Think Twice Before Buying 540i
By disappointed2 on

Vehicle

1994 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan

Review

I've been through 3 engines ($6,000 per), two transmissions ($3,000 per), 3 driveshafts ($1,500 per), and 2 alarm modules ($800 per). That should speak for the car and the dealership experience is no better. They like to replace things instead of repairing things, parts are terribly expensive, and overall service is a joke. If you want a BWM, buy a new one or a slightly used one, especially not any 5-series. 3-series may be okay. Good luck with your Big Money Waste!!

Suggested Improvements

BMW would have a super car if they could employ the reliability of Toyota. I know some of it has to do with prestige and image of owning a Bimmer, but it's not worth it!!
