Keep the dealer on speed dial.

1992 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Wagon


The car handles curves and cruising on
the highway like no other car I have
ever owned, but on acceleration the
car lacks any real power. It is the
slowest BMW I have ever driven. You
might be 0 to 60 in half a minute.
The car eats cash. Minor repairs are
still in the hundreds of dollars. The
smallest of plastic parts are
expensive and when you include labor
at ANY BMW dealer, you can count on
even a dashboard light replacement
costing you about $200.
I have owned this car for 2 years and
have spent nearly $4000 in repairs and
upkeep. In addition, I have had three
dead stops and had to be towed to the

Best Features

Extreme comfort inside with onboard computer. Handles great once you get cruising on the highway.

Worst Features

Very expensive to upkeep. Most parts can only be obtained at a dealer. Repairs can cost more than the car is worth for even small stuff! Gas mileage needs improvement as it gets only 19 mpg for normal driving.
