1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan

Review

This is the most dangerous car I've ever owned. In the two years I have owned it, the engine has blown, the electrical system has completely failed, and the car almost caught on fire. I bought it used with 42,000 miles on it and it now has 91,000 miles on it. BMW should be embarrassed. The only saving grace is that I have a 100,000 mile extended warranty. It has easily saved me $15,000 in repairs. I am about to trade it in for a Honda Accord.

Best Features

It's a beautiful looking car. It has a 100,000 mile warranty.

Worst Features

How about a little reliability??
