2012 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Lets just say that I've had the car for 3 weeks and am already looking for another car.
I've had 3 BMWs before this one, and none of them were this soul draining and boring.
It lacks power, and handles more like a Cadillac than a BMW.
The steering it far too soft as well.
The X1 that I drove when it was in for a recall was more engaging and exciting to drive.
I actually was hoping that the dealer would wreck it or that it would catch on fire to keep me from having to deal with a trade in.
The car is almost as boring as my 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid.
The gas mileage is good, and it's a quiet ride.
Go back to BMW roots... "Driving Excitement".
The car is so uninspiring to drive that I hate myself for spending so much money on it.
If I wanted Mercedes handling, I would have bought one.
Less depreciation would be nice.
The sticker was ~63K (loaded).
The BMW dealership appraises it at 43K trade in now.
$20K depreciation already!?!?
