Not too impressed!!!

1999 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


First off, I will say this car has a
nice exterior. The parts are of good
quality but the maintenance on this
car is a joke. I've owned several
high end cars over the years to
includes a Mercedes, a Jaguar, two
Volvo's, and a Lexus. The BMW has
been the worst for maintenance! This
car needs more get up and go too for
the price. Not impressed at all!!!
The best cars I've owned have been the
Volvo's. My wife has a 1999 Volvo S80
T6. Wow, that car is a rocket!
Virtually trouble free and super low
cost on maintenance.... not to
mention, the most comfortable seats of
any car we've owned. A much better
choice than this BMW. I'm going back
to Volvo!

Worst Features

The cupholders are horrible - spill drinks all the time and now have so many stains on the carpets, no to mention on my clothes! Needs much more power. BMW should use a twin- turbo like Volvo on the S80 T6. The Volvo's are much better cars as I now know.
