Buy a different car!
By Diane K-C on


1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


I thought that a BMW was the way to go
after running my Honda Accord into the
ground at 235,000 miles. The total
amount of money that I had spent on
repairs that I had done on the Accord
were just about what I have spent on
repairs in just one month on this car!
It is ridiculous...I am in the shop
literally every other month and there
are still things that I need to get
done to it. I was impressed by
the "name" and safety record of these
cars, but am now just figuring out how
to get rid of it!

Best Features

Leather heated seats and steering wheel

Worst Features

The can holder in the back seat is plastic and I have replaced it 3 times in 3 years...and it's not cheap!
