This is the ultimate driving machine?

2001 BMW 5 Series Sedan 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This car drives well but suffers in the reliability category. Something seems to go wrong every month. Numerous attempts to fix the same problem seem to have failed. Build quality is poor relative to price. Of course, when the car isnít in the shop it does drive like a BMW should.

BMW 525

Review

I have found the 525 to be a great value in the luxury car class. It does lack some performance, but as a daily driver it is hard to beat.

a fun manual tranny for the soccer moms and dads. Has been an incredible road- trip car (philly to Wyoming/AZ/TN and back. Great seat comfort and solid passing power even fully loaded. 21+ MPG (premium fuel)

A Corvette for the family

2001 BMW 5 Series Sedan 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

It is way better in the snow than most front wheel drives. It handles and rides like a luxury car but when challenged can perform like a sports car. The best car I ever owned.

Review

This car provides the most satisfying driving experience u can get from family car with four doors. Sufficiently fast, excellent build quality (except for a few minor glitches), superb handling and performance. This car is just great. Get a feeling of euphoria when driving it, so much that I find myself looking for excuses to drive it. Pure confidence. Engine has nice muted growl, gets ur adrenaline pumping. Acceleratoin is great, even with auto. Can't believe there is only 2.5 liters under there, feels more like 3.5. Styling is timeless. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE.

Vehicle

2001 BMW 5 Series Sedan 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Way over priced. Tiny trunk; does not handle well in snow or on wet road surfaces; non-existent cup holders (break at least once a year); limited interior storage. Difficult for a six footer to enter and exit (steering wheel feature not really helpful); leg romm is very narrow for driver; no compass.

How not to design a navigation system

2001 BMW 5 Series Sedan 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

If another car (Lexus) in the class offered manual transmission with almost 300 horses then this would be the wrong choice. Lots of little things keep going wrong with the car. Sometimes the service engine soon light with turn-on and gone after 15-20 miles. The electronic key will stop working. But once it starts to move, this is awsome. I live with the minor annoyances since I really want a manual transmission in my car.
