2002 BMW 5 Series Sedan 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love the car (525i with M sports
package manual) when I actually get to
drive it and when it works. It spent
more time in the service dept than with
me (hence the low mileage). The svc.
dept. rep. knows me on a first name
basis. Took it twice for the air bag
light; once for a problem with the
driver's seat; 4 times for a clutch
problem (which has not been solved yet).
I'm in the process of looking for a new
car. Definitely NOT a BMW.


Best Features

Handling and ride


Worst Features

quality. this is a luxury car, in its last year for this model, it should not have this many problems.

2002 BMW 5 Series Sedan 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I am a car lover, and own 4 cars. The
BMW is the most refined of any car I
have ever owned. Excellent service
with only oil changes and routine
maintenance required. The comfort and
handling are very good.


Best Features

The brakes are extremely effective. The 525I is the smallest displacement of the 5 series, I'm satisfied but would consider the 530I for the extra horsepower.


Worst Features

The only criticism of the car is the poor layout for the drink holders, but I have been told a car like this is to drive and enjoy not to drink in.

Review

I drive my 530i(sports premium,18"
wheels) from Heidelberg to Frankfurt on
a weekly basis. One word..exhilarating.
If performance,quality ride, and luxury
is what you want, then this is the car
to buy. All I can say is that I love
to see the "unlimited speed" signs.


Best Features

Handling, ride, and overall performance


Worst Features

Take away the govern. This car is meant to be driven fast...I should say faster.
