Vehicle

2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Fun car to drive, great performance, good fuel economy-but- way too many major mechanical problems. In three years there have been a major oil leak- had to carry a quart of oil with me to get it to the nearest dealer-battery failure, compressor failure and most recently high pressure fuel pump failure 400 miles from home. On several occasions BMW has been less than cooperative in addressing the warranty repair.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive, comfortable on long trips.

Suggested Improvements

Way too many mechanical issues for a car of this price. My confidence level in the mechanical reliability of this car is very low.
