Great Car Limted By Electrical Quirks
By mickt2 on
1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan
Mechanically, the only thing I've had to do is replace the brakes once. Electrically, it's been a nuisance. In the past 2 years it's been in the shop for ignition failure, windshield wiper motor replacement (twice), window regulator failure, electronic trunk release failure, failure of sunroof, loss of sound to half the speakers. The heated seats keep blowing a fuse,and it can't be repaired without replacing both front seats. Each shop visit has run in the several hundred dollar range, and BMW dealers seem to think its nothing for you to wait 2 weeks for an appointment and then leave your car there for 2-3 days.
Favorite Features
Near perfect drive/comfort factor. Gorgeous inside and out.
Suggested Improvements
Electrical gremlins. Base stereo sound quality is poor for a vehicle of this caliber. 2.8L is a little underpowered. I won't even mention the cupholders.
