Think Twice Before Buying 540i
By disappointed2 on
1994 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan
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!!
Features, ergonimics, performance, style
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!!
