First...maybe last. Great to drive. Post-warranty fears...

2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
I bought my 525i as a CPO with ~32,000 miles on it. By the second day I had an appointment to get the rotors replaced as they were warped. November '10 I had to have the radiator replaced as it developed a sizable whole. The transmission engages rather hard from near-stop or even a full stop at times. It occasionally shifts hard at speed. The dealership swears this is my driving style. I find it commical that I did not have this problem with a '99 Ford Escort, '98 Suzuki Sidekick, '98 Toyota Tacoma, '04 Mazda Protege5, or an '05 Chevy Silverado....but I do with the expensive BMW. The car is fun to drive, the stearing and handling are great.
Favorite Features
Interior details. Handling.
Suggested Improvements
Better storage & cup holders. Better iDrive (already in place now). Less chip-happy paint. Better build quality.
