Lack of cargo room for its size. When the third row is down, the arm rests jut out like sore thumbs robbing of floor cargo room. I am blown away by the cargo room of the Tahoe/Yukon even with the third row up. I have had a 2015 Tahoe and a 2020 navigator. I miss the overall room of a true truck based full size suv.What do you not like about the x7? I live right next to the factory in SC and they look pretty nice to me.
I have the staggered tire run-flat set. Can’t rotate them. They last from 10-15k miles. In theory means I have to change them every oil change… annoying. There’s only 2 models that exist in my size, both of which are hard to get. Pretty much have to use a dealer to get them instead of 3rd party like discount tires. They produce tons of road noise. They are also screw magnets. I’m glad I bought a tire and wheel plan as it has paid for itself. Runflats are great though. Wish they made them for all vehicles.
I had a horrendous experience with the BMW service down here with a bad alignment, which wore my tires to the metal very quickly.
I may be wrong but I feel like the paint isn’t the most durable. And this car depreciates more rapidly than any other vehicle I have owned.
There’s some things I love. The drive and handling for its size is outstanding, but the new gen Tahoes aren’t that far behind. Yes nothing will beat the 0 to 60 of the twin turbo v8 but the 6.2 is very nice. I had a Tahoe LT with the 5.3 as a rental and fell in love. The quality of the x7 interior is really good, especially with the leather dash BUT the material isn’t the most durable. So if you are carrying things don’t let them hit your dash.
The Yukon Denali I reserved has everything that my x7 had but for $20k less. The only real options I lose is massage seats (who cares) and ambient lighting (nice but it’s a car not a night club).
