Buy the extended warranty
By Robert on


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


Bought the car with 19K on it. within a week it had a complete electronic failure and lost all systems. Fortunately it was under warranty. Since then, have has several expensive repairs, expansion tank, radiator, Alternator, secondary cooling fan, and miscellaneous other repairs. Always over $500 per visit. Nice car but always something breaking.

Best Features

the handling is great. No sense of speed.

Worst Features

reliability. This car has had too many issues. if it was not paid for I would have traded it in. I do not think I would buy BMW again. Go Acura.
