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


we finally put to rest our 1982 MB
deisel wagon,a slowpoke,but good
driver,and solidly built..Looked at
Volvos,Saabs,and BMW's. All in high
30's or more.. Took a test drive in a 5
series wagon,checked out storage space
and found no strut towers blocking rear
space,as in others. The basic 6 is best
engine I have ever driven Imagine what
a 530 with 225 HP would be like.. The
car feels solid and safe. My wife
drives it to Houston evry month ( 400
mi. RT),and just loves it.
Faults: too much plastic in the
interior,and the power seat controls
can get broken easily as they are
housed in cheap plastic..have had to
fix these twice.

Best Features

driveability,cornering,build quality,looks..

Worst Features

Change cheap and unfunctional cupholders,which are useless and block access to a/c controls..
