1992 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Wagon


The car handles curves and cruising on the highway like no other car I have ever owned, but on acceleration the car lacks any real power. It is the slowest BMW I have ever driven. You might be 0 to 60 in half a minute. The car eats cash. Minor repairs are still in the hundreds of dollars. The smallest of plastic parts are expensive and when you include labor at ANY BMW dealer, you can count on even a dashboard light replacement costing you about $200. I have owned this car for 2 years and have spent nearly $4000 in repairs and upkeep. In addition, I have had three dead stops and had to be towed to the dealer.

Best Features

Extreme comfort inside with onboard computer. Handles great once you get cruising on the highway.

Worst Features

Very expensive to upkeep. Most parts can only be obtained at a dealer. Repairs can cost more than the car is worth for even small stuff! Gas mileage needs improvement as it gets only 19 mpg for normal driving.
