BMW X5 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW X5 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
I think my dealership lied
If they won’t come to the party and help you out you could go to the NSW consumer affairs people and ask for their advice. You could also contact the consumer affairs people in Queensland, as the dealer is based there, and would come under the Queensland law. I doubt that you will get far, however, as you signed the contract without properly checking it.
Good large SUV for towing?
For maximum space and tow rating you should definitely be going for the Touareg V6 TDI. It will do both your jobs with a 3500kg tow rating and 280kg ball weight.
