My wife hates it???
By L. Lindahl on


1998 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


This is the finest car I have ever
owned. Recently we moved to NC where
almost everyone drives a truck, so of
course I talked my wife into trading
in her 94 Volvo 850 turbo wagon in on
a new Tundra which I now drive,
giving her the privledge of driving
the BMW. She hates it??? She claims
the most comfortable seats in the
world are hurting her legs, and the
dash controls are too complicated. I
keep offering to let her have the
truck, but she doesn't want to drive
something that big everyday. We will
soon be trading in this beautiful
classic for a new Cross Country,
breaking my 18 year streak of owning
BMW's. It's too bad the truck is so

Best Features

I have never owned a car that puts the driver in such a perfect position between the seat and the steering wheel for enjoying the incredible handling this car puts forth.

Worst Features

The cup holders should have been recalled long ago. They really are a driving hazzard if you make the mistake of using them.
