1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan
Review
97 is the first model year of the 528i (build starts 96). I think many 97 528 owners, many of the them have the same problems. The rear power window regulator breaks. Water pump would go at about 70k mi. power seat have problems, so is the airbag warning sensor. interior starts making noise after awhile. The alarm sensor for the trunk might have problem. BMW issued notice for dealer to fix a lot of these problems. Early model don't have manual shift mode. The brakes are really good but don't last long. The engine only makes 190hp, it runs slower than my old C280.
Favorite Features
nice optional leather. nice wood touch. long oil change period.
Suggested Improvements
Bigger trunk. better cup holder! Bigger standard wheel (w/o sport package, only 15 inch). 12 speaker sound system sucks.
