1998 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan


Review

This is one rock-solid car that
delivers phenomenal gas mileage. At
first we thought the digital readout
was incorrect, but have learned to
trust it after fill to fill checks.
With the cruise set at 140-160 kph (86
to 99 mph) and a good radar detector we
have consistently achieved 30+ miles
per gallon on the highway and 23 mpg in
the city.


Best Features

A passing gear that kicks out at 100 (160 KPH) mph. Kicking sports cars enthusiasts butts in a 4-door sedan and feeling SAFER than a truck.


Worst Features

Cup holders suc. Brake dust is annoying but worth the stopping power.

Review

I can't believe how incredible this car
is. Even though it is a used CPO, this
car continues to amaze me with it
features. Power, smoothness, quietness,
are just a few words that epitomize this
car. I don't think I can ever go back
to a plain car again.


Best Features

5 sp, and the power features, memory seats and a great stereo system.


Worst Features

should have make a in dash cd standard a long time ago. I can't get one now, except from the dealer and they cost $600.

Review

I have been driving BMW's off & on for
20 yrs. Started with 3's, movedup to
5's. Driven Saabs, Infinitis and
Mercedes in between. No other
production sedan handles like a BMW.
Quiet, catlike on turns and NOTHING
brakes like a BMW. Great sight lines
too.


Best Features

Brake response and cornering.


Worst Features

Cup holders

is factory installed radar detector.

Review

Went into the dealership looking for an
SUV, GMC Envoy( car of the year, ye
right). Spend hours haggling, till we
stumbled on this beemer on the lot, and
in an hour I was out of there. I have
lived happily ever after. There is
something about this car. I just feel
the respect everybody has for it, and I
respect it too.It is like they are
saying, take care of it, we are
watching you , we love to watch that
car. Of course evedrybody talks about
their sister or brother-in-law who has
one, I get to say I have one.


Best Features

The sports shift, Oh boy. No need to fuss with fools at an intersection or on ramp, you can always pass them before they reach 60mph if you want to.


Worst Features

Somehow it has a terrible blind spot, The cheap cup holders gotta go, I have replaced mine twice they break in the same spot too. MP3 player babe
