Keep the dealer on speed dial.
By JosephJ on
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
Extreme comfort inside with onboard
computer. Handles great once you get
cruising on the highway.
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.
