2016 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Driving my third 528 I series in the last 7 years , I really Speak from the heart and experiance.This car by far exceeds performance and looks and reliability, I would not even put it in class with the E350 and the Lexus G.S.All I'm telling you is Please drive all three cars .It really is the Ultimate Driving Machine . Good luck .

Review

Build quality was fine; but it is sluggish and slow and lacks the exciting driving feel you'd expect in a BMW. The Turbo 4 is inadequate and leaves it under powered and wanting. I've had that engine before and it starts to burn oil between changes at about 20,000 miles so be warned. The navigation system still requires a PHD and a lot of patience. It's not intuitive. Unfortunately, the car drives like a Buick. If I'd wanted a Buick I would have bought one for $20,000 less. Very disappointed. I've owned six BMW's and this is the worst. Believe the new redesign in '17 is intended to remedy some of it's faults.

2016 BMW 5 Series Sedan 550i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

This is my third 2012, 2014, and 2016 BMW 550 Xdrive. It ranks tops in more segments against other GS, the Audi A6, the MB E550. It had power to spare with all wheel drive system that manages all conditions well. Previous vehicle was a 2006 Mercedes E-55. I have two kids both on car seats which makes the rear a tight space.
