Great car but unexpected problems
By Fouad on


2004 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Bought brand new in 2004 and I still use it now. At first fule smell inside and dealer couldn't fix the problem till now also annoying sound from the roof like plates hitting 1. After 2 years I had to replace my suspension system for a cost of $2,200 (done by dealer) but I had to change all rft tyres because of that on my account for aboutt $2,400 2. After 3 years gearbox had to be replaced for a cost of around $7,000 (done by dealer) 3. After 4 years again I had suspension sys problem 4. Ac not cooling and compressor should be replaced for a cost of around $2,200 5. Oil level is always low according to computer screen but oil level is ok 6. Left front passenger window doesn't close any more

Favorite Features

nice sporty exterior looking and real fun to drive, handling, accelerating, breaking, it's enjoyable when you don't face fixing and replacing parts

Suggested Improvements

1. RFT tyres are very bad idea each time u need to change a tire it costs around $600 2. give it more useful space in the interior i didn't find any space for my mobile, pen, papers, and the side console is really tight 3. bmw should make a car to last for at least 10 years without problems !!
