Review
I have had my 540 for almost 5 years now. I love the car, fun to drive, fast, reliable. Gas mileage is poor but it is a big V8 under the hood. Have only done routine mileage related repairs that any car would need, only at a much higher cost and we do all our own repairs. Hate to say it has been hit twice and is the only 10+ year old car I know of that was totally covered for a combined 10k of body repairs. My only re-occurring complaint is the need of new tires, alignments more often then most cars, I only put 20k on it in 5 years and I am on my 3rd set of tires. Oh and for winter driving, this car stinks, which is why my next auto, later this year, is the X5!! I do love my 540 though!
Favorite Features
Engine, exterior design, smooth ride, excellent handling at high speeds.(had up to 110 mph and didn't even know it!)
Suggested Improvements
Cup holders are the worst, I have the standard audio system which is terrible and back seat leg room is minimal. Repairs are costly even when your a mechanic.
