What a Hassle!
By SLVRG35Coupe on


2004 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Beautiful car, but has caused me nothing
except problems! One day the engine
wouldn't start and when it finally did
the engine would rev and the Service
Engine Soon light would be on. Also, the
Passenger Airbag Off is always lit. To
top off the trouble, today the car
completely broke down! Less than 3
months old, and it is dead. Engine
wouldn't start, emergency lights
wouldn't work, dead! Unbelievable,
nobody can believe it, this is a BMW
we're talking about! I have no clue what
is going to happen, but I am being dead
serious. I hope and am pretty sure that
this doesn't and won't happen to anyone
else, but there's always a chance, so
beware buyers!

See review. Also, speedometer doesn't work properly. There's a letter in the storage compartment stating that the speedometer reads 50 when you're actually driving 57.5 mph. BMW told me they can't even fix it, I just have to deal with it.
