My last BMW
By Shelly on
2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This is the family's 5th BMW in 10yrs. I gave up a low miles 01 330i sport to upgrade. There was a reason why someone traded it in with only 35k miles on it. It shakes and shudders while idling, the Traction control goes berserk around corners, no pick up, drives like my grandmas Volvo S80 which was a fraction of the cost. The BMW svc ctr says it's a flaw in the engine that makes it shudder, BMWNA says no such flaw and now the svc ctr is angry that I called BMWNA and I can't get a diagnosis. This is insane for a car that initially sold for $45k with the prem & cold weather pkg. Never again. If I want a volvo sedan- I'll buy one.
The interior is very comfortable -like a sedan- not the ultimate driving machine which my 2001 BMW 330i Sport was.
Ditch the safe body style, safe features and go back to the Ultimate driving machine that we all expect in a BMW.
