2012 BMW 5 Series 528i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
The car drives & performs like it should except for two major faults: The start & stop is very rough & passengers quickly notice it.
To shut the vehicle off is a real bummer - Push the off button & the interior stays on - Push it again & cthe vehicle restarts
. Frustrating to say the least.
Fuel usage & cabin quietness.
Get rid of the malfunctioning stop button & somehow smooth out the engine stopping feature or provide a way to disable it permanently.
Buy an MKZ for $20K less & many more features & a V-8, sweet engine.
