1992 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

this BMW is a solid ride. i bought it with 114000 miles for 4000 dollars. it was the steal of the century. the engine is smooth as butter with effortless acceleration in the top end(it could use some more low end power) it gets great fuel economy for a 6cyl, 20 city 28-30 at 65 mph on highway. the seats are incredible and hold their age magnificently. the trunk is huge and the same for the sunroof.the computer is nifty as well, i didnt think they had that stuff in 1992. i have had no problems at all with the car in 6000 miles of driving.

Review

Straight to the point: 1) Reliable car. Bought the car with 138K miles on it - not a single complaint during the first year. 2) The performance is awesome, just shift AT into S mode and you can outrun most of the cars. Handles corners like it's glued to the ground. Definitely a fun to drive. 3) The only competitors at this price lack style and/or performance. 4) Comfort is superb: climate control, noice isolation, power everything. The list is unlimited. 5) Fuel economy: I get 20 mpg in mixed conditions with agressive driving. 6) Interior design: everything is where it's supposed to be. 7) Exterior still turns heads. 8) Overall:has 50K$ car feel:)


Best Features

Comfortable, reliable, fast, rear wheel drive, quiet, 6cyl engine is great. Note: don't buy 535 - it only has about 20hp more but is way more pricey. If you need more HP - consider 1994 530 or 540. Those have 8cyl engines and "rated 10" performance.


Worst Features

None. Great car for the money. Not as firm as 3-series and not as bulky as 7-series, but has performance and luxury to match both. Definitely getting myself another 5-series. Probably will consider 540 next time. PS: oh, yes, you should see people's faces when they find out you drive a BMW ! :)

Review

This is my first BMW and I am hooked! I have owned Saabs, Sterlings and a Range Rover, but after driving and owning this car I can confidently say that I will have it for a long long time and my next car will be another BMW. I have owned the car for the last 16,000 and have had no serious issues, only a few minor problems like replacing sensors and some difficulty with the seat motors. My most expensive bill so far has been the 90,000 mile service, but other than that, all is quite well!


Best Features

Performance, handling, style and the responce one recieves when saying "I drive a BMW" (even if it is older).


Worst Features

Make the parts and service cheaper:)

Review

Got this car 2 years old out coming out of college, fella before me put 76K miles on it in the first two years so I got a great deal. In the next 2 years I put another 60K miles on it, never a hiccup. Gave it to my wife when we got married. Now with 2 kids and over 200K miles, the maintenance cycle has picked up beyond what I'm willing to commit (which is quite a bit). The engine/tranny is still solid. It's the belts, water pump, alternator, battery, leather seats are starting to rip, you get the point. Hate to call it quits but the time has come.


Best Features

stock sound system, comfort, strong engine, great handling (until my wife drives it, plenty of trunk space.


Worst Features

cup holder
