My first, and last
By TomnMemphs on


1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


Purchased this car CPO with 53K miles
on it. Yeah, it's a BMW, but that
doesn't impress me much anymore. It
drives great, but that's it's only
decent feature. In the last month, I
have spent nearly $1,000 on various
maintenance....brakes (just for the
front - $500)and the dreaded Inspection
II ( a glorified tune-up, and another
$500). I've owned both domestic,
japanese, and other European autos and
trucks. This car is NOT worth the cost
( both for the car, and the total
maintenance costs). If you live in
Memphis, you're forced to buy from a
single dealer. I suggest you buy
something else.

Best Features

6 disk CD changer, sporty ride

Worst Features

cupholders..... not tiny flipouts intended to hold a drink
