance of warranty left on them.
If they can print out the service log, maybe I can ask for some service done like oil change or brake service if they are firm on the price?
