2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought the car w/38k miles. In the 22k I've put on it, it's given me lots of smiles, and also had me cursing at it. It's a great performer and handler, but I've replaced a mass air sensor, camshaft sensor, CD changer and more. I'm not sure if I would get another one.


Best Features

Performance.


Worst Features

A car this expensive should be more reliable.

2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


Review

Like owning the 2000 BMW 528i. Performance is perfect with soft braking. Maintenance is higher than other cars (to be expected), but if you stay away from dealer and find other BMW specialty mechanic shops, your wallet will be happier.


Best Features

Brakes, and stereo.


Worst Features

Not to beat a dead horse, but the cupholders are a bit small.

2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


Review

This car offers good balance between comfort and fun sporty ride. Bit stiff for this class, unless you're driving on the perfect highway, you feel every little bump on the road. Seats are very uncomfortable. After 3 years of ownership, I suffer major back problems. Sound insulation could be better. But the biggest and the worst problem with this car is reliability. I have never owned such unreliable vehicle. Something breaks every 1000-1500 miles. I purchased mine as Certified Pre-Owned and can't get out of repair shops. Most of repairs are covered by the warranty, but I am tired of going to the dealership every month.


Best Features

Brakes are exceptional! Very responsive steering.


Worst Features

Seats don't have lumbar support, which is unacceptable for this class. Material quality is also not good. Leather on the seats losing color. And quality, quality, quality!!

2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had the car for over 56,000 miles and 106,000 miles overall. Recent engine oil analysis showed almost no wear. Gas mileage is averaging 24 MPG in mixed driving. Car has exceptional acceleration at any speed and even better braking. As much under control at 120 as at 40. Interior comfort could be better but control layout is totally logical. Some wear on seat plastic trim. Maintenance is easy but not cheap. Expensive but worth it.


Best Features

Acceleration. Braking. Handling. Fuel economy. Great sound system. Logical layout of controls.


Worst Features

Cost of maintenance. Wear of minor time. Seats could be more comfortable.

I'd buy one again

Review

I am the original owner, ordered it new. I love the performance, handling and the way it it can make a u-turn in such a small space. With the 42k that I have on it I have had to replace the radiator, and 2 of the sensors. The last time, BMW did not charge me because of the low miles on the car. That I appreciated. Living in NJ where there is a lot of traffic, pulling onto the Parkway is very easy with the power of this car. People are amazed at the speed and pickup that it has.It still does, after owning it for 6 yrs. This car came standard with everything one needs. I would buy another one.


Best Features

Looks, handling, and pick-up speed.The seats are very comfortable for me and my passengers agree.The sound system is excellent.


Worst Features

Cup holders. A compass would be nice. I don't need a navagation system.
