1997 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the car a little over six months ago with almost 107,000 on it and it now has 113,500 miles. The car is fun to drive, very reliable and very comfortable. A lot of power for a six cylinder and very smooth ride. I've had no problems with it whatsoever thus far.


Best Features

Interior is very comfortable and luxurious, great sound system, great power and ride with good gas mileage.


Worst Features

Cupholders are a joke. I had to buy aftermarket cupholders that are functional.

Review

This car was bought used which saved quite a bit of money. It is very quiet, comfortable and very easy to shift this 5-speed. It is very enjoyable to drive and has great acceleration and handling. The A/C and Heater work very quickly. The backseat leg room is good and trunk space is plenty. Maintenance - the thermostat has been replaced 3 times at no cost and the water pump was replaced after 5 years. The scheduled maintenance for BMW's is a bit pricey but they take care of so many items at one time to keep the car running well.


Best Features

Besides the driving, without a doubt, the seat heaters and the heated steering wheel is my favorite feature. It doesn't get very cold in Houston but when it does the heat is instant and comfortable. The heat is also useful for lower back pain and arthritis in hands.


Worst Features

The flimsy broken cup holders are a poor design.

Review

Best car I have ever owned! Not one problem in 60,000 miles. Gets 30 mpg on the highway and 25 to 27mpg just running around. The guality is superb and the car is worth every penny! It rides and drives just like it did when new. 80 mph feels like 55 mph. No wind noise and SOLID at high speeds.


Best Features

Just drive one and you will know! You will never go back to your old vehicle!


Worst Features

better am reception
