528i pre-owned sport

Vehicle2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan
ReviewQuality vehicle. My second BMW (both 5-
speed manuals). Saved me big time when
hit by red-light runner, so proven safety
record. V6 gets me up onto frwy very nicely
and out of 'jams' . Exceptional on long trips
and gas mileage around 32mpg hwy avg.
Only problems have been electronic, as on
my 1998 5-series; guess it's the Germans.
Also some seat rattles no one can fix. I'll
take manual trans over auto trans any day
(I'm middle aged female, too!). Now ISO a
pre-owned 2003, manual transmission.
Best FeaturesSafety, speed, comfort; moonroof, seat adjustments, sound system, looks (hate the new 5-series looks..), steering wheel stereo controls, and no unnecessary dashboard computer features are positives
Worst FeaturesYes, those cupholders--lose 'em. Dual air control-worthless in such a small space. Better quality electronics that don't glitch so often. Std foldown rear seat would be great (had one in my '98); better svc techs at dealership-they change more often than underwear.
