528's Are BAD NEWS
By felgar on


1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


I bought this car as a lease return
with an after market warranty. It has
constantly been in the shop. The last
major problem was a blown head gasket
and warped head - BMW took no
ownerhship in the problem and cost me
$5K. These are very unreliable cars
and I will never purchase a BMW again.
Great looks but Big Money Wasted

Worst Features

BMW is lucky the cars are good looking...that is the draw... lack of reliability is the turn off.
