it was pretty big, it was very nice, and comfortable, decently fast for a big old suv, and the gear shifter was pretty cool, i reset the gas mileage when i first got it as i too wanted to see what i would get, i drove about 50 miles on it, i was averaging 18.2 mpg on pretty much 60% highway and 40% normal roads, this number surpassed what i thought it was gonna get.

By new do you mean the E70 X5? If that's the case then I have an X5 2007 4.8i. I love it to death.

As for the gas mileage, that's another story. On the highway, during a Montreal-Myrtle Beach run I averaged 22mpg. For regular daily driving in the city I average about 15mpg and during our long winter it drops to 12mpg. A Honda Civic it ain't.

But the overall pleasure I have with it compensates for its thirst of fossil fuel.

Cheers.
