Great Car but Can't Wait to Sell It
By JonesDM on


1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


Great highway cruiser, quiet, firm,
comfortable - feels like its part of
the highway. Fun to drive and looks
great- an almost perfectly executed
car, but has needed over $12,000 in
repairs since new.

Best Features

Handling, design, everything clicks and moves so smoothly. Lots of check engine lights to keep you entertained - learning all the mechanic's by first name.

Worst Features

I bought it knowing that the reliability was poor. I thought that since I only drive 6,000 miles a year that it would be okay. WRONG! By far the most unreliable and expensive car to maintain that I have ever had. I want my Camry back. Were the cupholders rejects from Yugo?
