2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This is my first BMW. I find it a good handling car, but with POOR RELIABILITY. I will sell it at 65,000 miles. The straw that broke the camel back is the need for a new transmission, after a new radiator,etc. I am just 15,000 mi over the warranty limit, and I see nothing but expenses ahead. So GOOD BY BMW for me.

Favorite Features

Good Handling

Suggested Improvements

Need more reliable com[ponents.

I had the same issue. I was rear-ended in November. Just after receiving my car back from the shop...my radiator started to leak. Had them check it out only to find that it had corrosion to the point that there was a hole in it. A sizable one at that. Just after buying it the front rotors went bad. Now, my transmission is shifting a bit hard. So far the dealership has told me it's my driving style....right.
