2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


This car offers good balance between comfort and fun sporty ride. Bit stiff for this class, unless you're driving on the perfect highway, you feel every little bump on the road. Seats are very uncomfortable. After 3 years of ownership, I suffer major back problems. Sound insulation could be better. But the biggest and the worst problem with this car is reliability. I have never owned such unreliable vehicle. Something breaks every 1000-1500 miles. I purchased mine as Certified Pre-Owned and can't get out of repair shops. Most of repairs are covered by the warranty, but I am tired of going to the dealership every month.

Best Features

Brakes are exceptional! Very responsive steering.

Worst Features

Seats don't have lumbar support, which is unacceptable for this class. Material quality is also not good. Leather on the seats losing color. And quality, quality, quality!!
