Sensor Headache
By Tfjng on


2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


I had owned this car for about 3 years now and it has been giving headaches with sensor lights coming on like Christmas all year round. The most common lights/failure is the odometer where ASC, ABS, Engine check lights all comes on at once. When this happens, the dealer charges an arm and a leg to have them fixed. Most time it is the stupid ASC Module that failed which is an expensive equipment to replace. BMW dealership's repair are a repair. Bunch of rip offs. They charge you by just talking to you. $140 for a scan check, then a few thousands for repairs. Don't buy these cars if you can't handle stress.

Best Features

Looks good when sitting in my drive way.

Worst Features

Stop charging so much for parts and repairs, build parts that don't break so easily.
